After a 15-year career in the newsroom of KPIX-TV, in 1991 she cofounded Bridge Media, Inc., a media production and consulting company. She is currently co-producing and directing a documentary about Secretary Norman Mineta, An American Story: Norman Mineta and His Legacy, premiering at the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) film festival in May, 2018

  • Outstanding Alumna of the Year:

    Margaret Koide Kusaba, UCB '48', one of the longest-standing directors of JAWAUCB, served on the board for 23 years. During her tenure, her careful record keeping ensured that the club's history and legacy was preserved. As a life-long educator, for 20 years she used her skills as a social worker and teacher to educate generations of children in the San Francisco public schools, many from low-income Asian immigrant families. She has been a long-time member of JACL, advocating for Japanese American rights, including the intensely debated fight for reparations.
