Students from Ann Kern’s speech communication classes at the University of Hawai`i Center - West Hawai`i will interpret oral histories from Kona Historical Society’s Jean Greenwell Archives. Coming alive will be a wide range of individuals interviewed over the years: cattle and sheep ranchers, coffee farmers, merchants and storekeepers, politicians, professionals, teachers and more - all of them endowed with the indomitable, independent spirit that enabled them to survive in Kona’s early days. Ann Kern is an H.N. Greenwell Store Museum and Kailua Village Walking Tour interpreter for the Kona Historical Society. In addition to teaching speech classes, she was formerly involved as a stage manager and artistic director in several well-known theaters in California. This is the November portion of a community lecture series for 2012 that spotlights local and state speakers on a wide variety of cultural and historical subjects. Presented by Kona Historical Society, in cooperation with the County of Hawai’i, this lecture series is a gift from the Society to the community that has supported it for so long. Free of charge, it is open to all, residents and visitors alike.
