Former Kamehameha Dance Company Director Erin Regua was promoted to vice principal for the KS Kapālama High School class of 2018 at the start of the 2014-15 school year.

She joins KSK high school vice principals Scott Parker, Randie-Ann Tang and Hailama Farden. This is the first school year in which there is one vice principal assigned to each student class.

The new leadership structure will enable each vice principal to remain with a student class through graduation. Regua will remain with the class of 2018 for this school year, and follow them throughout their high school careers.

“Erin’s intuition is really solid,” said KSK High School Po‘o Kumu (Principal) Julian Ako. “I think the work she did in performing arts helps her out a lot in making this transition. What I like about her is she has an outstanding emotional quotient. She’s not judgmental, rather very matter-of-fact. And she’s also very compassionate, all four of our vice principals really are.”

Regua graduated from KS Kapālama in 1997, and is thrilled to share her class color with her freshmen class of 2018.

She has spent the last 14 years serving as Kamehameha Dance Company director and the last nine years as the chair of the KS Kapālama High School Performing Arts Department.

Regua received a bachelor of arts degree in dance from the University of Hawai‛i at Mānoa and a masters of education degree in Educational Leadership from Concordia University.

She and her husband Charley reside in Mililani, and share a passion for performing arts and education. As proponents of lifelong learning, both are currently pursuing their doctor of education degrees in transformational leadership online, through Portand’s Concordia University.

In her spare time, Regua loves to travel and spend time with her family.
