The sun peaked through the thick grey clouds the morning of October 10th, on to the white tent situated on the corner of 17th Street and Pacific Avenue on the University of Washington, Tacoma campus. The squash colored leaves danced on the branches to the beat of the Taiko, a Japanese drum, signaling the beginning of the celebration. Cars whizzed on by the busy downtown Tacoma Street, creating a custom rhythm for the unveiling of the nine foot tall sculpture designed by the NW artist Gerard Tsutakawa and landscape architect Kenichi Nakano in memory of the Japanese Language School that once stood in downtown Tacoma.

What is your current role at the community Foundation and what drew you to this position?
My current role at GTCF is as the Spark Grant Liaison. I was drawn to this position from my previous work serving on the Spark Grant Board at GTCF. I soon realized that I wanted to become more involved in the organization than serving on the committee. A series of remarkable events that I have been honored to take part of led me to GTCF. This role is a perfect fit for what I want to accomplish for this community.

< Sherrana and Evelyn of the Community Foundation visit our partners at the site of the new student center. The YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties holds an agency fund with us and is a recent recipient of one of our Summer Learning Opportunity grants.
I walked into the Tacoma Center YMCA last week and was surprised to find almost every machine had someone on it. The gym is popular and usually bustling, but never quite so packed! Eventually, I remembered all those notices about the basketball court being refinished. It wasn’t a major inconvenience, but even if it had been, it's well worth it.
