Peacemaker Award Winners

June 10, 2016 by Ralph McGrew

Abigail Lane of Chenango Valley High School and Mackenzie Bronson of Chenango Forks High School won the fifth annual Stu Naismith Memorial Peacemaker Awards. The two $350 scholarships were given on June 6 and 10, jointly by the Stu Naismith Chapter of Veterans for Peace and the Binghamton Community Friends Meeting (Quaker), in memory of Stuart Naismith (1927-2011), a World War II veteran and tireless campaigner for peace, who taught in both school districts.
Abigail and Mackenzie earned the awards by working for peace in everyday life, preparing for further education, and writing essays on peacemaking. The picture shows Joyce Thomas of the Quaker Meeting, Mackenzie Bronson, Stu's wife Peggy Naismith, and Jim Clune of Veterans for Peace. To support the scholarships in future years, contributions can be sent to the Binghamton Community Friends Meeting with the notation Peacemaker Award, in care of Alexa Héder, 9 Hickory Road, Binghamton 13905-1347.
