KAHULUI, Hawaii (AP) - A man who grew up on Maui has been tapped as the new chancellor at the University of Hawaii-Maui College.

The Maui News reports the University of Hawaii Board of Regents named Lui Hokoana on Thursday.

Hokoana will take over Dec. 1, a day after longtime Chancellor Clyde Sakamoto retires.

Hokoana, who will make just over $152,000 a year, is currently vice chancellor for student affairs at the University of Hawaii-West Oahu.
