Noah’s focuses his time serving his Native Hawaiian culture, youths in the community and his faith.  As a graduate of Kamehameha Schools, a school for children of Native Hawaiian decent, he was a product of their motto “cultivating engaged servant leaders” and “developing ʻōiwi leaders for tomorrow”. “Ōiwi” refers to Native Hawaiian. Noah takes great pride in his heritage by volunteering to restore scared cultural sites and the “aina”, the land. He believes it is his “kuleana”, his duty, to take care of the aina for generations to come. Noah volunteers for Hawaiian community service projects that restore ancient fishing lands and taro patches that feed the community. All in an effort to make Hawaii more sustainable and less dependent on imported food from the continental U.S. by using Native Hawaiian practices and traditions.  He devoted time to building a traditional Hawaiian Hale (hall/building) near his home at a local community college so that the community and students of Windward Community College would have a Native Hawaiian place of learning.  His servitude to his culture is enriching the lives of young and old in Hawaii.

Why was the Wuerffel Trophy created?  We felt that there was a void in major college football awards. Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel put it best when he wrote, “The Wuerffel. It’s about time. There’s an award for the best quarterback, best running back, wide receiver, best linebacker, best center and even best kicker and punter. Why not one for the best human being?”
