On Tuesday, November 5th
, Greenbrier Christian Academy and Yokohama Jogakuin, a seventh through twelfth grade Christian school for girls located in Yokohama, Japan, crystalized our partnership in a ceremony which culminated in our becoming sister schools. While GCA has been blessed with a long standing relationship with YJG, this new dedication to each other will foster an ongoing commitment and educational partnership. Mr. Yutaka Kaneko, the Head of School; his wife, Mrs. Kazuko Kaneko; and Mr. Koichi Hirama, the Assistant Principal and Director of International Studies; came to the United States for this special service.
The ceremony was held in the Greenbrier Christian Academy auditorium in front of GCA's upper school student body. Seniors Rachel Owens and Klayton Inmon welcomed our honored guests in Japanese on behalf of the student body. The high school and middle school choirs, both led by choir director Mrs. Lynda Rushing, also sang during the program.
To formally recognize our connection as Sister Schools, Dr. White and Mr. Kaneko both signed an agreement committing to this honored relationship.
