Congratulations to Nottingham senior Ranya Shannon, honored by InterFaith Works with its 2015 Racial Justice Award (youth category). Ranya has attended the Seeds of Peace summer camp twice and continues to build on the leadership and negotiation skills she developed while at Seeds in Maine. Through Seeds, Ranya has also had the privilege of attending a three-day Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Seminar as well as speaking at the United Nations on International Peace Day about the work she is doing in Syracuse.

She has also been a part of Community Wide Dialogue for two years, an intense dialogue program that bridges the gaps between Syracuse’s inner city and suburban schools.
