The financial future of the UH athletic department will be impacted in the coming weeks following last week’s official departures of ‘Ahahui Koa Anuenue leaders Vince Baldemor and Carol Gouveia.
Baldemor, who served as president of the athletic department’s fund-raising organization, completed his UH stint last week. He was hired as HPU’s executive director of athletics in November, but was allowed to remain at UH through the end of the fall semester.
Gouveia, who served as a director of the preferred-seating and parking programs, retired.
Money is power, and Koa Anuenue is largely responsible for getting the money.
