In honor of Cathy Nobigra-Kim
Cathy Nobriga-Kim graduated from St. Anthony in 1974. The ensuing formational years were at the heart of a lifelong dedication to sustaining the mission and values of her alma mater. She never stopped being a proud alumna.
From 2010-2017, she served as chair of St. Anthony’s Junior-Senior High School Board. She volunteered on many committees over her ten years to move the school forward, one of the most significant being the Parish Education Council. During her tenure of leadership on that body, she provided wise counsel as key decisions were made to position St. Anthony for sustainability and growth, not the least of which was the action of converting St. Anthony to a one-school model.
In 2017, she was instrumental in transitioning St. Anthony to the new model and readily accepted a seat on the newly formed St. Anthony School Board and a leadership role as Secretary of the board. As the Board convened and governed for the first time in the school’s 165-year history her guidance at pivotal moments and collegial spirit earned her the respect and gratitude of her fellow directors.
This was Cathy: unwavering in her dedication, remarkable vision, and a warm and compassionate heart.
There is no way to capture the magnificence that was Cathy with the positive influence and love she inspired for SAS over the years. Cathy was respected as an incredible business expert and a vital part of St. Anthony School’s ‘ohana. SAS has suffered a great loss, her presence, generosity and guidance will be missed by all.
Mahalo nui dear Cathy. We walk proudly in your footsteps and hold your legacy of values as a beacon for the future of St. Anthony School.
In lieu of flowers, the Nobriga-Kim ohana is humbly asking to support St. Anthony School in monetary gifts. As an esteemed alumni, Cathy’s support and passion for St. Anthony School was unwavering. As a passionate board member and integral part of the St. Anthony ohana, Cathy’s heart will always grace the school’s campus. Mahalo.
