Aloha, Retirees

Punahou’s 27 retirees, as well as longtime employees celebrating milestone anniversaries, were honored Wednesday at the School’s annual Aloha Ceremony. Faculty and staff celebrating 10-year, 15-year, and all the way up to 45-year-anniversaries attended the event at the Chapel, along with their friends, colleagues and family members.

Among this year’s retirees is President Jim Scott ’70, who was honored by Punahou Trustee Ethan D.B. Abbott ’72 with a heartfelt speech.
