Kupuna Achievers: Lenley Hawksworth

Arcadia’s very own Mr. Lenley Hawksworth was just in grade school when he witnessed the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Decades later, Mr. Hawksworth now volunteers at Pearl Harbor every Tuesday, sharing his childhood story and helping guests understand more about the attack. He enjoys recounting his memories of that important day and sharing his experiences with the many visitors of Pearl Harbor.

Mr. Hawksworth is no stranger to serving others: He was in the ROTC at Kaiser High School and also served as a Lieutenant in the Army. He eventually made his way to the YMCA for the duration his career.

Thank you, Mr. Hawksworth, for all that you do in the community. We’re proud you are a part of Arcadia’s ohana!
