For three decades, the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources has closed the academic year by honoring the remarkable people—supporters, alumni, students, faculty, and staff—who make this place so special. It is an opportunity to greet old friends, make new connections, and recognize the many ways CTAHR educates and serves people of Hawai‘i and beyond with integrity and excellence.

In 2018, CTAHR recognized Glenn Muranaka, left, with the Ka Lei Hano Award and Gerald Santo as CTAHR’s Outstanding Alumnus. As president and general manager of Meadow Gold Dairies, Mr. Muranaka fostered local agribusiness and supported healthy community activities. Dr. Santo applied his research acumen to challenging pest problems in the Pacific Northwest. See more photos from the 2018 banquet.
