Senator Lisa Murkowski's Visit
On March 28, 2013, Senator Lisa Murkowski visited with Montgomery Dickson Center staff Hiroko Harada and Steven Wilson, Chancellor Tom Case, and others to learn about what UAA is doing to help the Japanese people in Rikuzentakata which was devastated by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami. In January 2013, Senator Lisa Murkowski visited several sites in Japan to see changes brought about by the earthquake and tsunami. Topics discussed also included ways of carrying on Monty Dickson's legacy not only in Alaska but also in Rikuzentakata, Japan. The Monty Dickson Center would like to thank Senator Lisa Murkowski for her concern and involvement in the disaster areas in Japan.
