Who else besides Jeff and Susan has been to Japan on this program?

My wonderful former student who is now teaching in the school where I
taught him asked me for guidance in applying for the program next year.
  Would one of you who has been selected be willing to give him a few
minutes of guidance. I have advised him to beef up his contribution to
the art education community outside the local community where he has
been concentrating his efforts.

I can assure you he does his own work, is not a "needy" person who will
bug you. I do not know how to guide him so I am appealing to you for

Thanks for any guidance you can give him.
