Friends of Jimmy Borges establish UH music scholarship in his name

Press Release Header

 

HONOLULU, HI – Friends of local jazz vocalist Jimmy Borges have raised more than $300,000 for a vocal music scholarship fund bearing his name at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. The needs-based scholarship will benefit Hawaii high school graduates.

 

Borges, 80, is battling cancer.

Borges is thrilled with this legacy fund and wants the vocal music scholarship to encourage Hawaii teens to pursue their dreams, just as he has done during his successful 60-year music career. “There’s no such thing as a stop sign,” Borges said. “Just speed bumps.”

 

A team of the entertainer’s friends raised the scholarship money in less than a month:

 

• Robert Clarke, a cancer survivor and retired chief of Hawaiian Electric Industries (HEI)
• Walter A. Dods Jr., Matson Chairman and retired First Hawaiian Bank CEO and Chairman
• Leslie Wilcox, PBS Hawaii President and CEO

 

Contributions are still being accepted by Malia Peters at the UH Foundation: malia.peters@uhfoundation.org

 

About 50 scholarship donors were treated to a special concert by Borges last week at PBS Hawaii. The singer candidly explained his situation: a recurrence of cancer has migrated from his liver to his lungs. He does not expect to survive.

 

The footage will be used in an upcoming TV presentation, Jimmy Borges: Faced It All, scheduled to premiere at 8:00 pm on Thursday, January 21 on PBS Hawaii.

Designing for You

Leslie Wilcox, President and CEO of PBS HawaiiResponsive design. That’s the term for the way we’ve rebuilt our PBS Hawaii web presence.

 

Launched last month, the new website at PBSHawaii.org reformats and adjusts to suit the device that you’re using to access it. You can go from your desktop computer monitor to your tablet to your smartphone without laboring to enjoy the material. No need to laboriously pan and scroll to see the full information and images.

 

“This is so much easier for our viewers to use, and there’s more efficiency for our staff in updating content,” says Liberty Peralta, who oversaw development of the new website. It was designed for us locally by Ikayzo, a creative agency and software development firm.

 

PBS Hawaii webmaster Brian Bueza notes that the website also brings users far more video, and lush photos and graphics. “It looks and feels more like television, while also being interactive.”

 

The new responsive format of the PBS Hawaii website allows it to adapt to multiple platforms and devices.

Meanwhile, a very different kind of responsive design will be evident as construction continues on our NEW HOME at Nimitz Highway and Sand Island Access Road.

 

Our architect, Sheryl Seaman of Group 70 International, has designed a comfortable gathering place that’s perfect for our role as a statewide connector and convener at The Clarence T.C. Ching Campus.

 

Our NEW HOME building, under construction on Sand Island Access Road, was also designed with public use in mind.

It’ll enable the flexibility that people want for meetings in the 21st century, offering a pleasant environment with a lot of natural light, open spaces, reconfigurable seating and easy access to technology. Where acoustical privacy is important, conference rooms will have glass walls with a bit of artistic opaqueness. Our various departments (programming, local content production, communications, etc.) will not be a warren of cubicles and private offices; they’ll be “coves,” geared to a team approach. The overall effect will be one of openness, transparency and collaboration.

 

With gratitude,
