Awty Sophomore Angela Chen Organizes Local Diversity Conference

After participating in the NAIS Student Diversity Leadership conference in Anaheim, California last December 2017, 10th grader Angela Chen was inspired to organize a local diversity conference with four of the top schools in Houston.  Students participating in this conference came from Awty, St John's School, the Kinkaid School, and Episcopal High School.  Each school brought a cohort of students to the conference to engage in workshops and discussions that centered around friendship, affinity, and diversity.  Approximately 35 students participated in the student-led conference.  It was great to see such a collaborative effort between young people in Houston, demonstrating exemplary student leadership.
