Building a state of the art campus now ensures that Nagoya can continue to count on NIS to support the city’s global industries, attract new business to the region and produce future generations of globally minded students ready to embrace the opportunities that the future holds for Nagoya.

Why are you supporting the project?


As the NIS Board Chair, as a parent, and as a longtime member of Nagoya’s international community, I’m so proud of our school. Nagoya International School delivers a truly incredible, educational experience – the finest in Nagoya certainly, and one that stacks up well against larger international schools throughout Japan & Asia. Why would we not build first class facilities that support & enhance the first class learning that is taking place on our campus?

 

Why do you think this project is important for Nagoya?


Nagoya has grown so much over the years as an international city, but sits at a crossroad as the city looks towards the future. Our school has played a vital role for the city over the past 50 years as Nagoya’s industries globalized, and today NIS continues to be as important as ever before. Building a state of the art campus now ensures that Nagoya can continue to count on NIS to support the city’s global industries, attract new business to the region and produce future generations of globally minded students ready to embrace the opportunities that the future holds for Nagoya.

 

As a lead donor, what is your hope for other corporations?


My hope is a simple one. The Vision 2020 Project is necessary for our school to continue to deliver a world class education to the global students of Nagoya now and into the future. Both users of the school as well as members of the Nagoya business community that benefit from NIS need to join together, donate, and make the vision a reality.
