Alumni Month 2020 — Week 3: Mea ‘ai

We began our Kūpuna Pā‘ina three years ago with the intention of providing our kūpuna classes, who had already celebrated their 50th reunion, an opportunity to celebrate with their classmates, knowing they may not be able to wait another 5 years. Kamehameha Schools Leadership and Board of Trustees graciously offered to serve our kūpuna honoring their legacy and their contribution to the history and mana‘o of Kamehameha Schools. This year, alumni purchased meals for their kūpuna classmates in the decades of the 40s, 50s, and 60s, in celebration of the meal that we could not physically share together, and we are proud to have served a meal to kūpuna all over the pae ‘āina. “Serve with Aloha, Warrior Style” has become not just a kāhea to share aloha, but to kōkua our community in this remarkable time. “It’s a privilege to serve our kupuna and we pray for their safety during these challenging times,” said CEO Jack Wong. Mahalo nui to all of our Warriors who shared their time and gifts to make this possible! I Mua Kamehameha!
