Dreams do come true! We ‘officially’ opened the New East Building thanks to the support of Governor Ohmura and Mayor Kawamura, plus a small gathering of supporters and staff. There were brief speeches from Mr. Parr, Governor Ohmura, and Mayor Kawamura, followed by the ribbon-cutting ceremony. A number of representatives from the Board of Trustees, the Fundraising Committee, and the school joined in to cut the ribbon, ushering in a new era for NIS! After the ceremony the guests moved into the new East Building Lobby to view the donor board and to have a tour. The ceremony and tour were broadcast live on Facebook for all our supporters from around the community (and the world!) to view. We are truly grateful to all who have made this vision possible and we are excited to start the 20-21 school year with this amazing new addition to the NIS campus!
We were also featured in a segment of the evening news on the day of the opening. Click HERE to see the segmant write up and video (in Japanese)
