Elizabeth (Kaaipohuehue Holoua) Stender Delos Reyes; Mother 100% Hawaiian
Albert Kofoad Stender; Father Portuguese, Danish
Graduated from high school 1955 (ST. Louis High School, Honolulu, Hawaii.)
Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard Apprentice School (Pearl Harbor Hawaii)
Worked at Pearl Harbor from 1955 until I retired in 1990, as the Nuclear Production Manage.
I then worked at Kamehameha Schools as the Head of the maintenance Dept. and retired in 2003.
I have always been interested in the Hawaiian community since I was a young man. I was one of the original members of the Kalawahine Homestead Association in the early 1950s. In the 1960 and 70s I became one of the founders of the Kewalo Community Association. I remained as the president or vice president until I retired when I made 75 years old. I belonged to the State Council of Hawaiian Homestead Associations. On Sept. 30. 1993, I represented the SCHHA by presenting a speech to the Mayor and City Council on lowering the land tax rate on Homestead lands. I was also a member of the Nuuanu neighbor hood board for a period of 2 years, providing information between the Kewalo and Papakolea communities on what is happening in the broader Ahapuaa. I have spoken to many younger people and am dissapointed to note that many are too busy raising their families or trying to make ends meet. I therefore will do my best if I am selected, to try to interest the younger generation to carry on. My son who is the recent head of the education branch of Kamehameha Schools is interested, but needs to concentrate on the Schools first. This is the future Dream I have for the Hawaiian people.
