The volunteer, non-profit Friends of Old Maui High School was organized in 2004 to rescue Maui’s historic school from years of neglect and deterioration and restore it to purpose and prominence, as a resource education facility.
The Friend’s partner with Community Work Day Program, business, government and community leaders, MHS alumni and preservation specialists, carrying out their mission to restore, revitalize and re-use the abandoned school. The Friend’s board and members work to build support, secure funding and promote community involvement, facilitating programs to bring about a rebirth of this important Maui landmark.
When rebuilt, the beautiful 1920 administration building, designed by famed Hawaii architect Charles W. Dickey, will become the Patsy Takemoto Mink Center, honoring the legacy of the late U.S. Congresswoman and the 1944 MHS graduate, who championed equal rights, education and opportunity for all.
The Friends of the Old Maui High School invite you to join them in their goal to restore the historic school which gave inspiration to thousands of students, bringing social, economic and cultural benefits to our county, state and nation. Help us insure the spirit of old Maui High School will live on!
