March 22, 2017
Alliance, OH — The University of Mount Union is pleased to welcome the eighth group of Hiroshima Jokakuin High School students visiting campus to share their message of peace from Monday, March 27 through Sunday, April 2.
There is a long and prosperous relationship between Mount Union and Hiroshima Jogakuin High School, a girls’ academy founded by a female Methodist missionary before WWII. During their time in Alliance, these students will be visiting area schools and civic organizations sharing a message about peace and educating audiences on Japanese culture. We are honored to host the group of exceptional young women during Women’s History Month.
A Peace and Culture presentation is scheduled for Thursday, March 30 at 4:15 p.m. in the Newbold Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center and is free and open to the entire campus community. Light refreshments will be served. We invite you to welcome the students to Mount Union when you see them on campus!
