Kamehameha Schools Trustee

We champion every Hawaiian learner to explore their potential to lead our lāhui and inspire the world. Hānai i ke keiki, ola ka lāhui. Nurture the child and the lāhui thrives.

The enduring legacy of a princess who had a deep desire to see her people flourish continues to transform the lives of countless keiki. Ke Ali‘i Bernice Pauahi Bishop recognized the power of education to uplift Native Hawaiians and offer hope for their future.

By operating world-class Hawaiian schools and engaging with communities to transform educational systems, we will raise ‘ōiwi leaders who are empowered and unified, and who will solve the issues of our people and communities.


In accordance with the 1999 Master’s Report on the procedure for selection of trustees, the Screening Committee is now seeking active leaders from the community with a deep sense of commitment and willingness to carry Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop’s vision and legacy into the future.

  • A history of success in business, finance or related areas
  • Received a formal education
