Governor David Ige ('79, '85) appointed Scott Glenn ('09) as director of the state Office of Environmental Quality Control.
Glenn will replace former Rep. Jessica Wooley, whose term ended June 30. Wooley had been serving on monthly basis since Ige took office in January. Glenn is leaving his position as environmental planner at Cardno, an environmental engineering firm, where he has worked since 2010.
Glenn served as vice chair and past chair of the Sierra Club Hawai‘i Chapter and holds the same positions on the State Environmental Council. He is also the co-founder and president of Better Block Hawaiʻi, a non-profit dedicated to exploring collaborative, innovative approaches to improving urban livability.
Glenn earned a BA in philosophy and classical archaeology from the University of Evansville and a master of urban and regional planning from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners.
