Hawaii Preparatory Academy students Scott Fetz, Noor Sarwar, and Eliana Kaplan attended the 24th Annual National Service Learning Conference, March 13-16, in Denver. The conference, “Without Limits,” featured several keynote speakers, including: Naomi Tutu, daughter of Desmond Tutu; Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, and R. Dwayne Betts and Marc Kielburger of Free the Children Foundation.

The students presented at a showcase event about HPA projects, Back to Tap and the OXFAM Hunger Picnic. The students also visited the University of Denver and the University of Colorado-Boulder campuses.

“We’re very grateful to the HPA ‘Ohana Association’s Kokua Fund and to the James M. Greenwell Endowment for Service for supporting our students’ participation at this conference as they strive to make a difference on our campus, in our community, and in the world,” said Mark Noetzel, HPA’s dean of co-curricular programs.
