Former Gov. George Ariyoshi was inducted into the Hawai‘i State Aloha Order of Merit –– one of the state’s highest honors –– on April 29, in the Senate chambers of the State Capitol.

In a press release from the Office of the Governor, it states, “The Aloha Order of Merit was established in 1993 by the Hawai‘i State Legislature to honor individuals who have distinguished themselves nationally and/or internationally in their field, who have contributed to the attainment of statehood, devoted themselves to the betterment of the state, and provided extraordinary service to the state.”
