JAIHO Sporting Event

This annual event is intended to provide a sports venue to promote international awareness and understanding between Western and Macomb High School students and to engage the community. Participants will come from the local and international communities of both WIU and Macomb High School, including individuals with special needs or disabilities. JAIHO is Hindi for 'May Victory Prevail,' and the Jani family felt it was an appropriate term for the sentiment of the event. This event is made possible due to the generous endowment from Professor Emeritus Subhash Jani and his family.  See the original press release.
