Kagawa Gov. Bids JETs Farewell

Kagawa prefectural governor Takeki Manabe bade farewell Tuesday to 28 JETs from five countries who recently completed their contracts in the region, according to the Shikoku News. "Through English education, you taught our children about the outside world. I hope you will continue to be active in many fields," he said before presenting each JET with an olive medallion. One American JET, who worked for five years at the Tosan Board of Education, said "Kagawa is the smallest prefecture in Japan, but it has broadened my horizons. I'll always remember and treasure the last five years." The governor also presented a thank-you letter and mementoes to American David Gotsill and Briton Samuel Rosen, who worked in international relations for the last three years.
