their students and schools.
This is the second consecutive year Dr. Jones

50 of the top executives and leaders in the state of Hawai‘i
who have made the most significant positive impact on the industries
of business, technology, education, and community service in

to providing valuable technical, educational, and moral support
for his students, and earning respect and recognition of his
colleagues in education and the community.

Resource Management, as well as the Master of Science in Information
Systems. He had a major role in the development of the Frear
Center, HPU’s newest high-technology teaching and learning
facility, which opened in August 2003, serving as the principal
