People You Should Know in Gwangju…A Look Back

We have once again seen an influx into and out of our grand city. What better way to say hello and goodbye than by making sure that we are able to recognize outstanding members of our community. If you’ll recall from last week we talked about the Michael Simning Community Builders Award, which it is not too late to nominate someone for by clicking here.  So this week I thought we could look back at those that are on the committee.

First up we have Dr. Shin, the Executive Director of Gwangju International Center, or the GIC. His devotion to Gwangju and the GIC is truly spectacular, and we wouldn’t be able to do near the things that we can here without his unwavering support and assistance. He was interviewed back in October of 2015 just before the 2015 GIC Day. You can read that article here.

Next up is Tim Whitman. I’m not even sure what to say about him. He means so much to so many people here and around the world. His efforts with supporting the different organizations around Gwangju,  running The First Alleyway and teaching. Also, helping to ensure that we have International Tabletop Day here in Gwangju. Tim was a person you should know back in April of 2015, and you can check it out here.

Last is me. I’m honored to be among two such outstanding members of the Gwangju community, I myself was in the blog in August 0f 2015 and it can be found here.
