Note from the Headmaster, East Wake Academy High School in North Carolina

I just returned from Washington DC attending the National Alliance of Charter Schools Conference. Each state had a display board 8ft by 3ft listing the accomplishments of the charters in that state. The central picture was our initial announcement photo of the CASE project. In addition the top three accomplishments of charters in NC listed the launching of the Carter Foundation Partnership with EWA. It was a proud moment.

My thanks for all your support in making this a reality. When I read about the foundation I knew it would be the perfect partnership for EWA. It is good to be right... It will be our determination to make this partnership and academic service learning an integral part of our community and the lives of EWA students.
