Rotary Club of Kahala Sunrise Honors Everyday Community Heroes

Honolulu, Hawaii -- The Rotary Club of Kahala Sunrise will honor members of the local community who give selflessly to help others every day, at its inaugural Everyday Community Heroes Breakfast on Wednesday, February 23 at 7:30 a.m. at Kahala Nui.

"There are so many people in our community who go about serving others as part of their every day jobs and never seek any recognition, but we wanted to take the time to salute their unsung efforts and tell them how much they are appreciated," said Gloria King, president of The Rotary Club of Kahala Sunrise.

The honorees recognized at the breakfast event include:

  • Brittnie Cornell, case manager for Community Empowerment Services in Honolulu, who serves the mentally ill homeless population on Oahu.
  • Mike Nakada, Metropolitan Police Lieutenant assigned to Central Complaints Detail of the Narcotics/Vice Division, who handles drug complaints from Makapu'u to the end of Kalihi, and has been with HPD for 23 years.
  • Sebastian Sheldon, Pawa'a Fire Station, Fire Fighter, with HFD for 15 years.
  • Kelly Lopes, Special Needs Teacher, Liholiho School
  • Michael Chong Gum, Reservist, U.S. Army

Joseph Rothstein, Community Service chair for The Rotary Club of Kahala Sunrise, said the honorees were recommended by community members who knew of the good work that these citizens perform day in and day out in the course of their jobs. He noted that everyday heroes exist in many communities, and the Rotary breakfast event was an opportunity to express the Club's appreciation for the work of these citizens.

The Rotary Club of Kahala Sunrise is an active, community-involved service organization that helps causes both locally and internationally, financially and through action, especially youth and those in need in our community.
