Barbara Omoto

Barbara Omoto is a secretary for the men’s basketball program in the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. With 10 years of service, Bobbi, as she is known, is endeared by co-workers and student-athletes for her professional and cheerful manner and for her ability to multi-task while exhibiting the aloha spirit.

In addition to providing administrative support for the men’s program, Omoto voluntarily assumed the same role for the women’s basketball program, often working extra hours for both programs.

Outside of her administrative role, she assists with booster club operations, works sideline control for football games and coordinates the Balloon Brigade for men’s and women’s basketball games.
