In return, the students and attendees got a lesson in American country line dancing by an instructor. Every year, the technical college, which is Japan’s version of a community college, sends a delegation of students to PCC’s campuses to tour career-technical programs, mainly at Rock Creek and Cascade campuses. At Cascade, they learned about the Ophthalmic Medical Technology Program, and at Rock Creek students explored the farm operations and the Bioscience Technology Program.
