Today at Punahou

The school that made the biggest move during the spring was Punahou (Honolulu). Not even ranked in the top 100 following the winter season, Punahou won five state titles in the spring, had two other runner-up finishes and was ranked No. 3 in in the nation in boys volleyball. The surge allowed Punahou to finish at No. 10.

Each school year at Punahou has a unique theme, and for 2018 – 2019 it’s “E Pili Mai – Seeing Connections, Building Bridges.” Hear more about the thoughtful message that grounds students and teachers as a community.

Malcolm Ing ’52

It’s a late weekday afternoon and Dr. Malcolm Ing ’52 is busy at work in his office. He is still updating patient profiles when we meet for a chat to reflect on his life and his long career as an ophthalmologist. Cloaked in a crisp white laboratory coat, Ing strides agilely across the clinic. His office looks out over a gorgeous panorama of swaying palm trees, the cool blue waters of Ala Moana Beach Park stretching out into the distance.
