Robert Ono says his goodbyes

After 32 years teaching Chemistry at Pierce, Robert Ono will join the latest round of Pierce professors set to retire.


“My wife and I would like to spend more time traveling and pursuing a number of volunteer interests we have,” he said.


Among some of the hobbies he plans on pursuing after retirement, Ono plans to hit the golf course with his wife.  Traveling to foreign countries like Europe, Australia and Japan will also “be high on our lists of places to visit” he said.


Leaving teaching will not be an easy thing for Ono though. Coming to school every day and interacting with his students will be something he’ll miss dearly, he said. Saying goodbye to the faculty he’s gotten to know will also be a challenge.


Ono is glad to leave with a lack of regrets though.


“If I had to do it over again, I would probably do it exactly the same.  The opportunity to interact with many outstanding students and wonderful colleagues throughout the years has been a pleasure,” he said.
