Twelve members currently serve the JICUF Board of Trustees. Delores Roeder, Junior Year Abroad student at ICU from 1960 to 1961 and the longest serving trustee, was interviewed by her colleague Anne Love.
Katie Cheshire is a one exchange student (one-year regular or OYR) who is receiving the JICUF scholarship for international students. We recently had the opportunity to ask her a few questions.
Tim Fraser was an exchange student at ICU in fall 2014. At the time, he was a junior student at Middlebury College, and since then he has graduated and returned to Japan as a Fulbright Fellow. During his time at ICU, Tim participated in Team Asunaro’s volunteer activities in Tohoku, which the JICUF sponsored with funds raised from alumni and friends after the Tohoku Earthquake of 2011. Tim kindly agreed to be interviewed by us.
Emily Kariya is a former OYR (’92-93) and an accomplished Japanese Language Teacher at Santa Monica High School in Southern California. She welcomed a combined ICU-JICUF team to her classes this past autumn as part of our September Admissions school visits. JICUF had the chance to follow up with her and learn about her own specific connections to Japan and ICU.
