A proud graduate
Nearly 70 years after she was forced to leave school and report for an internment camp during World War II, Uri Matsuda finally wore a Seattle University cap and gown. Matsuda is pictured with Professor Lori Bannai, associate director of the Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality, who spearheaded the drive to award undergraduate honorary degrees to Matsuda and other Japanese American students whose educations were disrupted. Keiro Nursing Home held a ceremony in August for Matsuda, who was unable to attend the university's June commencement. (Photo by Marcus Donner.)
