GOVERNOR ARIYOSHI KICKS-OFF THE NISEI VETERANS MEMORIAL CENTER “LEADERSHIP SERIES”
Governor George Ariyoshi will kick-off the Nisei Veterans Memorial Center’s (NVMC) new Leadership Series on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 1:30pm at the Kahili Golf Course Nahele Ballroom. The event is $35.00 per person and includes light refreshments. Call 244-6862 or visit nvmc.org for tickets.
The Honorable George Ariyoshi served as the state’s third Governor. He was the first Asian American to be elected governor of a state in the U.S and holds the record as the longest-serving governor in Hawaii (1974-1986). As WWII drew to a close, Ariyoshi served as an interpreter in the Military Intelligence Service (MIS).
Governor Ariyoshi will be speaking on leadership and the Nisei values that continue to be relevant in today’s world.
“The mission of the NVMC is to inspire people to find the Hero in themselves and I cannot think of a better person to kick-off this series than Governor Ariyoshi. From being born to immigrant parents, to his time as an interpreter in the MIS during WWII, to leading our state, his journey is an inspiring one” said Deidre Tegarden, Executive Director of the NVMC.
The NVMC Leadership Series will feature guest speakers throughout 2018.
