Sian Sheu Selected for Fellowship Program

The Knight Foundation recently selected 20 community leaders from across the country for their Emerging City Champions Fellowship Program, and our very own Community Engagement and Programs Manager, Sian Sheu, was one of the selected recipients!

The grant provides seed funding and training for these selected leaders to enhance public spaces, urban mobility, and civic engagement. Specifically, Shawn will be encouraging cross-cultural engagement at the Rail Park by inviting residents to lead outdoor workshops for their neighbors, teaching skills from Mahjong to salsa.

We are tremendously proud of Sian, tremendously excited for the work she’s doing, and tremendously grateful to the Knight Foundation for supporting our efforts to bring the Rail Park to life.
