Congratulations to Senior Ose Arheghan, who received a Certificate of Accomplishment in the Princeton Prize on Race Relations earlier last month.

The Shaker chapter Ose co-founded is the first one the Cleveland NAACP has chartered in its history. Ose attended a recognition ceremony on April 11 at the Union Club and was honored with two other area high school students.

Ose was also named a member of The Ohio State University's Morrill Scholars Program, which is awarded to students who show commitment to both academics and diversity by excelling in the classroom and making a positive impact in their communities. Morrill Scholars are selected because they have shown their advocacy for equity and access by contributing to those around them.
