“Honoring friends with a tribute is a small, yet meaningful, way to recognize just how much I appreciate others and their contributions to making Kamehameha Schools a great place to work at.”

Bran-Dee Torres, Annual Giving Programs Director, Office of Advancement

“I give to the Pauahi Foundation to honor my fellow colleagues during Service Awards each year because of their commitment and dedication in furthering the mission of Ke Ali‘i Pauahi. It was an honor receiving kahiau cards from my fellow colleagues, knowing we work together to educate and uplift our lāhui.”

Dana Huddy, Enterprise Technology Asset Analyst II, Information Technology

“I believe in the great work Kamehameha Schools is doing in memory of Princess Pauahi for the benefit of the indigenous Hawaiian population. Giving back my reward to the Pauahi Foundation is a small ‘thank you’ for everything KS is doing for the Hawaiian community.”

Jason “Maui” Namahoe, Applications Engineer, Information Technology
