Our Hero, Blake McElheney

In his very determined and quiet style, Blake McElheney, has been diligently working to preserve the large tract of land to the south of Sunset Beach Elementary. Following in his dad's footsteps, Blake pushed tirelessly forward to put the 1,100 acres of rural land into a community land trust.

After finishing law school, Blake devoted himself to a cause he has been promoting since he was a child. He remembers standing alongside Kamehameha Highway and waving signs that read, "Save Sunset Beach." He did!
Because of Blake's fortitude and tenacity, we now have a huge parcel of land that is dedicated to this community and all who visit the North Shore. Blake was the leader and driving force. What an inheritance we are receiving.
