Grad High School 1973

Kamehameha Schools

I attended Kamehameha Schools from 7th-12th grades. I sang with my classmates during the annual student run song contest. I played viola in the orchestra and piano in drama productions.

After graduation in 1973, I returned to campus to teach music to 7th & 8th graders in a special residential summer program to develop leaders.

Wherever I lived on the mainland, I connected with Kamehameha alumni to strengthen my Hawaiian cultural roots. I served as Vice President of our East Coast Alumni Chapter and led the chorus in the annual Kamehameha Day program in our nation’s capitol.
