New Residence Hall Named for Physics Professor and Wife

(From left) Tamao Tanaka, Tim Tanaka and Norico Tanaka-Wada are presented a plaque in honor of their parents, Sumiko and Tomoyasu Tanaka. Their plaque – one of which was presented to the family and another that will be displayed in Tanaka Hall – included a watercolor painting of cherry blossoms that was created by Ohio University Executive Vice President and Provost Pam Benoit. Norico Tanaka-Wada noted that the family requested that their plaque highlight their parents’ contribution to the OHIO-Chubu University relationship as reflected through the cherry blossom. “The wonderful thing about the cherry blossoms is that their beauty is fleeting,” said Norico Tanaka-Wada. “So only one week of the whole year is their beauty able to be appreciated, but now we have these beautiful pictures of the cherry blossoms that students can enjoy all year long.” Photo by Jasmine Beaubien
