Inouye tells UH board he supports Greenwood
HONOLULU (AP) — U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye is showing his support for University of Hawaii President M.R.C. Greenwood in a letter to the school’s Board of Regents.
Greenwood has been the target of criticism ever since the university was scammed out of $200,000 by someone falsely claiming to represent the singer Stevie Wonder.
The board met Wednesday and approved the administration’s decision to give former athletic director Jim Donovan a communications position after the mishap.
Inouye’s letter to the board is dated Tuesday.
The letter says Greenwood is nationally well regarded in academia and research. He told the board he’s had “a particularly successful” partnership with the university under Greenwood in attracting investments for the school in astronomy, oceans and other fields.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser first published the letter on its website.
