New Website Highlights HCHS Diversity

Parents, check out the brand-new Project Diversity web site developed by two HCHS juniors. Shamsa Derrick '16 and Meredith Pong '16 won a Certificate of Achievement for their project from the Princeton Prize in Race Relations. Project Diversity, now a club, aims to promote, discuss and explore diversity; to create the new site, Hunter students and teachers participated in a project to illuminate the faults and impacts of stereotypes to which members of the school community have been subjected. "We wanted to showcase that stereotypes, which often have negative connotations, can be humbly and maturely embraced as well," Derrick and Pong write.
