UH West O‘ahu Associate Professor Dr. Stefanie Wilson traveled to Hiroshima, Japan, representing the Rotary Club of Pearl Harbor, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the club’s sister partnership with the Rotary Club of Hiroshima Southeast. For the past 30 years, this relationship has strengthened the bonds of understanding, trust and mutual respect between the people of Japan and Hawai‘i. A conference was held in April in Hiroshima to further international understanding, promote world peace, friendship and fellowship.
 
The sister club agreement between the Rotary Club of Pearl Harbor and the Rotary Club of Hiroshima Southeast, formed 30 years ago, established a unique alliance for its proximity to the Pearl Harbor attack in Honolulu and ground zero of the atomic bombing in Hiroshima.
 
The Pearl Harbor Rotarians were introduced to the Mayor of Hiroshima, Matsui Kazumi, and visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park for a wreath laying ceremony. They planted a tree at the park symbolizing the bonding cooperation between the Rotary Club of Pearl Harbor and the Rotary Club of Hiroshima Southeast.
 
Dr. Stefanie Wilson is an associate professor of Business Administration at UH West O‘ahu. In addition to teaching, Wilson has always been fascinated with human intelligences and leadership. Her research and publication efforts expand on Howard Gardner’s “Theory of Multiple Intelligences” by providing new ways to think about leadership. Wilson also serves as a board member and advisor for the Rotary Club of Pearl Harbor.
