On October 8, UHAA held its annual Golden and Silver Scholars Reunion to commemorate the golden anniversary of the Classes of 1964 and 1965, along with the silver anniversary of the Class of 1990.
Honorees and their guests enjoyed connecting with old classmates and forming new friendships, and were given a tour of UH Mānoa Kennedy Theatre followed by a dance concert, “Fall Footholds: IN SYNC, OUT OF TIME.” Emcee for the event was UHAA President Ken Hayashida (BS ’83), and the guest speaker was Peter Arnade, dean of the College of Arts & Humanities. Dean Arnade presented the Golden Scholars with gold medallions and gave pins to Silver Scholars to commemorate their golden and silver anniversaries.
To celebrate the inaugural class of Silver Scholars, guests were eligible to win a round trip to Hollywood, which included complimentary airfare along with a two-night stay at the W Hollywood. Other prizes included a celebratory wine basket and a UHAA prize pack.
Thank you to the Golden and Silver Scholars who were able to attend this year's event. We would like to extend our congratulations to all of the systemwide Golden and Silver Scholars on reaching this significant milestone.
