JET Alum Terry Vo named Arkansas Cherry Blossom Princess

JET alum and President of Music City JETAA Terry Vo (2007-09, Kumamoto-ken) has been named Arkansas’ Cherry Blossom Princess by the Arkansas State Society in Washington, D.C., and represented the state during the recent 99th National Cherry Blossom Festival, a major annual event in the nation’s capital.

Vo took part in the Cherry Blossom Princess Program, which ran from April 2-9, 2011. The Cherry Blossom Princess Program offers cultural and educational opportunity for young women from across the U.S. and around the world. They are selected by a state society or an embassy based on their leadership, academic achievements, interest in social, civic, community and world affairs. Over 3,000 women have participated in this program since 1948. Princess alumni include Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

The 2011 Cherry Blossom Princess Program included an array of activities and cultural events requiring the princesses to perform a variety of public relations and diplomatic duties during the week. All of the activities lead to the Grand Ball where the crowning of the U.S. Cherry Blossom Queen takes place and a princess will be selected by chance with the spin of the infamous Wheel of Fortune.

Vo was chosen by her princess class as Miss Congeniality at the Cherry Blossom Grand Ball and Sushi Reception.

Terry-san omedetou gozaimashita!
