We were delighted to have two special guests at the most recent meeting of the Board of Regents—Senate Majority Leader and Chair of the Senate Hawaiian Caucus Brickwood Galuteria and Judiciary Chair Senator Clayton Hee. They had heard the terrific news that our own Dr. Lui Hokoana, associate vice president for student affairs, was awarded State of Hawaiʻi Manager of the Year recognition at the recent statewide employees’ Governor’s Awards.

This was such an accomplishment and a validation of the hard work Lui has put in over the years to help all who want it pursue a college degree. The two presented a special Senate Certificate honoring Lui as a native Hawaiian for his accomplishments on behalf of all students. Another well-deserved honor for Dr. Hokoana!

Read more about the award and some of the many comments about Lui.
