Camron (Camie) Kimball – President

I am currently serving as our “Friends of Molokai High and Middle Schools Foundation” President. I have served on our board since its inception in 2001. I’m originally from California, I met my husband Ron Kimball in college and have been on Molokai since 1979 (43) years. We have 2 children, Kealani and Kapena, and 2 grandchildren. I taught in California for 2 years before moving to Molokai. I taught on Molokai from 1979 – 2012. Because of the uniqueness of Molokai I have worn many hats including, Alt learning Center, Student Activities, Physical Education, Asst. Athletic Director , Registrar and retired as the Athletic Director in 2012. I’ve gotten to see all facets of both the High School and Middle/Intermediate Schools. I coached at the high school level for 19 years and 12 years at the community level. My love has always been athletics, sports and this community. Living on the island of Molokai has made me appreciate all the opportunities that I was afforded while growing up in California. Both my husband and I wanted to see that through this foundation, we could enhance the quality of student life by providing competitive opportunities that strengthen a healthy and caring community.

Ronald Kimball – Treasurer

Born and raised on homestead land in Kalamaula Molokai, Ron returned home to Molokai in 1977 after graduating from La Verne College in California with a Liberal Arts degree. Ron worked as the Assistant Manager for the Molokai Community Federal Credit Union for 8 years, then spent the next 33 years serving as the Molokai Island Program Coordinator for the Kamehameha Schools/Bishop Estate. While working for KSBE, Ron developed a close working relationship with the DOE on island, especially former principal, Clifford Horita. It was several “talk story” sessions with Cliff Horita and MHS Alum Greg Helm, that the impetus to start a foundation for Molokai High School began. In 2001, the foundation became a reality. Ron served as the first President of the Friends Foundation with Greg Helm also serving as one of the founding members of the Friends Foundation board of directors. Ron also served as an assistant Basketball coach at Molokai High School for 5 years. With wife Camie Kimball’s 37 years of service at Molokai High School and Molokai Middle School in positions such as P.E. Teacher, assistant Athletic Director, Student Activities coordinator, Registrar, then Athletic director, added to his work assisting with various Kamehameha Schools educational programs, Ron’s commitment to the students of Molokai High School and Molokai Middle School has pretty much been a lifetime endeavor.

Kimberly Mikami Svetin has been a member of the Friends board for four years. She attended Hawai’i public schools from K-12 and graduated from Moloka’i High and Intermediate School in 1987. Kimberly appreciates the values she garnered by attending public schools, which include getting along with people from different backgrounds, becoming an advocate for her education, and honing her communication skills. She received her B.A. degree from Pomona College in 1991 and has worked in non-profit management, marketing, and hospitality from 1991-2005 on the mainland, Maui, Hawai’i Island, and O’ahu. Since 2005, she has been the president of Moloka`i Drugs, founded in 1935 by her late grandfather, Richard Sakata, who was Moloka`i’s first pharmacist. She and her staff at Hawai`i’s oldest independent pharmacy have an “aloha” for their island community. Svetin currently oversees a staff of 28 employees, most of whom work between the pharmacy and the family’s 38-flavor ice cream shop. Kimberly, her husband (Todd ’87 – Brunswick High in Maine), and sons (Erik ’17 and Owen ’22 – Moloka’i High) are all very proud public school graduates. Erik is now finishing an MS in mechanical engineering at the University of Wisconsin and Owen will be starting a BS in elementary education at Montana State University.
