The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa's Public Administration (PUBA) Program presented Kamuela Joseph Nui Enos with the Outstanding Public Service Leadership Award on Friday, April 20, at its alumni reunion and awards event, for his inspiring work at Ma'o Organic Farms. 
David Nixon, Acting Director of the Public Administration Program at UH Mānoa, welcomed the crowd of over fifty students and alumni at Andrews Amphitheatre. Entertainment was provided by Kekoa Kaluhiwa, a 2006 PUBA alumnus.
"I’ve heard Kamuela say many times that Ma'o Farms is raising more than just vegetables - they're raising tomorrow's leaders. That fits perfectly with our program’s mission to 'build public service leadership' so it's natural that we would recognize Kamuela and this remarkable organization with our highest award," stated Nixon.
In addition to the Public Service Leadership award, PUBA recognized Representative Roy Takumi by granting him the Distinguished Alumnus Award, inducted twelve students into Pi Alpha Alpha, the Public Administration’s National Honor’s Society, and named Amanda Sawa as the Outstanding Core Year Student for 2012.
