June 17, 2020

An example of how a principal with a vision and totally transform a school — and create the only Mandarin immersion program in Hawai’i. Which, thankfully, will continue on.

Aloha, President Perry Martin


The outgoing Maryknoll president’s vision for the school parallels the founding sisters’ mission and charism

By the Maryknoll Sisters of the Central Pacific Region

We Maryknoll Sisters would like to express our deep gratitude to Perry Martin for his leadership, vision and values as president of Maryknoll School for the past 12 years. He has led the school in a very extraordinary way with a compassionate heart deeply rooted in the teachings of the Catholic Church.

The Maryknoll Sisters had many opportunities planning events with President Martin and his staff. He is very committed to the mission of the Maryknoll Sisters and the charism of our founder, Mother Mary Joseph Rogers. He is a compassionate leader with a sincere devotion to prayer through the rosary. About a year ago when we Maryknoll Sisters accompanied a critically sick sister, it was President Martin himself, who led the rosary.

He has kept the Maryknoll Sisters worldwide congregation connected to the school, intentionally, through many school events and activities. President Martin and other school personnel visited the Maryknoll Sisters motherhouse in New York to enhance students’ learning. We take pride in his vision for the school because it parallels our mission and charism and teaches future generations about the Maryknoll Sisters’ history, purpose and charism. We have seen, firsthand, how Maryknoll students practice a missionary consciousness, able to use those skills at a young age. President Martin is committed to providing leadership through his forward-thinking mindset, positioned and always poised to embrace our mission and integrate it into the life of the school.
