Peace Ambassadors End Another Successful Year
Posted: Friday, May 17, 2013.
On May 10, 2013 St. Gregory College Preparatory School's Peace Ambassadors were honored in a closing ceremony designed to acknowledge the noble work conducted on campus throughout the school year, as well as present some of the messages of goodwill that Peace Ambassadors strive to convey to their school community.
A plaque was presented to the troop of twenty-four Peace Ambassadors, and speeches were offered by Natalya Mayhew, Maya Encila, Margo Cramer and Safia Francis. The Peace Ambassadors spoke of the lessons learned during the year. These include conflict mediation skills from the 'Rise Up' training they offered their peers, and how important it is to get to know each other across grades, classes, genders, and backgrounds.
The Peace Ambassadors also surprised the audience by enacting short music clips with positive lyrical messages to include Elena Acuña as Elvis, Addison Mort as Gandhi, Tea Weiner as Kermit the Frog, Margo Cramer as Diana Ross, and Kai Morfin thrilled his peers as he moonwalked across the foggy stage as Michael Jackson!
We are grateful for the efforts voluntarily given to our school community all year by these fine Peace Ambassadors. Thank you for another great year!
