Mid-Pacific Institute is a private school in the heart of O'ahu that is focused on bringing innovators, artists, and individuals through a technology-enabled immersive classroom environment to prepare them for the world around them.

This vintage-inspired poster was just one of the many ways that the Pacific Historic Parks and the Elvis Foundation commemorated the King of Rock and Roll.
