    Nearly 300 Yokosuka Elementary Students Complete Pilot Japanese Language School

    YOKOSUKA, Japan (June 3, 2019) – Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka (CFAY) Capt. Jeffrey Kim poses for a photograph with LaVerne Outen, Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Pacific East District Superintendent, Director Kohei Akiyama of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) American Exchange Division and a MOFA staff member at a ceremony celebrating more than 290 students completing a year-long Japanese language school at the Sullivans School onboard the installation, June 3. The pilot Japanese Language School at The Sullivans and neighboring Ikego Elementary School is a partnership between DoDEA and MOFA that was developed by Capt. Kim during his tenure as a Mansfield Fellow prior to taking command of the Yokosuka base. The year-long program was taught after school three days a week by Japanese teachers and provided free Japanese language education to DoDEA students in kindergarten through second grade. CFAY provides, maintains, and operates base facilities and services in support of the U.S. 7th Fleet's forward-deployed naval forces, 71 tenant commands, and more than 27,000 military and civilian personnel and their families.
