Belmont alumnus Logan Snider, December 2014 graduate with a major in music performance (flute) and a minor in Japanese, was recently selected for the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme. JET is now in its 27th year and is aimed at promoting grass-roots international exchange between Japan and other nations.
The number of countries sending participants has risen over the years, as has the number of participants. Since JET began, there have been more than 60,000 participants from 63 countries. Snider was a member of Belmont’s Japan Travel Study in 2012 led by Drs. Cynthia Bisson and Marieta Velikova. Snider will join Belmont alumna Dianna Antenucci who is in her third year as a JET. So far, four Belmont students have received JET appointments.
