Alumni Celebration 2024

At Thursday’s E Ho‘i Mai Alumni Celebration, Punahou alumni from all classes gathered in the Academy Quad for an evening filled with camaraderie, food, drink and music by alumni performers, as part of Alumni Week.

The celebration included an exciting update on the remodel of the Academy’s Cooke Library, which has recently been named the Mary Kawena Pukui Learning Commons in honor of the influential Hawaiian educator, scholar, composer and author, Mary Kawena Pukui (1895 – 1986).

Students from Case Accelerator for Student Entrepreneurship (CASE) were also at the event to showcase their entrepreneurial ventures, including delicious jams and mochi made from imperfect but edible fruit, a butterfly terrarium and shave ice that benefits the Hawai’i Humane Society.

The week’s festivities will culminate in the Alumni Lū‘au on Saturday, a joyous celebration for classes ending in 4s and 9s. This year, the lū’au is being held on Chamberlain Field as Cooke Library, adjacent to Rice Field, is being renovated into the new Mary Kawena Pukui Learning Commons.
