Pulling Out All the Stops on April 24th

Academic Festival 2010—the second annual incarnation of this major event—will showcase an impressive line up of TC community members, including trustees, faculty, alumni and students.

Among the day’s many highlights is the formal dedication, at 10:45 a.m., of the Cowin Conference Center and a tribute to the person who made it possible, longtime Trustee Joyce Berger Cowin. Then TC President Fuhrman will honor Nahas Angula ’79, Prime Minister of Namibia and architect of that country’s school system, and Ulysses Byas ’52, a pioneering principal in an all-black school in the American south during the 1950s, with The President’s Medal of Excellence. Prime Minister Angula will then deliver a keynote address, titled “Out of Apartheid and Into the 21st Century.”
The day will also include a full slate of events geared to parents with children, including a session on college admissions.
