Join us at 7pm, May 3rd at the WGA as we recognize this year's Princeton Prize winner, Caroline Wegner:

During all four of her high school years, Caroline Wegner has participated in (and now co-leads) the Student Diversity Leadership Club at La Jolla Country Day School.  Last year, after a swastika appeared on campus drawn by an anonymous student, Caroline helped organize a “Diversity Half-Day” with a theme addressing religious diversity.  This year, she helped organize a full-day “Diversity Day,” with a theme of confronting racial stereotypes.  For nearly two years she met weekly to plan these diversity events with first a committee of 12, and later a committee of 20.   The time commitment was considerable - 10 hours every weekend for three to four months.  It helps that she is extremely organized, adept at preparing scripts, workshops, activities, and time-lines.

Caroline is a strong-willed, pro-active risk taker who has challenged teachers who sought to back away from uncomfortable issues, and privileged students who’ve said “I’m not racist – diversity isn’t my issue.”   The speech she delivered at the MLK breakfast, talking about the difference between tolerance and acceptance, moved her entire campus.

Admission to the event is FREE.

Complimentary hors d'oeuvres will be served

Guest speaker TBD.
