Nominations being accepted for 2017 Alumni of the Year

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2017 King Kekaulike High School Alumni of the Year.

The award was created by Class of 2014 student, Joebelle Bonete, who wanted a way of memorializing the achievements of alumni and sharing it with the Kekaulike community was through an annual award. Yearly awards already exist for a Kekaulike Teacher of the Year, Class of the Year, and Student of the Year and an Alumni of the Year award seemed only natural.

Bonete took on the award as her senior project and laid the foundational components for the award, which focuses on recognizing individuals who have demonstrated unique accomplishments following graduation from Kekaulike.

Her hope was that the Alumni of the Year would not only inspire up and coming students to think big in what they can accomplish in their future, but also showcase the value of a Kekaulike education.

Requirements include:
– At least 5 years since graduating from King Kekaulike H.S.
– Current info provided to committee (i.e. valid phone number and/or email)
– A member of the KKHS Alumni Association
– A nomination recommending why they should be named Alumni of the Year.


Nominations are being accepted until Friday, April 21, 2017.

The inaugural winner was Dallas Nagata White, a 2004 graduate. Her profile can be found here and 2015 winner April Uyehara here.
