Dear CAC Community,
As we look forward to the last week of school prior to a well-deserved winter break, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the commitment, passion, and time you invest into making CAC special. We are delighted to share with you the long awaited news of the safe completion of the High School renovation project. The process of occupying the building has begun and we look forward to the educational opportunities that a new building will provide to our High School Students, Faculty, Staff and Administration. I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude for the tireless work and endless hours exerted by the Board of Trustees, the Administration and Hassan Allam, working together as a team to bring this labor of love to completion. The end result is spectacular!
In addition to the High School renovation project, the board and administration have been busy these past couple of months with our accreditation team visit. While we don’t have the final report yet, the visit went extremely well and we are cautiously optimistic of the final results. The board continues its fiduciary responsibility by monitoring execution of this year’s budget and looking to the future by preparing for our 2022-2023 operational and capital budget and for our master plan expansion efforts. As always we continue to refine our policies and align them with a lens towards Diversity Equity and Inclusion. The board is also working with the administration on the details of the strategic plan with timelines and deliverables related to the strategic framework adopted last spring 2021.
We would like to take this opportunity to request that you help us with recognizing the contributions of CAC’s greatest asset, our community. The involvement of our community is integral to our success and ensures that we continue our tradition of excellence.
The CAC Board of Trustees every year seeks to recognize members of our community through the CAC Community/Core Values award. This award is presented to members of our community who exhibit the CAC core values by making exceptional and varied contributions to the CAC community.
The CAC Core Values are: Compassion, Creativity, Courage, Integrity, Perseverance, Respect, and Responsibility. If you know of someone who has made a difference in the lives of our CAC Community while exhibiting these core values, please nominate her/him for the Core Values Award. Last year's recipients of the Board of Trustees Community/Core Values Award were: Derek Brown, Julie Jackson-Jin, and Ivana Lawrence,
The nomination form is available here. Forms can be obtained from the Board Executive Assistant, Nawal Gamal, on the 3rd floor of the Admin Building or via email email@example.com. Nominations are due no later than 3:00 pm on February 1, 2022. All members of the community - not currently on the Board of Trustees - are eligible to be considered for this award including faculty and staff so long as they make contributions to the community that are above and beyond their regular, expected duties.
Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge the contributions of your friends and colleagues to the CAC community.
On behalf of the CAC Board of Trustees, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy New Year. We sincerely hope that 2022 brings you peace, success, and fulfillment.
With my very best wishes for a fantastic year ahead,
Board Chair, Cairo American College
