Hung Wo and Elizabeth Lau Ching Foundation Award for Faculty Service to the Community
Service Award Winner
Roberta Lynn Brashear
Hawaii Community College
Roberta Lynn Brashear is a lecturer in the natural sciences department at Hawaii Community College. She’s an active volunteer with numerous educational, community and environmental organizations, including the Sierra Club where she is the Moku Loa Group Chair and a delegate to the National Sierra Club Council. In addition, Brashear has mentored students in the service learning program, been a project coordinator for National Make a Difference Day and served as a judge for the annual Hawaii Sciences and Engineering Fair.
Brashear spends many hours attending county meetings and public hearings, and providing testimony on environmental issues that impact the lives of Big Island residents. Her philosophy is "one should be committed." Brashear’s dedication has done much to help build the reputation of Hawaii Community College and to strengthen the campus’ ties with the Big Island community.
For a decade, the Hung Wo and Elizabeth Lau Ching Foundation Award honored faculty members for significant contributions that strengthened ties between the University of Hawaii and the community. The award is no longer given.
