Amazing Seniors: Dr. Don Miyada

This story has a special place in my heart.  Dr. Don Miyada, like my father, was sent to an internment camp and then served in the U.S. Army during World War II.  Dr. Miyada was unable to attend his high school graduation due to mandatory evacuation.  Now 72 years later, at the age of 89, Dr. Miyada participated in his graduation ceremony at Newport Harbor High School with the class of 2014.  His achievements against adversity and positive attitude are an invaluable lesson for all.
