Please join us in congratulating Shewa Shwani who received the 2017 Unsung Hero Award at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration January 29, 2017 held in the Carrier Dome. Shewa is an ESF Junior majoring in biotechnology — and an ESF Outreach Student Assistant! Shewa earned this award because of the combination of her work in the community and her work to spread awareness about different cultures.
In addition to her schoolwork, Shewa’s service has included volunteering at the Food Recovery Network (FRN) and the Duck Race to End Racism at the Syracuse Inner Harbor, serving as vice president of the Muslim Student Association at Syracuse University, and organizing the inaugural 3k Run for Literacy to raise awareness about literacy needs among the refugee community.
Shewa works on–campus in both the Student Diversity and Inclusion Office, and the ESF Outreach Office.
