Two leaders of the Queens College• Student Help Project have been selected for B’nai B'rith Human Relations Awards for "their success in helping the various religious and cultural groups at the college work together effectively."
They are Michael Wenger, son of Mr. and Mrs. Emmanuel Wenger of 1000 East Broadway Woodmere and Stanley Shaw, son of Iv1r. and Mr. Leonard Shaw of 120-01 230th Street, Cambria Heights. Both are majoring in political science.
Mr. Wenger, a senior, and Mr. Shaw, a junior, will share the award which will be presented by the Metropolitan Council of B'nai B’rith at a ceremony in the Queens College Theatre on Wednesday, May 6, at 1 p.m.
Representing the Metropolitan Council of B'nai B'rith at the presentation will be Mrs. Belema Reina, Mr. Joel Komarow, Mr. Maurice Rosenbaum, and Mr. Charles Seibel.
Following the presentation, a panel discussion on the role of a college in the area of human rights will be conducted. Panelists will include Dr. Marilyn Gittell of Forest Hills, Assistant Professor of Political Science; Dr. John J. McDermott of Huntington Village, Assistant Professor of Philosophy; Dr. Sidney Simon of Ludo Beach, Assistant Professor of Education; and Leon Met, Vice- President of the Student Association at Queens College•.
Mr. Wenger and Mr. Shaw were founders of the Student Help Project which was established by Queens College students, representing various interested student organizations, to provide tutorial help and recreational programs for minority group children in the South and in the borough of Queens. More than 200 students are participating in the project which is currently operating 22 tutorial centers in Queens, serving more than 1,000 children.
Mr. Shaw was chairman of the project last year and Mr. Wenger is presently serving as chairman.
This is the second time Queens College students have been honored by the B’nai B1rith for the work of the Student Help Project. Last August, the national B'nai B'rith presented an award to the Student Association of Queens College at the National Student Association Congress at the University of Indiana.
