Cab Students Receive Scholastic Art & Writing National Medals!
Every year the Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Gold Key winners compete in NYC. This huge competition is sponsored by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers, includes participants from all 50 states, and American students studying abroad. Alumni include artists Andy Warhol, Philip Pearlstein, Cy Twombly, Robert Indiana, Kay WalkingStick, Mozelle Thompson, Hughie Lee-Smith, and John Baldessari; writers Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Bernard Malamud, Marc Brown, Myla Goldberg, and Joyce Carol Oates; photographer Richard Avedon; actors Frances Farmer, Robert Redford, Alan Arkin, Lena Dunham, and John Lithgow; fashion designer Zac Posen; and filmmakers Stan Brakhage, Ken Burns, and Richard Linklater. Outside the arts, Awards alumni employ their creativity to be successful in any number of ways—becoming leaders in fields including journalism, medicine, finance, government and public service, the law, science, design, and more. In 2015, opportunities such as Alumni Microgrants and an Alumni Writer’s Residency were created.
Receiving these awards is quite an accomplishment.

Cab Blood Drive on March 12th!
Sign up to donate today!
On Tuesday, March 12, from 8-1pm, Cab Calloway’s National Honor Society will be hosting its annual blood drive through the Blood Bank of Delmarva in Cab’s gym!
The blood bank relies on donations from drives like this one so hospitals have ample supplies of blood when they need it most. Though donations after tragic events are helpful, it is the prior donations that provide the initial support and can determine someone’s survival.
We encourage all students, staff, and parents who are over the age of 17 and weigh more than 110 pounds to come out and donate on March 12th. Our goal is 50 donations, but we are positive that we can beat that goal with your help!
The entire donation process will take approximately one hour. In order to donate, you must sign up for an appointment at https://donate.bbd.org/. When registering, use the sponsor code: CABC. You can find a PDF that will guide you through the registration process below.
If you have any questions about the blood drive, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Blood Bank of Delmarva directly.
We hope to see many of you on March 12th!
