2 UH faculty members receive career recognition

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:44 p.m. HST, Dec 01, 2013

A pair of distinguished University of Hawaii leaders were recognized last week with honors that acknowledged their lifetime contributions to their fields.

Denise Antolini, associate dean of UH's William S. Richardson School of Law, received the 2013 John Kelly Lifetime Achievement Award from the Oahu Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation.

Antolini, who joined the law school in 1996, directs the school's environmental law program and has taught environmental law and litigation, ocean and coastal law, torts, and legal writing. In addition, Antolini helped to found the North Shore Community Land Trust and Malama Pupukea-Waimea and has participated on numerous community and government committees. 

Donald Hall, former director of the UH Institute for Astronomy, was named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science on the basis of his "distinguished contributions to the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomy at the University of Hawaii and on Mauna Kea, and infrared telescope, instrument and sensor technology."

A former deputy director of the Space Telescope Science Institute, Hall served as director of the Institute for Astronomy from 1984 to 1997 and continues to work as an astronomer with the institute. His current work involves developing infrared detector arrays for astronomical instruments mounted on telescopes on the ground and in space.

Hall is one of 388 new fellows elected by their AAAS peers.

Congrats to both. Thank you for your time and effort! In this day of Presidents having 3 year "careers" at UH, and then ripping us all off for a lifetime, this is very refreshing.

Mahalo, Prof Hall - you grace our university and state and exemplify the great work professors are capable of achieving. You rose above the social, cultural and economic madness and excelled. As for the other person, its ridiculous to put her in the same category - must be the politically correct portion of the matter?
