Jeff and David are seniors and good friends. They've attended Punahou since kindergarten and play water polo together. But over the years, David has noticed some growing differences between them. Jeff is one of the "smart kids." He has always taken honors and AP classes, even in the summer.
Stuart Gurney and Junjun Wu-Gurney
For Stuart Gurney and Junjun Wu-Gurney, crossing borders has always opened up opportunities. Their generous gifts to the Wo International Center and the Junior School honor the idea of expanding horizons and serve as a gracious thanks for the education that their son, Sean Gurney '92, received.
Each year, over 5,000 alumni celebrate their Class Reunion. It is not only a time to reconnect with classmates, but also allows for reflection and appreciation of treasured memories of their time at Punahou.
