Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community

Sadako Nakata Koura and grandson Eddie Nakata

In 1992, Bainbridge High School remembered its displaced graduates of 1942. Thirteen young people had been forced to leave their home just weeks before graduation. Fifty years later, these students were invited to participate in the school’s formal graduation ceremonies. Sa Koura, Nobi Omoto, and Sue Yonemitsu were able to attend.
