Trip to Washington, D.C.

I spent a week in Washington, D.C., earlier this month meeting and connecting with a number of different university constituencies.

The East-West Center is celebrating its golden anniversary this year, marking 50 years of success in promoting better relations and understanding among the people and nations of the United States, Asia and the Pacific. I had the opportunity to attend its 50th Anniversary Celebration, and I met and spoke with a number of East-West Center and UH alumni at a special event with the UH Alumni Association. It was a great experience to hear from these alumni about their affinity for the university and their ideas for how we can continue to engage them.

Leeward Culinary Arts Gala

Leeward Community College recently held its annual Leeward Culinary Arts Gala, known as L’ulu. The social event of the Leeward side, which provides an opportunity to invest in educational opportunities for Hawai‘i’s culinary students, brought together the leaders of Hawai‘i’s Regional Cuisine in support of the college’s Culinary Arts Program.

Guests indulged their senses with the delectable cuisines of Hawai‘i’s finest chefs alongside the Culinary Arts Program’s instructors and students.

Expanding on Leeward’s Culinary Hall of Fame, the Culinary Arts Program highlighted the “Hawai‘i Regional Cuisine Wall of Fame” featuring the 12 founding chefs of the movement that put Hawai‘i on the culinary map and honored Chef Philippe Padovani at this year’s event for his achievements and contributions to culinary education.
