Gerald Andrade (President)
I am a graduate of Waianae High School and a parent of one child, Makana Andrade (KS ’18). When my wife Shelle and I received the news 11 years ago that Makana had been accepted to Kamehameha we felt so blessed. Since then it has been a goal of mine to continue to give back to Pauahi and the KS community through volunteering.
As an engineer and project manager at an engineering firm I find myself blessed with the skill set to serve you well as a parent representative. As parent reps we are charged with the responsibility of communicating parent concerns to the administration, collaborating as we seek solutions to important issues, and planning and organizing events.
I am proud to serve you as this year’s ATP President. It is my sincere hope that the my participation along with other ATP parent representatives will make a positive difference in the lives of our KS ‘ohana.
Nadine Jacang (Vice-President)
Nadine (KS ’88) and husband David are parents to five keiki: Kawika (KS 2017), Karina (KS 2019), Kanoa (KS 2021), Kainani (KS 2023) and Kainalu (2027). She and her ‘ohana live in Ewa Beach. When their schedule allows it, they enjoy spending time at the beach.
To the class of 2017 ‘ohana she says, “I am looking forward to working with our families and helping our keiki (and ourselves) get through junior year successfully. Imua Great Whites!”
Wendy Saelua (Secretary)
Aloha kākou! I am so honored to serve as your ATP Secretary and part of the Class of 2021. My name is Wendy Saelua (rhymes with Kailua), aka Wendy Webster, KS ‘90.
I have been married to my college sweetheart, Lindell, for over 20 years. We reside in Nu‘uanu with our daughter Kaitlyn (KS 2021) and son Makana (2024). My husband and I are both Registered Nurses. I’m at the University of Hawai‘i Mānoa Health Services and my husband is in the ICU at Queen’s.
I grew up in Pearl City where I witnessed my parents always volunteering to help with anything related to their five kids. They both worked full-time but always found time and energy to volunteer with numerous Kamehameha Ho‘olaule‘a, orchestra events and various sports teams. I have always admired them for that and now I have the opportunity to do the same. Mahalo ke Akua, PAR, ATP, KS ‘Ohana and our Class of 2021. IMUA Kamehameha!
