Pahoa’s Kua O Ka La Charter School Principal Named to Who’s Who’s List in Education Administration

Media Release:

Susan Leigh Osborne, Principal of Kua O Ka La Public Charter School, has been named Cambridge Who’s Who Professional of the Year in Education Administration. While inclusion in Cambridge Who’s Who Registry is an honor, only two male and two female members in each discipline are named the Cambridge Who’s Who Professional of the Year. The Cambridge Who’s Who selection committee chooses these special honorees based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, and leadership abilities.

Passionate about the importance of a cultural education, Susan Leigh Osborne channeled nearly 20 years of accumulated experience into the establishment of Hawaii’s Kua O Ka La Public Charter School. For the past eight years, she has served as the school’s principal and executive administrator. Ms. Osborne handles the school budget and pours her efforts into educational program development and grant composition.

A persevering and hard-working educator, Ms. Osborne notes that she recognized the need for a quality education for the native children of Hawaii—one that would provide not only a standard course of curriculum but specialized instruction with roots deeply embedded in the ancient Hawaiian culture. Looking to the future, Ms. Osborne intends to continue developing the 600-acre coastal village site where Kua O Ka La Public Charter School is located. She also plans on focusing her efforts on community-related and nonprofit work.

Ms. Osborne attended the Harvard Graduate School of Education and earned a certification through the Hawaii Alliance for Community-Based Economic Development. She is a certified paralegal and holds a certification from the Principals Academy. Ms. Osborne is the vice president of the Hawaii Charter Schools Network and is an affiliate of Na Lei Na’au’ao Hawaiian Charter School Alliance and the Hawaii Island Chapter of the United Nations.
