In our previous blog, we mentioned the enormous contributions Sue D. Cooley has made in support of the Lahainaluna High School stadium project (now known as the Sue D. Cooley Stadium.) So great  has her support been that the State of Hawaii has bestowed upon Mrs. Cooley a certificate in her honor. Here is a transcript that proclamation:

WHEREAS, Mrs. Sue D. Cooley and her late husband have a legacy of giving to higher education in the Pacific Northwest and Mrs. Cooley has continued this philanthropy for public education as well as health services on Maui;

Introducing the Sue D. Cooley Stadium
The Lahainaluna Stadium Project named for top benefactor Sue D. Cooley
November 16, 2014

sue d cooley

On November 1st, 2014, Sakamoto Properties and the many students, faculty, and supporters of Lahainaluna High School gathered to present the unveiling of the new Lahainaluna stadium projects' official name: the Sue D. Cooley Stadium.

Dedicated to the valued member of our community whose support enabled this massive project to come to fruition, the Sue D. Cooley Stadium boasts what could quite possibly be the nicest stadium in the entire state. Featuring over 3,000 bleacher seats as well as the same field utilized by the NFL's Dallas Cowboys, the new stadium is truly a marvel on the slopes of the West Maui Mountains. In addition to the heartfelt gratitude paid to Mrs. Cooley by our West Maui community members for her generous contributions, the State of Hawaii Board of Education has also acknowledged Mrs. Cooley's contribution to the Lahainaluna Stadium project by issuing an official proclamation honoring all that she has done for our Maui home.

While Mrs. Cooley's generous donations have enabled much to be accomplished, there is still work to be done to finalize the completion of the Sue D. Cooley Stadium. As such, the Lahainaluna High School Foundation is currently holding a "bleacher campaign." For a donation of just $1,000 you will get a row of bleachers named after you or as you direct. This is a fantastic way to help a great cause, as many  of our friends, including ESPN's Neil Everett, can attest to:
