Education Fund for Paul's Girls

Paul passed away suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving a devastating void in the lives of his loving wife, Dianne, and his daughters Catherine Hali`a and Elizabeth Nohea. Their daughters Catherine and Elizabeth need our help to begin this new chapter of school without their father. Let us join together and show them the Aloha spirit that Paul lived and taught.

Paul dedicated his life to educating the people of Hawaii and the nation. His spirit lives on as a Hawaiian astrophysicist as his daughters attend university and continue his legacy of higher education. Help Catherine and Elizabeth during their academic pursuits in memory of their loving father Paul.

The daughters have been accepted to prestigious schools because of their hard work. Dianne will need our help to provide for her daughters and any remaining end of life costs. 

Catherine Hali`a will be graduating summa cum laude with a major in Public Relations and Psychology and with a minor in Public Health from the University of Miami on May 11th, 2018. She has been accepted to Syracuse Newhouse School Masters Program for Advertising. She starts this new educational journey July 1st, 2018.

Elizabeth Nohea is a freshman at Dartmouth College. She is currently studying Native American Studies, Studio Art, and Psychology. She is involved in the Native American Program and is a Peer Ambassador for The Center for Professional Development.

Education was the focus of Paul's life along with his family. This fund will be used to help them continue their education as their father would have wanted them to. 

Share this campaign and let's continue Pauls legacy.

Mahalo nui loa.
