Making faces

But first a word about our runners-up: Their names are Christina Chun and Nancy McCord. They're from Honolulu.

By Nancy McCord

John Waihee IV. Yep, the son. And Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustee.

Now in his early 30s, JWIV earned an associate degree in commercial arts from Honolulu Community College in 1993, worked primarily as manager of Keo's Restaurant (working his way up from busboy) until being elected in 2000 to OHA, the first son of a former Hawaii governor elected to state public office.

JWIV prefers graphite pens over the messiness of charcoal, and acrylics over oils for paintings. When he was elected, he threatened to display some of his artwork at his OHA office.
