2023 RACIAL HARMONY SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT



The Center for Racial Harmony proudly announces Myles McGee as the winner of its $1000 2023 scholarship award.

Myles is a 2023 graduate of Althoff Catholic High School in Belleville, Illinois and will be attending McKendree University this Fall majoring in Psychology. Myles is also a two-time Racial Harmony Award Nominee having received the award in 2009 from Our Lady Queen of Peace School and Church and in 2010 from Althoff.

When asked how he saw himself promoting our diversity mission, Myles responded in essay, “I’ve many times heard the quote “To whom much is given, much is required”. When you look at that quote and quantify “given”, to many youth like myself whose family is not the most affluent, there may seem to be a disconnect. However, when the context of “given” is redefined as a quality, each of us has a responsibility to require more of ourselves.

The Gathering 2023

Each year, Racial Harmony, an organization dedicated to promoting understanding, cooperation, and communication among all races and ethnic groups, holds an annual Gathering in February. The primary function of the Racial Harmony Gathering is to honor students who have promoted goodwill and respect and have sought peaceful ways to resolve differences.

Area K-12 Educators were invited to nominate one (1) student from their school to be recognized at our annual awards celebration, The Gathering.

On Sunday, February 26, 2023, Center for Racial Harmony recognized 42 area student as this year’s honorees.
