The Princeton Prize in Race Relations Philadelphia Committee was pleased to recognize Mayra Zavala Zavala from Kennett Square High School as the recipient of the Philadelphia 2012 Princeton Prize in Race Relations. Ms. Zavala has worked tirelessly to bring together disparate community members through the building of a community garden. Her efforts have encouraged community members to see their similarities more than their differences. We were also pleased to award Certificates of Accomplishment to Ms. Aresema Thomas and Mr. Leander Berry for their efforts towards breaking down barriers between racial groups. For this years Awards Ceremony, the Committee was very honored to have as our keynote speaker, Deputy Mayor Richard Negrin (Managing Director of the City of Philadelphia). We loved the strong Princeton community showing at our Awards Ceremony which not only to highlighted and recognized the significance of the efforts undertaken by these three young women and men, but to also show the City of Philadelphia our interest as a Club in being part of the civic dialogue.
