Japanese Ornament on Display

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

A miniature version of a Boy’s Day decoration from Japan will be on display in the lobby of the Oesterle Library through the Homecoming Weekend. Boys’ Day, now called Children’s Day, is a national holiday that is celebrated every May 5th in Japan. The holiday is an opportunity to show respect for all children and to celebrate their happiness and unique personalities.

The ornament is a gift from Shige Masaki ’54 Nagamura, a North Central College Alumnus. Mrs. Nagamura traveled to the United States to attend NCC to study math and French.

Mrs. Nagamura has established the Shige Masaki Nagamura Endowed Scholarship to support outstanding students from Japan attending North Central College.
