Congratulations to the winners of the 2022 Community Heroes Awards which honor and recognize residents who have exemplified outstanding leadership and volunteer service to their community. Pictured here are the winners from Pearl City and ‘Aiea communities, Larry Veray and Karen Higa. They are flanked by Rep. Aaron Johanson, Senator Bennette E. Misalucha and Keone Kealoha of Kanu Hawaii.

This year, the Office of Representative Lisa Kitagawa (House District 48) and Office of Representative Nadine Nakamura (House District 14) recognized one winner from each of their districts, Ron Garrison (Kauai) and Mahealani Cypher (Kane’ohe) respectively.


Kanu Hawaii provides tools and opportunities for people to connect with one another – to take action that builds more compassionate and resilient communities across Hawaii. 


Hawaii’s people are equitably thriving through healthy and vibrant relationships, shared aloha, and a deep rooted kuleana for one another and Honua (the Earth).
