Executive Statement

Throughout the course of human events, mankind's impacts on the environment have stressed the carrying capacity of many of our natural wonders, thus ruining the essence of why we love and enjoy areas such as the Keauhou Kona Coast. Experience has informed us that the only hope for a better future is through education. It is therefore the responsibility of this generation to prepare our sons and daughters for what lies ahead.......
