In the fall of 2019, our community lost one of our JDLI children, Owen Klinger. Owen was a 2019 graduate of our program and beloved among his classmates, teachers and community. Appropriately, the kanji for Owen's name in Japanese means to support and lift others up. In his honor, beginning in the spring of 2020, Oya No Kai will award a scholarship to a JDLI graduating senior who embodies Owen's love of helping others.
Please consider making a donation to celebrate Owen's life and honor his legacy.
