Lifetime Accomplishments

Carol developed a passion for scholarship when she served as President of the California Scholarship Federation at North Hollywood High School and was recipient of several scholarships supporting her attendance at UCLA (majoring in single subject credential in Art). After teaching four years at Birmingham High School in Van Nuys, she and her husband moved to San Diego where her career blossomed in the Grossmont Union High School District.

Carol was selected with a small group of arts educators from throughout the state to develop an enrichment program which has become The California Arts Project .

Retiring after 30 years in the art department and spending 18 of those years for CAEA as Scholarship Chair, $180,000 was raised for members’ high school students through donations and a series of auctions at the conferences.

Presently teaching art for Adult Education, Carol continues her support of art education through scholarships presented to student teachers by the California Retired Teachers’ Association.
