“Some of the best years of my life, I spent at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo. I will always support UH Hilo because I am an extremely proud graduate! I believe wholeheartedly that my years spent there, prepared me well for law school, my legal career, but more importantly for life.”
UH Hilo Alumni Board of Directors, President
