Kipapa Elementary School principal Corinne Yogi received the 14th annual Masayuki Tokioka Excellence in School Leadership Award from the Island Insurance Foundation. Yogi was presented the $25,000 award at the annual Public Schools of Hawai‘i Foundation banquet at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel on April 19.
The award is named in honor of Island Insurance Company, Ltd. founder Masayuki Tokioka and is presented annually to a local public school principal who is visionary, community-minded and has an entrepreneurial spirit — leadership qualities that Tokioka exemplified.
“Principal Yogi is a leader who is transforming Kipapa Elementary into a model learning institution,” said Island Insurance Foundation president Tyler Tokioka. “By recognizing outstanding principals such as Corinne, it is our hope that her accomplishments will inspire others in public education.”
