A Historic and Special Day

October 19, 2021
At services like these, we are never entirely sure whether we are allowed to applaud or not. We are allowed, and we hope that applause carries over to those in the choir for their music as well as to all who have spoken. While we are at it, we should acknowledge that President Kauwe’s mother is here in the front row. I think if anyone in the room deserves a little applause, it is Sister Kauwe.

Prepared by the Lord

October 19, 2021
I am inspired by BYU–Hawaii, its mission, its students, and its host community. Today we are also grateful to present one of Hawaii’s own as the new president in this sacred stewardship. In reviewing the life and progress of President Kauwe, I believe we can learn from his example in ways that will not only bless the students of BYU–Hawaii but also offer insights to the very governance and direction of the university.

Together, We Must Continue His Work

October 19, 2021
I testify to you that this university is a vital part of God’s work on earth. He has established it through His prophets to educate His children and help them make and keep sacred covenants. Through honoring those covenants, we learn more of our Savior, grow closer to Him, and become more like Him.

2021 Inauguration Alumni Greeting

October 19, 2021
If I had to describe the Kauwes in one word, it would be LOVE. The Kauwes love you. Their love for you is evident in the way that they serve. They pray for you and your families. Everything they do is to ensure your happiness and success.
