The Coach Who Cared
For the past 19 years, a golf tournament has been held in his honor to raise funds for the Edward K. Hamada Scholarship which benefits students who show great promise in academics and athletics as well as the desire to perpetuate the One Team spirit.
The following pages feature three ‘Iolani graduates who were recipients of the Edward K. Hamada Scholarship. After ‘Iolani, each pursued different goals. Yet all share love and respect for Coach Hamada and are deeply grateful for the scholarship in his name.
Through these graduates, the ways of Coach Hamada live on. Derrick Low ’04, Leanani Keanini ’08 and Isaac Ickes ’04 – along with so many other young people - will never forget the coach who took time to share pearls of wisdom or to just say hello. In their own lives, they carry on his good deeds while remembering the coach who cared.

Thank You Coach Hamada! Two of my children were recipients of his scholarship and they would not have been able to attend 'Iolani School without this. God Bless this wonderful man and also to the staff at 'Iolani who make this possible.
