New Assistants helping The Tag Project!!

The Tag Project now has four part time assistants working for us!! I am pleased to introduce Lindsey Nitake, Kaity Sakurai, Jean Saito, and Jon Endralin. All are students at San Diego State University: Lindsey and Kaity are members of the brand new Nikkei Student Group at SDSU. Jon is a member of the SDSU Asian Pacific Student Association. Jean Saito is a first year graduate student from New Orleans.

They will be working very hard to coordinate work assignments for the Tag Project volunteers, as well as working on the tags so that we can finish them by November 31!!

Thank you to Tennessee Technological University for hosting The Tag Project!!

The Tag Project traveled to Cookeville, Tennessee at the invitation of Professors Kimberly Winkle and Graham Campbell. Kim teaches Art 1010 Two-Dimensional Design at Tennessee Tech, and Graham teaches Art 2910 Intro to Wood At TTU's satellite campus, the Appalachian Center for Crafts.

The finished writing THE LAST of the tags from Topaz and Rohwer!!! And I mean, the LAST OF THE TAGS, period! Yes, the tags are all written for all ten camps, and we are still needing to stamp some numbers and age them but its a huge milestone for the Tag Project.

The folks in Tennessee were wonderful hosts, and I was fortunate to be there during such beautiful weather near Center Hill Lake!!

Many thanks to Kim and Graham for helping to make this happen!!
