Maui College chancellor to retire in October

Posted: Updated:

KAHULUI, Hawaii (AP) - Maui College's chancellor is retiring.

That means the University of Hawaii system will need to begin the process of finding a replacement for Clyde Sakamoto.

University officials say Sakamoto announced this week he plans to retire at the end of October.

He's led the Maui campus since 1991 and has served in the UH system for 41 years.

Under his leadership, Maui College's enrollment has increased 47 percent.

The university credits him with helping secure more than $13 million in rural development funds since 1997 and more than $147 million in extramural funds.
