Mr. Hamada was a teacher, coach, and athletic director.
He began his faculty career at 'Iolani as a teacher in the Math department and later became a Physical Education teacher prior to becoming the Director of Athletics in 1963.
He spread the One Team ethos with kindness and love; expanded it to the whole school. He was sometimes referred to as Mr. 'Iolani or Mr. Aloha. One Team as it is today, with those feelings of love and kindness for each other, is the legacy of Mr. Hamada.
