The Punahou Alumni Association’s recognition of outstanding alumni has become a regular part of the school’s Alumni Week in the last few years. Despite 2017 being a non-reunion year, Punahou74’s presence at the ceremony was hard to ignore. You should’ve been there!

AWARDS READY TO GO. Marcia’s and Scott’s are the second and third in line. Since they were first given out in 1954, 165 awards have been made to alumni. The oldest recipient?

PUNAHOU74 MEMORIAL FLORAL TEAM ORGANIZERS included (L-R) Babs Miyano Young, Lynne Gartley Meyer, and Renee Ahuna Cabrinha.

You have to (more…)

A memorial service is about sharing memories about a loved one. Scott Metcalf was loved by many.


In recognition of Scott’s work as a scorer at many athletic events, the scoreboard counted down the time to the start of the celebration. When it went off the service began!

Attended by more than a thousand individuals, Scott Metcalf’s memorial service was celebrated on Sunday, August 3, 2014 in the Hemmeter Field House on the Punahou School campus.

The school gym was an appropriate location for the occasion.

Music was appropriately part of the event and featured the musical talents of Punahou74 classmates (more…)

There is major road construction currently going on at Punahou School. Know what’s effected before you go to avoid problems when attending this Sunday’s service  for Scott Metcalf.

Piper’s Pali has been closed between the Flanders Dance Pavilion and Vancouver Drive. This closure has blocked through traffic from the upper campus gate on Punahou Street to the lower campus gate on Wilder.

Because of this closure there is limited parking on the upper campus.

Suggestion: Enter through the main gate (Punahou and Wilder) or through the Wilder entrance on Piper’s Pali. Guards will direct you to the closest available parking spot.

Did I confuse you? A picture is worth a thousand words they say and here’s one that might help you get the message: (more…)
