By Star-Advertiser Staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:46 p.m. HST, Jul 03, 2011

Judith Pyle, a business executive and Honolulu resident, recently established a $2 million endowment for the dean’s position at the UH-Manoa Hawaiinuiakea School of Hawaiian Knowledge.

“It takes a very special person, with insight and a spirit of generosity, to make such a gracious endowment,” said Maenette Benham, dean of the school. 

Benham will be able to use the funds for retaining and recruiting faculty, supporting research and furthering the school’s mission. 

Pyle, who is a University of Hawaii Foundation board trustee, said she appreciates the rich culture of Hawaii. 

“As a trustee on the UH Foundation board, I know the value philanthropy brings to our university, our students and our future,” Pyle said. 

Pyle is currently the president of Judith Dion Pyle & Associates in Wisconsin and travels occasionally to oversee the business. Pyle is also a board member for the Contemporary Museum in Honolulu.
