Funds Help School Go The Distance

First Hawaiian Bank Foundation donated $100,000 to Parker School on Hawai‘i island, which used the funds to purchase two school buses to transport students to athletic competitions and on field trips. FHB chairman, president and CEO Bob Harrison says the company is pleased to help the institution as access to both academic and athletic opportunities are an essential part of the educational experience.
