The Santa Ana College Foundation is committed to ensuring that no student is denied educational opportunities due to financial constraint.
Santa Ana College (SAC) is seeking 22 Japanese American students who attended the college in the early 1940s and were forced to interrupt their education when Executive Order 9066 sent Japanese Americans to internment camps during World War II. The college hopes to bestow honorary degrees on these students or their family members at this year’s spring commencement. If anyone has any information about the whereabouts of the following individuals, please contact Mark Liang, SAC associate dean of admissions and records, at 714-564-6040 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
