Chief Louis Kealoha honors last all-girl grad class from St. Francis School | Events
Honolulu Police Chief Louis Kealoha was a special guest at the honors assembly for the St. Francis School Class of 2012 on March 21. The 53-member class will be the school's last all-female graduating class.
St. Francis School, founded in 1924, started turning coed in 2006.
Kealoha has an emotional connection to the school because his mother, the former Beatrice Peters, graduated from St. Francis in 1954.
The chief told the girls they should value and pursue their educational goals so that no one else will ever have to speak for them. He said that education will strengthen their identities.
After Kealoha spoke Sister Joan of Arc Souza, head of school, greeted senior award winners, including valedictorian Wealth Salvador.
