Ka Pouhana Mentorship

Teresita “Tessie” Amore of TPSS is CTAHR’s 2023 recipient

Ka Pouhana Mentorship

Receiving this year’s Ka Pouhana Dean’s Award for Excellence in Mentoring is a testament to the abilities of Dr. Teresita Amore of the Dept. of Tropical Plant and Soil Sciences. 

Throughout her time at CTAHR, Tessie has served as a constant source of guidance for students, further emphasized by the many students she has mentored directly. Since earning her M.S. in 1986 and PhD in 1991 from CTAHR, she has and continues to serve the college as an outstanding teacher, colleague, and mentor.

Tessie has dedicated her life to growing Hawaiʻi's horticultural industry – both through scientific research as well as through mentorship of students, other faculty, staff, and members of the community. Her impact cannot be overstated and her nomination for the award shows how much students value her guidance and her support of their holistic development.
