Pacific Century Fellows
A graduate of the White House Fellows program, Mufi Hannemann founded the Pacific Century Fellows in 1997 to develop leaders with a greater awareness and sensitivity to the people and institutions of Hawai‘i and the Pacific Basin. Fellows gain a broader view of civic duty through direct contact with leaders in government, military, business, labor, education, social services and the like. The program encourages the development of long-term relationships between leaders, spanning all generations, united in their commitment to find creative solutions to the challenges facing Hawaii. The Pacific Century Fellows program has had 12 classes and will be recruiting in 2012 for its fourteenth class. For more information, please visit www.pacificcenturyfellows.com.
Mufi Hannemann Basketball Jamboree
The Mufi Hannemann Basketball Jamboree was established as an annual showcase for local female basketball players who had few other opportunities but nonetheless place proportionately far more players in NCAA schools. The program, which began in 1994 as a small step toward gender equity, has since featured just about every top high school and college player in Hawaii at one time or another. Proceeds from the event go to the Hawaii High School Athletic Association. Sixteen teams in three age divisions will compete during annual tournament.
