For the third time in four years, HPU Dean of the College of Professional Studies, Dr. Gordon Jones, has been honored by the Pacific Technology Foundation and the Technology News Network.
Jones was inducted into the state of Hawai‘i Technology Hall of Fame at the 6th Annual Flavors of Technology Event Oct. 22 at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel, joining past honorees from Oceanit, Hawai‘i Biotech, and Sony Hawai‘i. Jones was named Technology Educator of the Year in 2004 and was listed among Hawai‘i’s Top High-Tech Leaders in 2003.

Jones was recognized for his life’s work in Hawai‘i’s technology industry, from establishing HPU’s College of Professional Studies and its state-of-the-art academic programs, to volunteering his time and expertise for our island community’s benefit, to developing strategies for our local governments.

“ To be successful in the 21st century, organizations will need leaders who understand the power of modern technology,” said Jones. “Our program is designed to create individuals who understand how technology can make the difference between those organizations that continue to grow, learn, and compete as opposed to those that wait to react and suffer the consequences.”

Also at this year’s event, HPU computer science Professor Dr. Dolly Samson, who has been in the computer science field for more than 30 years, was named to Hawai‘i’s Top 50 High-Tech Leaders.

“ For me, my students are my VIPs,” said Samson. “After graduating from HPU, they are ready to enter a profession that is rewarding and engaging. I have found opportunities in the Hawai‘i high-tech community to help create a vital environment that attracts young, talented professionals, and I am proud to be part of this community.”
