Peacemaker Awards

Veterans for Peace and the Binghamton Community Friends Meeting (Quaker) presented $350 Stu Naismith Peacemaker awards to four graduating high school seniors, two at Chenango Valley and two at Chenango Forks High Schools. Kelly Smith, Kelly Thompson, Alexander McRoberts and Kate Flynn received the awards, given annually in memory of Stu Naismith (1927-2011), who served in the Navy in World War II, taught in both school districts, and was a founder of the local chapter of Veterans for Peace. The students earned the awards by working for peace in everyday life, preparing for further education, and writing an essay on peacemaking.
