Prestigious Prize in Race Relations Awarded to Friends School Senior



Friends Senior Cinneah El-Amin


Friends School Senior Cinneah El-Amin has been awarded this year’s Princeton Prize in Race Relations. The prize, including a $1,000 cash award and an invitation to the annual Princeton Prize Symposium on Race, is presented annually to U.S. high school students in 24 regional areas.

Cinneah, however, listens carefully and contributes perspectives that are otherwise absent in the discussion,” she wrote.
