I am an alumna, former parent of four students, and weekly volunteer at Punahou. Unlike most who would choose to "move on" once their student days or the days of their student children are completed, I still faithfully come to Punahou each week. (I have condensed my full-time work week to do so!)
I currently manage a project that honors the school's history and love every moment I spend there. I respect the school, its mission, and the individuals who are a part of its historic fabric. That I can codify the daily life that is and was experienced at Punahou both excites and helps me grow intellectually. The individuals with whom I work are respectful and give me both the latitude and the tools to do my job. I feel that I am supported and valued while I work in a pleasant environment. What more can I ask for in a volunteer opportunity?
Punahou gave me a great start in life. Punahou gave each of my children a great start in life. I am truly thankful for that. I am also thankful that I can offer something back in return for the priceless gift that was given to me and my family. Go Punahou!
