C. Kimo Alameda, Ph.D

 Biracial and bicultural, Dr. C. Kimo Alameda grew up on theBigIsland, a living example of multiculturalHawaii. His Portuguese and Hawaiian ancestry meant he grew up in two different cultural traditions. These childhood experiences prepared him for his early work as a school counselor and special education teacher. After many years in the Department of Education, Dr. Alameda went back to school and received a doctorate from theUniversityofNebraska. In 2008, Dr. Alameda was presented with an award from Mental HealthAmericaas the Outstanding Government Agency Leader for his work in increasing cultural awareness in state government. As Dr. Alameda accepted his award, he was quoted with saying “we cannot be a first class state, with people who feel second class.” His commitment to diversity has made him a popular speaker on cultural and social issues. On the weekends, Dr. Alameda coaches a number of youth sports and volunteers as a presenter for at-risk youth community programs. Most impressively, Dr. Alameda is the proud father of seven children.

  A short speaker will be President, “Big Dog” who guarantees to make you laugh, 10-15 minutes??   Hoping to get State President Justin Wong to attend who will update you on important items.
