Kamehameha Schools Kapālama High School business class haumāna, led by kumu Sheryl Kashiwa, had the opportunity to experience a huakaʻi to Our Kakaʻako and SALT at Our Kakaʻako last week. The day included listening to various speakers share their manaʻo about innovation, entrepreneurship and what it takes to be a business owner in today’s world. Guest speakers included Monica Toguchi from Highway Inn, Colin Yost from RevoluSun, Peter and Debbie Anderson from Morning Brew and KS Senior Planning and Development Manager Bob Oda.
The tour was specifically designed with influential speakers so students would be inspired to strive to be future leaders, and understand how Our Kakaʻako will benefit future generations and all of Hawaiʻi. The huakaʻi is an example of how KS collaborates with like-minded community members and organizations to improve the collective well-being of the lāhui Hawaiʻi.
