HONOLULU– Chaminade University will induct Jean E. Rolles, MSJBA ’93 and Lawrence K.W. Tseu, DDS into the Silversword Hall of Fame at its seventh annual intercollegiate athletics gala. The gala event takes place on Thursday, February 19, 2015, starting at 6:00 p.m. in the Ala Moana Beach Hotel (Hibiscus Ballroom). Also on hand at the event will be former Australian Olympian beach volleyball player and now motivational speaker, Annette Lynch as keynote speaker.
Jean E. Rolles is a current Board of Regents member and chair of the Intercollegiate Athletics subcommittee for Chaminade University. In August 2014, Rolles was recognized for her generous contribution to the renovations of the Carlson Fitness Center Locker Room and Facilities.

His $1 million capital gift enabled the construction of Chaminade University’s School of Nursing state-of-the-art facility, named Dr. Lawrence K.W. and Mrs. BoHing Chan Tseu Center for Nursing. His gift provided the needed private funding to secure essential government funding from the Economic Development Administration (U.S. Department of Commerce).

They are role models for our students, and have built a strong reputation throughout the Hawaii community by thinking outside the box and giving back,” said Chaminade University President, Bro.
