Alumni Speaker Series
With a generous grant from a long time supporter of the school, we are excited to announce the establishment of the Hawai’i Preparatory Academy Alumni Speaker Series.
“This Alumni Speaker Series is providing us a spectacular opportunity to enrich our community by connecting our students with alumni whose work, knowledge, passions, and life experiences surely will inspire them,” says Director of Alumni relations Patrick O’Leary. “We are most grateful for the wonderful gift that is making this possible.”
Starting in the fall of 2016, the Alumni Speaker Series brings three visiting lecturers to campus each school year. While individual plans will accommodate each speaker, the hope is that visits will include multiple days on campus, giving students a range of opportunities for connection, including guided query in classes, break out discussions in various formats, a senior class specific program, and a culminating address to the HPA community in Davies Chapel.
“Through the generosity of our benefactor, we are able to make travel and accommodation on the Big Island possible for these distinguished alumni,” O’Leary added. “And we are certain that the impact on our students will be priceless.”
Interested in connecting with our students? Alumni with professional wisdom and life experience that will inspire and challenge our students (or if you prefer to nominate someone else), we encourage you to apply.
