Yoko Shigemi (’16) and her husband, Akihiko, moved to the United States from Yamaguchi, Japan, almost 20 years ago, so he could attend the School of Divinity at Gardner-Webb University. “He had graduated from seminary in Japan and had experience as a pastor in Japan,” Shigemi related. “We arrived with two suitcases, bags and our son, Aisaku, who had just turned 3.”
