What do edible flowers, newspaper dresses, a jar full of snakes, and a giant scary costume of a coconut rhinoceros beetle have in common? The first annual CTAHR Day, presented by the Academic & Student Affairs Office, showed how they are all related to CTAHR’s community Extension and research.
Ag finance agent Shannon Sand recently conducted a regional Women in Ag conference at the Komohana Research and Extension Center. It focused on creating and maintaining healthy farms, cultivating resiliency through learning, and fostering the opportunity for women farmers to connect with one other.
Cheng-Sheng Lee, the director of the Center for Tropical and Subtropical Aquaculture housed within CTAHR, discussed the Center’s meeting of its Board of Directors, which reviewed recently completed and ongoing CTSA projects and discussed issues of crucial importance to the state’s and the region’s aquaculture industries.
The National Council for Family Relations (NCFR), the national accreditation agency for the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences, has just developed out a new website about the academic discipline of family science. It’s a great tool to help students and faculty learn what the discipline is about and to educate them on their many and varied career options.

Tyler, originally from Kailua, is now a veterinary student in Italy and is showing that the serious business of learning to be a veterinarian doesn’t have to be so serious after all!
