Six Pace Academy students took part in a national diversity conference in December. Sophomores Lali Zamora, Payton Gannon and Xori Johnson, and juniors Brittany Allen, Noah Brooker and Kamran Sadiq attended the Student Diversity Leadership Conference in Maryland.

The conference, hosted by the National Association of Independent Schools, is a multiracial, multicultural gathering of upper school student leaders from around the country, Pace said. Participants examine issues of social justice, develop effective cross-cultural communication skills, practice expression through the arts, and learn networking principles and strategies, the Buckhead school said.
