This year seven young women from each of the five Uniteds  applied for the 2017 BWA Student Exchange program to Japan.  All were well qualified and displayed good leadership skills.   We are proud to announce the two young women selected are Kiaria Nakamura of Hilo Betsuin and Brandi Yamamoto of Kapaa, Kauai. They will travel to Japan from July 11 – 22, 2017. The final selection by the SE Committee was determined using their written application, references and oral interviews, some via web ex. Congratulations!
