Haumāna inspired at PBN’s Women Who Mean Business Awards Dinner

Three haumāna from Kamehameha Schools Kapālama and Samuel M. Kamakau Public Charter School were inspired by some of the state’s top women business leaders at the 21st annual Pacific Business News Women Who Mean Business celebration at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel. They were honored guests of KS, a gold sponsor of the event.

KSK senior Trinity Asing, KSK junior Tai Gibson and Samuel Kamakau senior Mia Sarsona were among the event’s 400 attendees.  Asing spoke on behalf of KS to open the evening and Gibson assisted with presenting the awards alongside Beth Whitehead, executive vice president and chief administrative officer of American Savings Bank.

Meeting mana wāhine and hearing their stories, inspired these young women to set their sights high in whatever fields they decide to pursue. 

Career achievement honoree, Bettina Mehnert – principal of AHL Design – left the audience with this: “If somebody was to ask me what advice I’d give my daughter, I’d say, ‘Honey, no matter what you do, make sure you have fun, and that what you do is relevant. Because that has been the thread all through my life, which has turned out nothing short of absolutely enchanting, and I am far from done.”
