Noble Turner: Entrepreneurial Spirit from an Early Age

The thirst for knowledge and the desire to succeed drove this successful businessman

Born into stark poverty on Wickwire Creek, in the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia - once a booming coal mining culture - Noble Turner's life journey is of "storybook" proportions. "My Pap ran the mules through the mine tunnels, and at the age of sixteen he became partially blinded during a dynamite explosion," explained Noble. "After I was born, we lived on Pap's disability check of twenty-six dollars a month.

Alex Ching

Making a name for himself in the golf arena

Alex Ching, a 17-year-old senior at Punahou High School, has a bright future ahead of him. As a member of the Hawaii State Jr. Golf Association, Alex is starting to make quite a name for himself in the golf arena. His passion for golf first started with his father. According to Alex, “My dad started playing golf when I was really young, and he would bring me to the Hawaii Kai driving range. As he hit balls I would watch and then try for myself. I was about five or six around that time. I would stay in the stall next to him, and he would be hitting right-handed and I used to hit left-handed. Although, I switched to right-handed because the left-handed clubs were too expensive."
