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.......
