  • 2. Ua Ao Hawai‘iWords by Larry Kimura Chant melody by Kalena Silva Kau e ka wena o ke ao i ka lani The announcement of dawn appears as a glowing streak upon the heavens, He wekeweke i ka pö pilipuka It is a narrow opening in the darkness heralding the day, He ‘elele o ka poniponi hikina It is a messenger of purple glimmer from the east. Kau ke kähe‘a wana‘ao i ka ‘äla‘apapa Streaks of red stain long cloud formations, La‘i ana i luna o ke kükulu o ka lani lä Reposing serenely upon the pillars holding up the heavens; ‘O ka‘u ia e huli alo nei i ka ulu ë I turn to gaze upon this, focusing on growth and the rising of a new day, ‘Ae, ua ao ë. Yes, day has arrived. Hö mai lä kö mälamalama Bestow upon us your radiant light I ka honua nei i ka mauli ola Here upon the earth, filled with the spirit of life. Ua ao Hawai‘i ke ‘ölino nei Hawai‘i is in the brightness of day, it shines, brilliant Mai ka pi‘ina a ka welona a ka lä From its boundaries from the east to the west. Kähiko ‘ia i ka ‘ike manomano It wears as its finery a myriad of knowledge, Ka ‘ike köli‘u mai o kikilo mai Of deep insight from the depths of antiquity. ‘O ka‘u nö ia ‘o ka pülama My sole duty is to embrace and to cherish, A pa‘a ma ka ipu o ka ‘ike ë. So it may be firm in the repositories of enlightenment. ‘Ae, ua ao ë. Yes, day has arrived. He mele no Hawai‘i ua ao. This is a poem for Hawai‘i which has seen the light of day.

  • 5. Keynote AddressJohn F. “Jack” Gifford, founder and former CEO of Maxim Integrated Products and Advanced Micro Devices, is one of the“founding fathers” of the analog microchip industry. He earned a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering in 1963 from theUniversity of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), which he attended on a baseball scholarship, and where he maintains close ties. Hewas elected to UCLA’s baseball hall of fame in 1990, taking his place alongside the likes of Jackie Robinson, Dr. Bobby Brown, KennyWashington, Mike Gallego, Tim Leary, Eric Karros, Todd Zeile and Don Slaught. He was also named 1991 Alumnus of the Year forthe school’s College of Engineering, which he addressed as commencement speaker in 1992.Mr. Gifford entered the semiconductor industry in 1964 when he went to work for Fairchild Semiconductor and became thecompany’s first Director of Analog Products. He co-founded Advanced Micro Devices in 1969 and remained as vice president ofmarketing and planning until leaving the company to become Senior Vice President, then President and CEO of Intersil, Inc., whichwas later acquired by General Electric (GE). As Senior Vice President, he was instrumental in the company’s pioneering developmentof low-power CMOS for analog applications. Mr. Gifford founded Maxim Integrated Products in 1983 with a vision of providinghigh-quality analog and mixed-signal engineering solutions for the technology industry. From its inception, he promoted a cultureof high expectations and the concept that innovative product development could be scheduled and was not a random event. Maximis now a worldwide leader in the design, development, and manufacture of analog, mixed signal, high frequency, and digital circuits.Mr. Giffords industry achievements earned him numerous awards including CEO of the Year by Electronic Business Magazine in2001 and America’s Best Semiconductor Industry CEO by Institutional Investor Magazine in 2005.Mr. Gifford’s agricultural upbringing and avid interest in technology also led him to establish businesses outside the semiconductorindustry. He embarked on a farming career in 1973 and in 10 years became one of the larger tomato growers in Northern California.The founder and President of businesses that include J. Leal Farms and Enslie Industries, Gifford was nominated for NationalEntrepreneur of the Year by Arthur Young in 1988.Active in numerous scholastic and charitable activities involving children and education, Mr. Gifford has contributed to theUniversity of California Hall of Science Lower Education Program, The Betty Kanuha Foundation and is a co-founder of the East PaloAlto Education and Tennis Foundation (EPATT). His background in science and athletics has convinced him that youth exposed toathletics will succeed in life if education is properly emphasized. This led him to establish Hawai`i’s Kalaeiki Baseball Youth Clinicfive years ago, which offers a free four day clinic annually, featuring volunteer coaches from the major leagues and eight Division IUniversities including UCLA, Stanford and Hawai`i. The overall aim of these efforts is to focus our youth on the value of Math andEnglish education.At todays ceremony, Mr. Gifford will be awarded an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree. This award recognizes hisdistinguished reputation as a pioneer in the electronics industry and his public service in support of education programs for youth. Student AddressLinda Voong, an English and Political Science major, represents the class of 2007 as Student Speaker. Born in San Jose, California,Ms. Voong moved to Hawai`i at the age of four. She attended Hilo Union, Hilo Intermediate and Hilo High School before enrolling atUH Hilo.Ms. Voongs academic achievements while pursuing a double major have earned her numerous awards including Presidential andKiwanis Scholarships. She spent four months in Washington D.C., as an intern at the office of U.S. Senator Daniel K. Akaka. Activein campus affairs, she spent two years with the Model United Nations as a member, served as secretary and president of the PoliticalScience Association, and was a Junior Kiwanis member.When Ms. Voong and her sister Elaine receive their degrees, it will mark an important family milestone. The daughters of Chineseimmigrants who fled their homeland to escape the war in Indochina, they represent their familys first generation to attend andgraduate from college. Growing up, they spoke only Cantonese and did not begin to learn English until entering elementary school.Ms. Voongs address will acknowledge the contributions UH Hilos faculty and staff along with the Hilo community have made to thegraduating class. She urges her classmates to find ways to contribute as alumni. "I want to encourage the graduates to remain hereor at least come back at some point to contribute to the next graduating class and community as previous graduates have done," shesaid.Voong hopes to become an attorney. She has worked for the past three years at the law office of Hilo attorney Douglas Halsted. Herpost graduation plans include working for the next year, before applying for admission to law school in Fall 2008.

