Explorations participant, Kamehameha Scholar
Harryson Lum can vividly remember the moment he first realized how fortunate he was to be a part of Pauahi’s legacy.
“While at Summer Explorations, we were brought to the chapel to read Pauahi’s will on the engraved panels above the doors,” said the 2011 graduate of ‘Iolani School. “I realized how fortunate I was to receive such an opportunity, but more importantly, the great kuleana that comes with it to uphold her legacy as beneficiaries.”
Harryson went on to receive post-high and career support through the Kamehameha Scholars program as an ‘Iolani senior. Now as a professional working in communications at his high school alma mater and an owner of the Kūlia Clothing Company, he is paying it forward by giving his time and talent as a mentor to Hawaiian students in the same programs that prepared him for college, career and life.
Harryson gives with Pauahi because he is forever grateful for the opportunities that Pauahi has given to him, and now it’s his turn to give back, so future generations can afford the same opportunities.
