Marcia Reed '54 Wythes experienced Punahou at one of its most unusual historical moments and still credits the School with providing an outstanding education that continues to inspire her today. She arrived as a kindergartner in 1941, only months before the bombing of Pearl Harbor resulted in the Army Corps of Engineers' takeover of campus for the duration of World War II.
Teaching the mechanics of a basketball free throw is one thing, but how do you teach an athlete how to make a free throw when the game is on the line? Looking to answer that question, Punahou welcomed sports performance consultant Dr. Mike Voigh, who visited the School Oct. 4 – 5.
From creating learning environments that inspire wonder and curiosity, to assuring access for talented students who will change the world, to supporting teachers' innovation and creativity – Punahou's donors sustain the School and help it fulfill its mission.
