American Repertory Ballet and the Princeton Ballet School awarded incoming Rutgers Student Iraida Izaquirre the Gregory Hines Dance Power endowed scholarship. This scholarship was established by Hines, the honorary national chair for Dance Power, before his untimely passing. It earmarks annual funds for a student graduating from ARB’s Dance Power Scholars Program to attend the university.
As a third-grader at Livingston School in New Brunswick, Izaguirre received a scholarship through ARB’s flagship residency program, Dance Power, which gave her the opportunity to take classes at Princeton Ballet School free of charge throughout high school. As part of ARB’s Dance Power Scholars Program, Izaguirre was able to attend the Princeton Ballet School on full scholarship during her high school years.
Soon to be an incoming freshman at Rutgers University, she plans to double major in criminal justice and sociology. “It’s been a blessing being a part of this wonderful program,” said Izaguirre. “Dance Power has been there for me a long time. Here’s to another chapter of my life!”

Now in its fourth year, this free mini-course offered through the Master Teacher Institute in Holocaust Education (MTI) provides an opportunity for teachers to study Holocaust history in an intensive and comprehensive way during their summer break.
Participants in the course were primarily middle and high school teachers from public schools around the state. Sponsored by the Herbert and Leonard Littman Families Holocaust Resource Center, the course was conducted at the Allen and Joan Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life in New Brunswick.
The course includes university style lectures, film discussions, resource material and recorded testimonies, and pedagogical sessions on classroom application. Participants receive numerous benefits from the MTI program, including professional development hours, help in curriculum development from experts in Holocaust pedagogy, access to a supportive network of teachers, and connection to the Shoah Visual History Archive.

St. Olaf College
Nicholas Bowlin of Princeton received a bachelor’s degree in political science, cum laude for St. Olaf College in Northfield Minnesota this spring.
Union Catholic High School
Union Catholic High School has been an accredited Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA) member school since 1969. Accreditation is not only a status; it is also an ongoing process that ensures a school’s continued growth and excellence. According to the MSA, accreditation is the result of an “external, objective validation of school quality and achievement—the Gold Standard.”
For two years, Union Catholic engaged in a comprehensive self-study, using the MSA protocol “Excellence by Design.” The self-study process was facilitated by two Internal Coordinators: Noreen Andrews, Assistant Principal, and Barbara Dellanno, Dean of Academics & Faith-Formation.
The Planning Team, whose members represented a cross-section of UC stakeholders and included faculty member Catarina Abrantes, Director of School Counseling Jennifer Dixon, faculty member Timothy Breza, faculty member and alumus Edward Sagendorf class of 2007, Associate Principal and alumna Karen Piasecki class of 1988, faculty member and Media Specialist Kathy Webber, Student Support Services Director and alumna Meg Nuwer class of 1998, faculty member and alumnus Ed Thornton class of 2004, and Director of Parent Relations and UC parent Allison Lestarchick, working closely with the Internal Coordinators. This team developed a Mission Statement, reflecting UC’s vision for the school and its students; a Belief Statement, identifying UC’s core values and the beliefs that guide the school’s mission; and The Profile of a Graduate, specifying what UC students have to know, be able to do, and to demonstrate for the school to achieve its mission. These three foundation documents are available at www.unioncatholic.org under “About Us.”
The Planning Team also collected the information and data from stakeholders that was used to create its report on the Context of the School and its Profiles of Student Performance and Organizational Capacity. All of this led to the team’s development of a Plan for Growth and Improvement in student performance and the school’s capacity to achieve the desired outcomes. Three measurable objectives were identified by the team. The first two objectives focus on student performance: improving critical reading proficiency and increasing knowledge of the principles of Catholic social teaching. The third objective focuses on curriculum design in light of the Profile of the Graduate.
In October 2015, a Visiting Team appointed by MSA spent four days evaluating the school using the self-study as its guide. Some highlights of the Visiting Team’s report:
On May 2016, Union Catholic received “Official Notice of Middle States Accreditation” for the period May 1, 2016 to May 1, 2023. In his letter to the school the MSA President, Henry G. Cram Ed. D, commended UC for continuing “to be among the schools throughout the world that meet the internationally recognized standards of quality of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools”—the Gold Standard.
