Goodbye Howard Karr

Keith Amemiya and I bid Howard Karr adieu

Following the Board of Regents meeting May 19, at which Eric Martinson was elected to succeed Howard Karr as board chair, we adjourned to College Hill to bid farewell to Howard and thank him for his service as a regent since 2008.

Mark Fukunaga also completes his term on the board as of the end of June, and we thank him for serving the past two years. May was the first meeting for new regent Saedene Ota, and two more new regents join the board July 1—Coralie Matayoshi and Jan Sullivan.

Regents Carl Carlson and James Lee were elected vice chairs for 2011–2012. We look forward to a new year, which opens with the first board meeting on July 7.
