Carolina Day School is delighted to announce that the recipient of the 2018-19 Lynn Waple Award is Lower School art teacher, Annie Monaghan. This award, made possible by the Lynn Waple Endowment Fund for Teaching Excellence, recognizes teaching excellence and provides recipients with funding to pursue a unique professional development opportunity.
Annie wrote the following in her proposal about her desire to attend a summer workshop at Penland School of Crafts: “The workshop, ‘Scaling Up’ (Murals) is taught by Anthony Lee, nationally known artist and painter, who will teach the methods of mural-making, from the initial sketch to the final creation. This will be an amazing opportunity to learn the skills of creating murals to beautify and enhance our community.”
Annie is excited about working with Lee, whose experience includes work as the studio artist and manager of Marshall Arts (Memphis); lead mural artist for more than 15 public projects in Memphis; and exhibitions in Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, Dixon Gallery (Memphis), Memphis College of Art, Arkansas Arts Center, National Civil Rights Museum (Memphis), and Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts (US Virgin Islands).
The Lynn Waple Endowment Fund for Teaching Excellence was established in 1999 by grateful parents in honor of Lynn Waple, a beloved Lower School teacher. The fund supports professional development for faculty and staff who have been with the school for five years or more and who have demonstrated the highest level of teaching excellence and/or high achievement in other areas of school life.
Endowment funds directly support a variety of school-related programs and priorities, including professional development, tuition assistance, academic excellence, athletics, the arts, and capital projects.
