INDIANAPOLIS – Crispus Attucks Medical Magnet High School Principal Robert Faulkens today announces that several medical professionals will be honored for their support and involvement with the Crispus Attucks Medical Magnet High School (CAMMHS) for what is planned to be a recognition and school fund-raiser. The honorees are:
Dr. William Baiyee—Indiana University School of Medicine, directs the Master of Science in Medical Science Program and Special Programs in the Office of Medical Student Affairs
Dr. Kristal Williams—Clinical Pharmacist with the Indiana University Department of Family Medicine
Dr. Lawrence Goldblatt—Professor of Oral Pathology and Dean of Indiana University School of Dentistry
Mrs. Sherry Makely— Manager of Employee Education & Development for Clarian Health Partners
Dr. Kim McElroy—Executive Director of Metropolitan Indianapolis Central Indiana-Area Health Education Center (MICI-AHEC) at St. Vincent Health
The “Return to Excellence,” consisting of parents, friends, alumni, and corporate professionals, initiated the idea as a way to thank the medical community for their involvement with the magnet students.
The committee has also taken on the responsibility for ensuring the success of the students by hosting a ticketed magic show to help raise money to pay for needed school supplies and equipment.
“Events like this are a reminder that all residents can play a role to inspire our young people,” commented principle Faulkens. “We hope that the entire alumni base will come out to support this event and what we are doing at the school”.
The fund-raiser will feature the award winning performance by illusionist and magician “The Spell Binder”. The magic show will follow the awards recognition, both held in the Crispus Attucks Auditorium beginning at 6:30pm on Thursday, November 12. The event is open to the general public. Ticket price is $15 and can be purchased at the Crispus Attucks main office and museum and families are encouraged to attend.
The Crispus Attucks Medical Magnet focuses on a holistic approach to teaching and learning. This approach includes a rigorous curriculum that incorporates direct instruction, problem and inquiry-based learning, and scientific methodology in daily instruction. Students will have an on-going opportunity to engage in real world learning situations in the medical and science fields through internships, and shadowing experiences at a variety of local hospitals and medical science facilities.
