Ivanelle Hoe, a proud alumna of the University of Hawai‘i, and lifelong physical education teacher at Castle High School, is building on her legacy of giving back. To honor nurses for extending her life since 2007 as she struggled with an aggressive cancer, Hoe established the Ivanelle Hoe Endowed Nursing Scholarship at Kapi‘olani Community College.
Just as nurses cared for her body and mind, the culinary arts too are dear to her heart and integral to her family’s success. In honor of her mother Grace Ching Hoe, her aunt, Arline Ching Hoe, and the members of the Ching and Hoe families she created the Ching – Hoe Endowed Culinary Arts Scholarship to support culinary and budding epicureans at Kapi‘olani CC.
