Les Baer ’67
Les Baer has been a longtime supporter and organizer of Punahou alumni events in and around the Washington D.C. area and helped found the PAA Mid-Atlantic Chapter in 2010. Les was instrumental in keeping alumni connected in the DC Metro area by hosting events at his home.
As the child of a military family, Baer only attended Punahou for two years. He says Punahou represents ‘ohana, and he has always felt connected to the school and its alumni.
Baer, a high school teacher in Alexandria, Virginia, could not attend the ceremony in person, but offered remarks by video. Of his Old School award, Baer said, “So many wonderful alumni have stepped forward to engage and connect alumni. We did this all together.”
