Sierra College’s Standing Guard Project has directed the College and its community toward a variety of interdisciplinary projects focused on two objectives. First, we commemorate the sacrifices made by Placer County’s Japanese American citizens during World War II who, along with 112,000 Japanese Americans living near the west coast of the United States, were interned for the duration of the war, many while sons fought fascism overseas.

KanjiAdditionally, Sierra College’s Standing Guard Project affirms our promise to our students and to our community to vigilantly encourage all Americans to remember the necessity, especially in times of great threat, of protecting the rights of all United States citizens under the Constitution. Today’s ceremony honors those Japanese Americans whose lives have, for more than 60 years, intertwined with Sierra College’s, whether as students, whose college careers were cut short by internment, or as teachers, whose stories of internment and service to the country have shown us the true meaning of courage and patriotism.
