A quick reminder that with the unending search for Middle East peace dominating the news, your readers/listeners/viewers may be interested in hearing from Timothy P. Wilson, a 1962 Slippery Rock University graduate and now camp director for the nationally spotlighted Seeds of Peace program. Mr. Wilson will be on the SRU campus Friday [April 3] in preparation for his 2 p.m. Sunday address at the university’s annual Academic Honors Convocation set for in Morrow Field House.

 Seeds of Peace is working to bring peace to the Middle East by bringing Israeli and Palestinian teens – and those from other neighboring countries – together to develop friendships in the hope those friendships will lead to a peace solutions throughout the region. Each summer since 1993, following the original World Trade Center bombing, the camp has met in Maine to give the teens a chance to know one another – and to develop bonds.

The organization and Mr. Wilson have been spotlighted on CBS’ “60 Minutes” as well as in major newspapers across the country. We will make Mr. Wilson available for interviews on Friday afternoon and  welcome your attendance.

 Mr. Wilson was named a recipient of SRU’s Outstanding Alumni Award in 1976. As part of his campus visit he will meet with faculty, students, student leaders and administration officials. Academic Honors Convocation honors SRU’s academic honoraries, students attaining a perfect 4.0 grade-point average, dean’s list students, scholar-athletes, outstanding community service participants and those recognized as SRU’s Presidential Scholars from the sophomore, junior and senior classes. Scholarship recipients and those who make scholarships possible will be honored, and the President’s Award for Excellence will be presented.

 If you are interested in an interview with Mr. Wilson, please call 724-738-2199.
