Randolph Moore, University of Hawaiʻi Board of Regents chair, and his wife Lynne Johnson, have made a $500,000 gift to create the Randolph G. Moore and Lynne Johnson Endowed Fund for Music. This endowment will support the Music Department at the UH Mānoa College of Arts and Humanities primarily in the area of musicology.
UH President David Lassner said, “We are immensely grateful to Randy and Lynne for this very generous gift and the example they are setting for other leaders in our community. It is inspiring to see them supporting their life-long passion for education and community service through this endowment which will make a profound impact on the department and its students for years to come.”
College of Arts and Humanities Dean Peter Arnade added, “This generous endowment will greatly enrich the educational experience of our talented students by supporting guest lecturers, teaching staff support, master classes with guest artists, travel expenses for faculty and guest lecturers/artists, purchase of instruments and so much more.“
