Paul Breese, the first Honolulu Zoo director, helped the zoo become the first in the world to propagate the Galapagos tortoise. He wins this year’s Outstanding Leadership Award. Above, Robert Sagawa, left, and Breese with a Galapagos tortoise.
Above, the Better Late Than Never Award goes to musician Eddie Kamae. World War II kept Kamae from graduating on time, but he finally marched with the Farrington High School Class of 2010 at the age of 82.
