Gunners in the community
Cannon member Ryan Schwieger ’21 on the men’s basketball has cofounded an organization called PollHero. Here is a quote from Ryan on the project, “The PollHero project is an all-volunteer organization with the sole purpose of recruiting more young people to work the polls on election day. The majority of poll workers are older Americans, who are at a greater risk of Covid-19 complications. We are solving this problem by recruiting young people to become poll workers, ensuring polling stations are open and everybody can exercise their right to vote.” Here is the link to the full article.
Fellow basketball teammate Elijah Barnes ’21 has been a positive influence in the community for his work in the Black Lives Matter movement. Here is a link to a great article about Elijah if you haven’t seen it yet. Elijah also spoke at the BLM march in Princeton in July. Other Princeton community members also contributed to that event, here is the link to that article. We are so proud of Elijah and the work he has done for the black community!

There have been many beach days, movie nights, and karaoke sessions, we are very thankful to still have time together even if it’s not in Cannon. To end this little update here is a picture of all of our favorite place in the world!
