A healthy and sustainable project spearheaded by TPSS’s Ted Radovich and Ilima Ho-Lastimosa, as well as Public Health Studies professor Jane Chung-Do, got props from Civil Beat in a recent laudatory article. The MALAMA (Mini Ahupua‘a for Lifestyle and Mea‘ai through Aquaponics) project helps Native Hawaiian families and communities to create aquaponic systems in their back yards.
Local and national journalists know FDM professor Andy Reilly is the one to consult about sartorial choices and Hawai'i fashion history. He's been interviewed for and quoted in several news stories recently, for Hawaii News Now and even Huffington Post, from everything about the origins of the rubber slipper to the potential mood-altering effects of clothing.
Many congratulations to Emeritus Professor Richard Criley (TPSS), who was recently awarded the IPPS Western Region’s most prestigious award at the organization’s annual banquet. The Curtis J. Alley Award of Merit is presented to a Western Region member who has made an outstanding contribution to the Society and to plant propagation and who is dedicated to the ideals of the Society.
Assistant research professor Andre Seale (HNFAS) is also a co-investigator in the University of Hawai‘i Sea Grant College Program, which has received nearly $1.4 million to establish a new aquaculture-focused collaborative program in Hawai‘i and the Pacific region and explore new aquaculture opportunities.
