Advertiser Staff

Former Board of Education member Noemi Pendleton has been appointed to serve as the executive director of the state Office on Aging.

She will start her new position Aug. 20.

"Noemi's broad experience in both government and the private sector, and her active leadership in the community will benefit our Executive Office on Aging," said Governor Linda Lingle, in a news release.

Pendleton is currently with Central Pacific Home Loans, where she educates senior citizens about reverse mortgages. She previously served as executive assistant to the director and deputy director of Pacific Air Forces Security Forces at Hickam Air Force Base.

She was elected to the Board of Education in November 1996, and served a four-year term as an O'ahu-at-large member.

The Office on Aging funds support services for seniors and caregivers statewide, and also administers federally-funded programs that provide Medicare and health insurance counseling, Medicare and Medicaid fraud prevention education, and advocacy for residents of licensed care facilities.
