The Memphis Committee has chosen him for the Princeton Prize in Race Relations.

The Princeton Prize in Race Relations recognizes and rewards high school students who have had a significant positive effect on race relations in their schools or communities through their volunteer efforts.

Prize recipients receive a cash prize of $1,000 and an all-expenses-paid weekend to a Symposium on Race at Princeton University where they will meet and engage with other Prize recipients from across the country.

The 2019 Princeton Prize Symposium on Race is scheduled April 25-27. The Symposium gives Prize recipients the opportunity to meet like-minded students from across the country and to engage in meaningful discussions about race and race relations. Winners will present their project to Princeton University students, alumni and also to fellow winners. From The Princeton Prize in Race Relations website.