Crowell Erica Alisa Godoy Pansy May Lindo-Moulds Tamara S. Smith Academic RegaliaThe academic costume worn by faculty during commencement comes from an old tradition dating from the Middle Ages.At that time all students were clerics. Academic regalia was worn to keep students warm as well as to identify the religiousorder to which the student belonged.In America, academic costumes were established based on the intercollegiate code of 1895. Each aspect of the costume, suchas gown color, mortarboard tassel, and sleeve shape, indicate something about the wearer and the highest degree received.Most gowns are black, but some schools use brightly colored gowns. The color of the tassel indicates the highest degreeearned by the wearer; a doctor’s cap frequently bears a tassel of gold. Sleeves that are pointed are worn by holders of abachelor’s degree, oblong sleeves by holders of master’s degrees, and bell‐shaped sleeves indicate the wearer holds a doctorateor specialist degree. The doctor is distinguished by the three bars that adorn the sleeves of the gown.The brightly colored hoods are the outstanding feature of the academic costume. They represent both the field of study andthe university from which the degree was earned, as represented by the colors of both the border and the lining.Here at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, we also continue the tradition of marching in academic regalia. Indeed, the colorfulprocession of faculty is marked by distinctive caps and gowns from universities worldwide. Similarly, the color of the tasselworn by today’s graduation candidates reflect their major.Maize.............................................

The Star-Spangled BannerPoem by Francis Scott Key Music by John Stafford SmithOh, say, can you see by the dawn’s early lightWhat so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.Oh, say, does that Star-Spangled Banner yet waveO’er the land of the free and the home of the brave? Hawai‘i Pono‘iMusic by Henri Berger Lyrics by David KaläkauaHawai‘i pono‘ï Hawai‘i’s very own,Nänä i kou mö‘ï Look to your sovereign lord,Ka lani ali‘i Your chief that is heaven-born,Ke ali‘i. Who is your king. Hui: Makua lani ë Protector heaven-sent, Kamehameha ë Kamehameha great, Na käua e pale To vanquish every foe Me ka ihe. With conquering spear.Hawai‘i pono‘ï People of Hawai‘i’s land,Nänä i nä ali‘i Look to your native chiefs,Nä pua muli kou Your sole surviving lords,Nä pöki‘i. The nation’s pride.Hawai‘i pono‘ï People of Hawaiian stock,E ka lähui ë My nation ever dear,‘O käu hana nui With loins begirt for workE ui ë. Strive with your might.
