This is pretty cool. Mrs. Maunakea is resigning as executive director of the Institute for Human Services to work as the executive director of the Ke Ali'i Pauahi Foundation, a nonprofit, charitable support organization of Kamehameha Schools that is dedicated to increasing educational opportunities for Hawaiians everywhere. That is so cool! My mother knows her and though she is not oiwi (or "Hawaiian" in Hawaiian) she is married to a Hawaiian and will be working to help increase educational opportunities for Hawaiian children. That's so cool!
Here is the story:
Lynn Maunakea, left, executive director of the Institute for Human Services, visits Funie Sokono, 24, her 2-year-old daughter, Mifninsury, and 16-month-old nephew, Panamo, in the family room at the IHS women's shelter. Maunakea has spent 8 1/2 years leading the shelter.
