The Japanese section congratulates the recipients of the 2012 Kinyo Prize for Excellence in Japanese. The Kinyo Prize was established through the generous support of Mr. Kazuo Nakamura of Kinyo Virginia, Inc.

This year’s recipients are: in fourth year, David Ranzini; in third year, Seulhee Lee; in second year, Amanda Schiano di Cola; and, in first year, Luis Madrid. All four have distinguished themselves by their diligence and their accomplishment over the course of the year. おめでとう!
