KCC names Louise Pagotto as interim chancellor

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Kapiolani Community College has a new interim chancellor, Louise Pagotto.

The University of Hawaii's Board of Regents approved the appointment of Pagotto on Friday to assume the position after chancellor Leon Richards retired earlier this year.

Pagotto has been with KCC since 1989 working at various positions including as an English teacher, department chair and assistant dean. She was the vice chancellor for academic affairs for 16 years before being appointed interim chancellor.

Pagotto will serve as the interim chancellor until a national search for a permanent chancellor is completed.
