What Exactly is Seeds of Peace?
In a world so divisive and violent, there are still people and programs dedicated to bringing us together - working toward a world of Peace. Tim Wilson from the Seeds of Peace Camp is one of them. Senior College Food for Thought is proud to be hosting him as our next speaker.
A former Peace Corps volunteer, Tim Wilson has more than 50 years of experience in education, public service and athletic coaching. Currently, he serves as Senior Advisor to Seeds of Peace, an organization that he has been with since its founding in 1993. Until 2006, Tim was the Director of both the Seeds of Peace Camp in Maine and the Seeds of Peace Center for Coexistence in Jerusalem. He is still filling that role at the camp here in Maine.
Tim has worked at several schools here in Maine both as a teacher and a coach. His awards include recognition in football, and wrestling as well as the Gerda Haas Award for Excellence in Human Rights Education and Leadership from the Holocaust and Human Rights Center and a Medal of Honor from the late King Hussein of Jordan.
Tim has five children and eight grandchildren, all of whom have contributed to Seeds of Peace’s success over the years. His wife, Jacquie, is a long-standing and dedicated supporter of Seeds of Peace and served as the Director of Food Services at Camp for a number of summers.
