Chungkang College of Cultural Industries was founded in 1996 by the late Mr. Yeon-ho Lee, ex-president of Namyang Aloe. The college is based on the three principles of love for nature, love for human beings, and love for culture. Aspiring to embody his ancestors’ belief that education should be the foremost priority in allocating resources, and influenced by the Christian emphasis of the value of sharing, Mr. Lee regarded education as a lifelong project.
“If it’s such fun growing trees, how fun and rewarding must it be to cultivate human talent?”
Having enjoyed planting and raIsing trees throughout his life, Mr. Lee could not hide his happiness when he started cultivating human talent. Though he tragically left this world less than a year after founding the college, his vision has since taken root ever more deeply.
