It is with great pleasure that I announce that TCNJ 2015 Alumni William Westerman has been selected for the 2016 JET Program for this year’s international competition. Congratulations to William and his mentors Dr. Holly Didi-Ogren and Ms. Gruenberg.
JET Program recipients are chosen as a result of a long and highly selective international process. JET selects exceptional recently graduated students to be Assistant Language Teachers. The JET Program awardees first apply, then selected candidates are
interviewed at Japanese embassies before being recommended for award status. William will attend a pre-departure program in Washington, DC, then an orientation Tokyo in July before starting his one year program in August. William graduated from TCNJ in 2015 with self-designed major combining English with Japanese, International Studies, and Linguistics.
