Some of you may remember that our club sponsored a District 7930 Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar in 2000, Chris Daly.  As an Ambassadorial Scholar, Chris studied New Zealand, Australia, and Fiji in 2000. She was sponsored by Reading Rotary and individually by Richie Lombardo.  

Chris has been named  as one of the “5 Best Mediators in New York” where she mentions her Rotary scholarship:

She serves as Associate Director of Training for the New York Peace Institute in NYC.  

Taken from the NY Peace website:  Chris is an attorney, trainer and a certified conflict coach & mediator. She oversees the growth and development of New York Peace Institute’s certified mediators and is a member of the Executive Team. Chris manages our competitive Apprenticeship Program, an education program for aspiring conflict resolution professionals. Prior to joining New York Peace Institute, Chris was a domestic violence prosecutor for 10 years at the District Attorney’s Office in Bronx County. Chris has a master’s degree in education from Harvard University and a law degree from Boston College. Chris was a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar in New Zealand, Australia, and Fiji, where she promoted cross-cultural understanding. She is actively involved in the New York State Bar Association, particularly in the Law, Youth & Citizenship Committee. Chris is dedicated to identifying innovative approaches to bringing people together so they can manage disagreements creatively and constructively.

Chris was a supremely impressive young woman during her time as an Ambassadorial Scholar.  It's rewarding to see her success, especially in the areas of peace and conflict resolution.
