Three APSU Students heading to Japan through prestigious JET program

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Holly Bunner shouldn’t have fond memories of Japan. The last time she was there, the Austin Peay State University student spent four hours on a bus, then bicycled through the rain to a small noodle shop. After her meal, she took an awkward step on a small ledge outside the shop.

“Holly stepped on it in exactly the wrong way and broke her foot,” Dr. David Rands, APSU associate professor of history and director of the Asian Studies program, said. “So she’s had the experience of going to a Japanese doctor and getting a Japanese cast on her foot, and after all that, she still seems to like Japan.”

Austin Peay State University student Holly Bunner is one of three APSU students heading to Japan in August to take part in the Japanese Exchange and Teaching (JET) program.
