At an upcoming gala, the USC Asian Pacific Alumni Association will honor Nisei (American-born) USC students who were impacted by the internment of American citizens of Japanese descent during World War II.
The recognition will take place at the group's annual scholarship and awards gala on Friday, April 25, at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel.
As a result of the interment, some USC students in the era were denied degrees or access to academic records.
Martha Harris, USC senior vice president for university relations, will present the honors at the gala on behalf of USC President Steven B. Sample.
"The experience of these students is a stark reminder to us about the need for tolerance, understanding and respect," Harris said. "We look forward to welcoming these students back to the Trojan Family, and honoring their endurance and accomplishment." [Link]
