About Ohio’s 2016 Cherry Blossom Princess
The Ohio Society is proud to select Jasmine Wyatt as the 2016 Ohio Cherry Blossom Princess. Jasmine is a 2011 graduate of St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron and a 2015 graduate of Harvard University. She majored in government and minored in South Asian studies. She currently works as a Staff Assistant for Senator Richard Durbin (IL).
Since 1948, state and territorial societies, as well as the international embassy community, have selected accomplished young women for their academic achievement, exceptional poise and appearance, leadership, interest in social, civic, community and world affairs with a strong desire to serve others through community service, maturity and responsibility to represent their respective states as “Cherry Blossom Princess.” Over the course of a week, these young ladies have an opportunity to participate in National Cherry Blossom Festival activities, community service, and cultural exchange events. The week culminates in the selection of a Cherry Blossom Queen, who is invited by the Japan Cherry Blossom Association (JCBA) to visit Japan.
Our participation in the Princess Program was generously sponsored by State and Federal Communications.
