CTAHR's 29th Annual Awards Banquet on May 5, 2017 honored Eric Tanouye, left, with the 2017 Ka Lei Hano Award and Dr. Ernest J. Harris with the 2017 Outstanding Alumnus Award. Tanouye is president and general manager of Hilo-based Green Point Nurseries, founder of Hawai‘i Floriculture and Nursery Association and a strong supporter of the college. Harris is a CTAHR PhD graduate in entomology who developed successful controls for fruit fly pests as a USDA research scientist.

“Both men apply intelligence, creativity and commitment to addressing the challenges facing agriculture in the Islands,” said Rachel Novotny, interim dean of the college. “Their innovative contributions have had profound and lasting impacts on the industry in Hawai‘i.”
