Mahalo for visiting the Lahainaluna High School Foundation website! There are many exciting things going on with the Foundation, so please continue to visit our website for updates.
LHSF Stadium Project
The long awaited construction of Phase II of the Foundation's Stadium Project has finally begun. After many delays, the bleacher, restroom building and press box building permits were finally approved in January, and Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company has been making considerable progress since then.
We are still in fund raising mode, as unforseen expenses for a construction project of this magnitude are always possible. We are also needing to be prepared for the day when our magnificent Hellas Matrix athletic field and synthetic track will need replacing. To help with our stadium funding, click on any one of the donate buttons and make sure you designate "other" in the donation category, then write in "stadium project" in the comment box.
We have just implemented a Bleacher Seating Fund. Donors can sponsor a row of bleacher seats for $1,000, or more. The name of the donor, business or graduating class will go on two nameplates that will be affixed to a row of stadium seats. If you are contributing to the Bleacher Fund, designate your graduation year.
We will keep posting new pictures of the progress that we have made on a regular basis, and you can follow those changes by going to the Stadium Project page.
The progress for the bleacher seating campaign is below. To see the complete list of donors, click on this link. If you would like your class to participate, please contact your class representative, or call the LHSF Executive Director at 808-661-5332.
Class totals are listed below:
Class of 1955 $550
Class of 1956 $100
Class of 1961 $1300

Our FAX number has changed. Our new Fax number is 808-442-9053. This new service will direct all incoming faxes to our computer, not only cutting down on paper costs, but will reduce our fax number expenditure by 80% .
Graduation Countdown Begins!
The Foundation has been working with 29 scholarship donors, who will be providing 49 scholarships, for a record amount of $185,000 in available funds this year! The Foundation has had the priviledge of awarding more than $600,000 in scholarship funds we have administered since the program began in 2002.
The application form will be available soon through the school's college and career center.
Our apologies for neglecting to recognize Dr. James Kumagai's (Class of '52) $1,000 donation for the 2013 Lahainaluna Teacher Scholarship in the November issue of our newsletter. Dr. Kumagai started the scholarship in 2005 and has continued it every year since then. We are pleased to announce that the Teacher Scholarship for 2014 has been renewed. Mahalo Dr. Kumagai!
The Lahainaluna High School Foundation presented the 3rd Annual Legends of Lahainaluna Awards, on Thursday, November 21, at the historic Pioneer Inn. The awards were created to honor alumni, staff, community members and businesses who have significantly contributed to Lahainaluna, or in the case of alumni, the community in which they live. The winners will be recognized from three categories, Individual, Posthumous, & Business or Organization.
This year's honorees were Hellas Construction in the Business Category, Mary J. Bolder was honored posthumously, and Reverend Earl Kukahiko was the honoree in the Individual Category.
Last year’s winners included The Makana Aloha Foundation in the Business/Organization category, Alice K.K. Banham (1896-1956) for the Posthumous category, and Andrew Kutsunai & Sue Cooley were both chosen to receive the Individual award.
This year's event was sold out and event attendees enjoyed a light bpupus, a buffet dinner & dessert, hosted bar, entertainment, and awards ceremony.
Be a part of the Lahainaluna Stadium. Construction on Phase 2 will begin soon and orders for brick pavers will end on June 30th. All existing pavers and new pavers will be installed when construction has been completed. Don't miss out! Download the order form today.
