Punahou School President James Scott and his wife Maureen hosted a dinner for Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at their home on the campus Friday night, school spokeswoman Carlyn Tani confirmed.
In a statement, Scott said, "It was a tremendous honor for Punahou School to be asked to host President Medvedev and several of the world's top CEOs at our home. For the last several months our students have been studying about APEC and its member economies, and the evening offered a vivid demonstration of APEC in action."
He added, "It was a great opportunity to discuss economic issues and global affairs, including Hawaii's important role in the Asia-Pacific region."
