Chloe Labrecque and Cam Pham, two Riverview High school seniors who have served as members of the school’s Coexistence Club, were recently awarded $1,000 four-year renewable scholarships by Embracing Our Differences. According to Ben Jewell-Plocher, EOD’s education director, the two students are part of an inaugural EOD scholarship initiative, which will grant annual $1,000 renewable scholarships to three students at regional high school Coexistence Clubs. Current Coexistence Club locations include Booker, North Port, Riverview, and Sarasota high schools. Coexistence Club members serve as docents for thousands of students from area elementary and middle schools who visit EOD’s outdoor exhibit every year in addition to designing and leading student-driven initiatives in their schools to promote inclusion and acceptance.

“The fierce commitment of Coexistence Club members to promote diversity, inclusion, integrity and respect in their schools and at EOD’s annual exhibit led us to consider how we could further honor their efforts while also supporting their education after graduation,” says Jewell-Plocher. “We are thrilled to have the chance to work with all the amazing students in our Coexistence Clubs, congratulate Cam and Chloe on being the inaugural recipients of the Riverview High School Coexistence Club scholarship and thank Riverview club advisor Dena Sturm for her mentorship of both students.”

The 2021 exhibit will be January 20th through April 1st, 2021, in Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota.
