Augustana Grads to Discuss Experiences in Japan Following Earthquake

Two Augustana graduates who are teaching English in Japan will discuss their experiences teaching abroad, the Japanese culture and what life is like following last month's catastrophic 8.9-magnitude earthquake that left thousands dead and unleashed a massive tsunami which swept walls of water across rice fields and engulfed entire towns.

Kimberly Johnson, class of 2010 and a native of Sioux Falls, teaches in Hokkaido, Japan, and Miriam Rollason, also class of 2010 and a native of Isabel, S.D., teaches in Himeji, Japan. Both are teaching through the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program.

The discussion will begin at 6 p.m. on Monday, May 2, in the 3-in-1 room, located inside Augustana’s Morrison Commons.

The event is free and open to the public.
