A Washougal senior citizen recently provided information about Japan to local students based on his personal experiences.
Wendell Heim, 87, was a guest speaker in the Japanese class at Washougal High School.
The class is taught by Fuchigami Parker.
“He is a great man who cares about a multicultural education for teens,” she said.
Heim served in the U.S. Army from February 1944 to January 1965. During World War II, he was in India and Northern Burma.
