School Leader: Kris Richards


Kris “Aunty Kris” Richards was born in the Philippines and grew up in the Seattle, Washington area. The daughter of a school teacher and a lawyer, Kris often finds herself advocating on behalf of children or youth for a variety of educational needs. Kris and her husband, Randy, together with their two sons, moved to Kona nine years ago from the Pacific Northwest, where Kris taught in both public and private schools. On the YWAM base, she has served on the core team with Wai’aha International Family School, trained teachers with Educating for Life in countries around the Pacific, and—her biggest passion—acted as a link to the greater community by setting up local outreach to children and youth across Kona.
