Art of Conversation Speaker Series

Last Wednesday Sarah McBride closed out our Cab Calloway School Fund’s Art of Conversation Speaker Series. The Cab Calloway School Fund would like to thank all the patrons and supporters of the Speaker Series. The first series was a great success bringing nationally acclaimed speakers to Delaware for informative, insightful and fun interviews.

The speaker series is designed to help the School Fund continue its efforts for the endowment to support the various arts in the Cab Calloway School community.

Sarah Mcbride is the National Press Secretary for the Human Rights Campaign. In 2012, Sarah made national headlines when she came out as transgender while serving as student body president at American University. A native of Wilmington, Delaware, Sarah serves on the Board of Directors of Equality Delaware and helped lead the successful effort to add gender identity and expression to Delaware’s nondiscrimination and hate-crimes laws. In 2008, Sarah worked for Governor Jack Markell (D-DE) and, in 2010, for former Attorney General Beau Biden (D-DE). Prior to coming to HRC, Sarah worked on LGBTQ equality at the Center for American Progress and interned at the White House, the first out trans woman to do so. Last year, Sarah made history when she became the first openly transgender person to address a major political party’s convention when she spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

 

Sarah is a Cab Calloway School of the Arts Alumni (2009) and is launching her new book which is available now.

You can find Sarah’s talks as well as Maurice Hines and Sarah Stroman’s at the below link.

College & Career Decision Day Celebration

On May 1st, our School Counseling Department, with support from the PTSO, hosted our annual College & Career Decision Day to celebrate the achievements of our AMAZING Class of 2018. 

Due to the success of our College Application Week held back in October, all 124 members of the Class of 2018 applied to at least one college by January 1st.  The Class of 2018 certainly kept our high school counselor, Kimberly Rigby, on her toes by submitting a WHOPPING total of 800 college applications, with an average of seven application submissions per senior! 

97.5% of the Class of 2018 will attend college in the fall, with the remaining 2.5% entering the world of work or attending cosmetology school.

Big Wins for Cab @ Delaware’s National History Day

Congrats to everyone!

Saturday March 24th, our middle and high school students competed at the Delaware National History Day. Students have been working on these research projects over many months, and even getting to compete at the state level is a tremendous achievement. Our students were amazing ambassadors of our school, and as you can see below, they were handsomely rewarded for all their hard work. We said it last year, but it is worth restating: the skills that our students have learned in their arts classes had a dramatic impact on their success. Students leveraged these skills in all their projects! As we move on to nationals in June, I hope you will get a chance to see some of these projects (and perhaps even offer some constructive feedback!).

Above and Beyond in Red Clay

Extraordinary parent volunteer Miss Angi Barker wins the Red Clay Parent Volunteer of the Month!

rsz_1img_2748

The patron saint of Cab Calloway Middle School Clubs, Miss Angi Barker has received the Above and Beyond Parent Volunteer of the Month Award from the Red Clay Consolidated School District.

Angi has been working with middle school students at Cab since her son Dan and daughter Sarah were Cab students. They have long since graduated and moved on to adulthood, nevertheless Angi has stayed on as an integral part of many Cab middle school clubs.

A tireless student advocate, Miss Angi comes in at least four days a week working with her Technology Student Association (TSA), Science Olympiad, and Business Professionals of America (BPA) students. She teaches them a wide variety of soft and hard skills, all of which will help them later in life, no matter what they decide to do for a living.

Always with wry wit, Miss Angi has great fun working with the kids and makes learning enjoyable and approachable for her students. Her goal is to change lives for the better and instill within each child the self-confidence they need to succeed.

This is not the first honor Miss Angi has received; in 2015 she received the Cab Calloway Honorary Diploma, also due to her extraordinary efforts for our students every day.

Way to go Angi!
