Duncan MacNaughton ’62, a real estate developer, trustee and alumnus, received Punahou Alumni Association’s most prestigious award, the “O” in Life, in recognition of his contributions to the School and community.
To celebrate MacNaughton’s award, past honorees, trustees, President Jim Scott ’70, family and business associates attended a special luncheon May 16 at the President’s Pavilion.
MacNaughton has served as a trustee since 1997, and has led as chairman and vice-chair. Most recently, he co-chaired the Ku’u Punahou campaign, helping the School raise funds towards its $175 million goal, one of the largest among independent schools nationwide. He will finish his tenure June 30, alongside classmate and fellow trustee Warren Luke ’62.
“Punahou is more than an education. It’s family, it’s the Punahou community, the ‘ohana,” MacNaughton said. “The ‘O’ is especially meaningful and symbolic to me. It’s circular, and as such, is never ending. My journey is still continuing.”
