Junior Nick Adams-Motley currently attends the Central Nine Career Center and is studying culinary arts. He is interested in becoming a chef and has plans to attend either the Chefs Academy in Indianapolis or the nationally renowned Culinary Institute of America in New York after high school graduation. Lisa Ford, district wellness committee co-chair, worked with Nick as he researched kale recipes. He ultimately decided on making sauteed kale using this produce. Congrats on a great job Nick!

We are very proud of one of our students who is enrolled in our SPARC Center. Meghan McNeal will be spending the day today in Washington D.C. at the White House. Meghan will have breakfast with First Lady, Michelle Obama and then recieve an award on behalf of one of our educational partners; ArtMix and thier Urban Artisans program which will be cited for helping youth with disabilities. Here is the press release from ArtMix followed by links to a news story about Meghan that appeared on both channel 6 and channel 13! We are so very proud of Meghan and cannot wait to hear all about this honor when she returns! INDIANAPOLIS – Meghan McNeal will spend some quality time at the White House Nov. 17. The 20-year-old Indianapolis resident will travel to Washington, DC to receive an award from First Lady Michelle Obama on behalf of ArtMix and its Urban Artisans program. Urban Artisans will receive the 2015 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award, the nation’s highest honor for these programs. Accompanying Meghan will be Linda Wisler, ArtMix vice president of programs. “When I first heard [about the honor], I cried,” said Wayne McNeal, Meghan’s father. “For her to accomplish this on her own, I am just amazed.” McNeal credits ArtMix (formerly VSA Indiana) for helping Meghan develop independence, self-confidence, and interpersonal skills. ArtMix’s Urban Artisans program was created to help youth with disabilities transition from school to the workplace. Since its founding in 2001, the program has engaged more than 350 young people in this studios arts internship. Each year youth gain essential transferrable job skills through creating, marketing, and selling artwork. The award recognizes the country’s best creative youth development programs for using engagement in the arts and the humanities to increase academic achievement, graduation rates, and college enrollment. The awardees—chosen from a pool of more than 350 nominations and 50 finalists—were also recognized for improving literacy and language abilities, communication and performance skills, and cultural awareness. First presented in 1998, the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award is the signature program of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH). The awards are presented annually in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). In addition to the national recognition bestowed by receipt of the prestigious award, ArtMix will also receive $10,000 to support its programming and engage more young people from the community. “We hope this award will draw attention to the documented fact that programs like ours are essential investments not just in the lives of our young people, but in our community, as well,” said Gayle Holtman, president and CEO of ArtMix. “We’re incredibly proud of this achievement and of the young people, volunteers, supporters, board and staff who made it possible. The National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award is the nation’s highest honor for after-school arts and humanities programs. The award recognizes and supports outstanding programs that lay new pathways to creativity, expression, and achievement outside of the regular school day. These programs excite and engage a range of students, cultivating imagination, collaboration, discipline and academic success, with demonstrable results. “You can’t help but be moved by these kids, who show us the transformative power of the arts and humanities,” said Rachel Goslins, executive director of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. “They are staying in school longer, getting better grades, graduating from high school and going on to college at significantly higher rates than their peers. And they’re building skills that will last them a lifetime.” For more information about ArtMix, please visit artmixindiana.org.
