Mahalo Chancellor Pagotto!

March 01, 2022

On behalf of the Lunalilo Alumni, we would like to thank Chancellor Pagotto for her donation to the Kaneta Leadership Award. Chancellor Pagotto's dedication to the Lunalilo Scholars Program over the past 10 years has made a difference in almost 600 scholars' lives. 

Her confidence in our ability to meet this challenge shows that she believes in us, and this makes all the difference! The creation of the #ChancellorsChallenge inspired 30+ people to take action! Because of this challenge gift, we are halfway to our goal!

With gratitude,
Kapilialoha Kidder and Jennifer Wong-Ala
