Moses Taylor Pyne Honor Prize Awarded to Dream Team Participant
The Moses Taylor Pyne Honor Prize, Princeton’s highest undergraduate award, was bestowed on Yessica Martinez ’15 at Alumni Day on 21 February 2015. Yessica was a participant in the DREAM Team lobbying of Congress in Spring 2013 which was supported by PPro. In her acceptance speech, Yessica mentioned PPro and our support by name, and that comment was picked up later in the ceremony by Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, recipient of the Woodrow Wilson Award. Other awards and speeches suggested that progressive ideals of social justice are alive and well at Princeton, at least on this one day.
