Notable Alumni from Hawaii's Punahou School

The Times recently wrote about Barack Obama's time at Punahou School in Hawaii. The article mentioned that AOL founder Steve Case was also a graduate. I was impressed with their notable alumni list already. A quick search revealed this was only the tip of the iceberg.

  • Kelly Preston (actress, Mrs. John Travolta)
  • Michelle Wie (golfer)
  • Pierre Omidyar (eBay founder)
  • Sarah Wayne Callies (star of Prison Break)
  • Norm Chow (offensive coordinator, Tennessee Titans)
  • Rod Lurie (creator of Commander in Chief)
  • Jennifer Nicholson (daughter of Jack)
  • Mark Tuinei (late Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman)

I'm sure most big private schools have similar lists. My (public) school can boast of Just Shoot Me star Laura San Giacomo and former Penn State and New York Jets defensive lineman Lou Benfatti. That probably won't be hard to beat.

So tell us. Did anyone notable attend your high school? Extra points for infamous classmates, like Mark Foley, or that crazy, diaper-wearing astronaut.
