Richland Collegiate High School Students Receive Princeton Prize

Four Richland Collegiate High School (RCHS) students recently received the Princeton Prize in Race Relations scholarship for the Dallas/Texas region. Ana Chavez, Samia Nasir, Kanwal Hamid and Aarzu Isa will receive a regionally awarded scholarship of $1,000 and will attend Princeton’s annual symposium on race.

The Princeton Prize in Race Relations was created to identify and commend young people who are working to increase understanding and mutual respect among all races. It’s mission is to promote harmony, understanding, and respect among people of different races by identifying and recognizing high school age students whose efforts have had a significant, positive effect on race relations in their schools or communities.

RCHS is a unique charter school for high school juniors and seniors. Students can complete their last two years of high school at Richland College by taking college courses and earning college credits with a focus on mathematics, science, and engineering or visual, performing, and digital arts.
