Sunday, May 01 2011

In May, Mayor Won Chang-Mug visited the JCHS campus and the Virginia Tech Carilion Medical School and Research Institute among other sites in our home city of Roanoke, Virginia. Mayor Won leads Wonju, South Korea—a sister city of Roanoke, Virginia.

Wonju is the most populous city in Gangwon province, South Korea. The city is approximately 90 miles east of Seoul and is home to three major universities. Above, Mayor Won (right) receives a gift from JCHS President Dr. Nathaniel L. Bishop during his visit.

Thank you for visiting with us, Mayor Won, and please come back again soon!
