Geography

The Windward side of Oahu is divided into two districts, Koolau and Hukilau.  Koolau begins from the north end of Kualoa Point and ends at the south end of Makapuu Point in Waimanalo. Hukilau starts from the east side of Pupukea Road and ends at Kualoa Point off Kamehameha Highway.  The map below reflects the Koolau boundaries.

Key Leadership

District operations in Koolau are lead by three key volunteers. 

1. Jack Shriver, District Chairman

As District Chairman Jack oversees the District Committee. He supports the units through trainings, membership drives, fundraising, and large district events like Camporee.

2. Godfrey Kaonohi, District Commissioner

As District Commissioner Godfrey provides direct support to units through his corp of Unit Commissioners. Unit Commissioners are essentially consultants who are embedded directly with the units, offering advice and connecting the unit to services on the council and district level.

3. Richard Galluzzi, District Executive

As District Executive, Richard is the sole paid professional in Koolau. He acts as a liason between council and the district, helps Godfrey and Jack understand their roles and manage their people effectively, and fills gaps as need be.
