Kamehameha Schools parent
To Felicia Lum, Pauahi is a gift. The Princess gave her two sons Blaise Baldonado KSK’05 and Chris Lum KSK’19 a chance to succeed in life through education. Both of them entered Kamehameha Schools Kapālama in the fourth grade.
Felicia Lum made sure they never took their educational opportunity for granted, and instilled in her sons to always pay it forward by serving others who are less fortunate.
In August 2015, Felicia faced what no parent should have to ever experience — losing a child. Her son Blaise passed away at the age of 28. What gave her solace in her time of sorrow was the full life he lived as a giving and caring person who impacted many.
To celebrate his life, and carry on Pauahi’s legacy of giving, she created the Blaise A. Kepo‘okelaokekai Baldonado Scholarship at the Pauahi Foundation.
