After 24 years of dedicated and wonderful service to Berklee, Joanne Whitaker will be leaving us at the end of October and returning to her native Hawaii. There she will serve as Chief of Staff to the President of Kapiolani Community College in Honolulu. It will be difficult to fill her estimable shoes.
We appreciate not only her many years of excellent work as teacher and staff leader, but of course her signature laugh, generous spirit, and constant good humor. We will miss her. Please join us in wishing her well.
Roger H. Brown
President, Berklee College of Music
