The Ehime Prefectural Government presented certificates of appreciation during a memorial service Sunday to local students for maintaining a monument dedicated to nine Japanese killed when their fisheries training ship was struck by a submarine off Oahu two years ago.

The certificates were given to students of St. Louis School and Iolani School in Honolulu who have volunteered to clean the monument built at Kaka’ako Waterfront Park.
