Tribute planned for Kamehameha coach
Kamehameha track and field alumni will give a tribute to veteran coach Henry Lee on Friday, May 9 at 6 p.m. at the Hale Koa Hotel.
Lee, a 1946 Kamehameha graduate, has been a coach for 45 years -- not only in track and not only at Kamehameha. He has also coached football and basketball, and he has held jobs at Waipahu and Kailua.
This year, he's an assistant coach in charge of the hurdles events for the Warriors.
"He has threatened for years to retire from coaching, but we truly believe this will be his last year," said Stacia Peleholani, Lee's daughter. "He has waited years for the completion of the new track at Kamehameha (Kunuiakea Stadium), which was finally completed this past year in time to host this year's state track final."
The cost to attend the tribute is $45, which includes an oriental buffet. To make a reservation or for more information, call Stacia Peleholani at 261-5445.
