Join Oregon PSR online on Thursday, April 28th at 6:00 PM for an evening of celebration of the high school student winners of our 2022 Greenfield Peace Scholarship. The Greenfield Peace Scholarship is an opportunity to hear from young Oregonians on some of the most pressing issues of our time. We sponsor this annual scholarship to encourage Oregon’s youth to consider their leadership role in promoting a more healthy, just, and peaceful world. Named in honor of Del Greenfield, our longtime Executive Director, the scholarship is in its 14th consecutive year in 2022.
We invite you to learn more about this year's distinguished panel of scholarship judges: Quincy Davis, Lael Tate, and Tanaya Winde.
Quincy Davis has made an impact as a gifted and dedicated music producer, lyricist, recording artist, and video producer based in Portland. Much of Quincy's work draws from life experience out of a self-destructive lifestyle to find his path, and he works with the power of music, lyricism, and visual storytelling to inspire personal and collective transformation. Since 2011, Quincy has been involved in youth education work, visiting high schools, treatment centers, and lock own facilities as a speaker, workshop leader, and part-time teacher. In 2016, he established Cypher CURE utilizing the power of the Hip-Hop freestyle cypher (circle) to serve some of the most vulnerable youth in our community. Since 2021, he has been developing Voices of Wisdom, an educational initiative to offer a bridge from elder wisdom to the younger generation.
