Allurie Joy Almogela, c/o 2021

Pacific Region Vice President, SY 2020-2021

Since the McInerny Foundation Early College 3.0 Program at Waipahu High School was the first to have a PTK charter on its campus, having a high school dual-enrolled student taking on higher leadership roles in PTK was uncommon. Ms. Allurie Joy Almogela decided to represent our Beta Chi Omega Chapter by being the first to serve as a Pacific Region Officer. She graduated from Leeward Community College with her Associate’s in Arts degree in Spring 2020, graduated from Waipahu High School with her diploma in Spring 2021, and graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science in Spring 2022.

International Division IV Vice President, SY 2021-2022

In PTK’s 103 years of establishment, there was never a high school dual-enrolled student who served in the international office. That was until Ms. Taylor Fukunaga stepped up to the challenge, serving as the Division IV Vice President. She used her leadership skills to lead 263 chapters in 13 states and 6 countries/territories. During her time in office, Taylor also played varsity softball, was the Student Government President, and so much more! She is now attending the University of La Verne to pursue her Bachelor’s Degree in Communications.
