James A. Handrich Service Leadership Endowment Fund

This Endowment was established in June 2007 by HKIS and alumni Desmond Chu ’91 and Kenneth Koo ’79, in honor of Associate Head of School James (Jim) A. Handrich. Jim retired in July 2007. Over his 24 years with HKIS, Jim served as the Elementary School Principal, High School Principal, Interim-Head of School, and Associate Head of School.

The purpose of this Endowment is to help further the school’s Mission Statement and Student Learning Results, specifically “Self Motivated Learning” and "Contributing to Society”. Since 2007, over 20 projects have benefited from the Endowment Fund. For more information about this Fund and how to donate, please contact the Advancement Office at advancement@hkis.edu.hk.
