Ikegami leads successful effort to raise funds for Japan reconstruction
As many of you know, Pam Ikegami launched the Paper Cranes for Japan event in order to raise money to support the long-term reconstruction efforts in Northern Japan. With her students, the Korean Culture Club, and residents of Fairchild Hall, she collected 2,100 paper cranes.
Over 600 of them were folded during the 90-minute event that Pam led at the MUB. Thanks to Pam’s hard work and leadership, the UNH community raised $4,200 for Architecture for Humanity.
My sincerest thanks and congratulations to Pam for this amazing accomplishment. Seeing the boxes of cranes in her office was truly inspirational and a reminder of how fortunate we are to have such wonderful colleagues.
Pam Ikegami teaches Japanese in the UNH Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures. Piero Garofalo, associate professor of Italian, is chairman of that department.
