Sister Andrea Kantner, member of the Rotary Club of Independence, was the recipient of the prestigious International Peace Award from the Community of Christ.  Sister Andrea is the founder of the Franciscan Mission Warehouse.  She was presented the award at the Community of Christ's World Conference.  
The Community of Christ International Peace Award has been given since 1993. The award includes a financial gift to be donated to the charitable peace, justice, or environmental organization(s) of the recipient's choice. Honorees also receive a sculpture created by Wyoming artist Gail Sundell. Each is made slightly different to honor the unique peacemaking contribution of the recipient.
