Two students at The Bishop's School in La Jolla have earned certificates from the Princeton Prize in Race Relations for projects to help improve race relations in their community.
Daxton Gutekunst and Elias Herrera will receive their certificates at a ceremony in Point Loma on Sunday, May 22.
Daxton, a junior at The Bishop's School, earned his certificate for founding Kid by Kid, which provides tutoring sessions to elementary and middle school students from refugee and immigrant families. The tutoring is given by other students.
Elias, a Bishop's senior, was recognized for his role in founding the Regional Student Diversity Summit, which first took place virtually in February 2021. The summit on race relations and social justice brought together more than 300 students and faculty members from schools in three states.
