The Education Outreach arm of the Celebrate America Show had a very successful beginning in 2013. CAS Founding Director, Brenda Anthony and Wilson Elementary School Principal, Sundee Ware, were instrumental in establishing the vision for this unique educational experience. Wilson and Mt. Logan Middle School participated the first year. Music teachers, Karen Teuscher and Tina Andrews, created lesson plans that were taught to participating 4th and 5th grades. Students learned the important role Big Band music from the Glenn Miller Era played during World War II -- how music helped build morale and hope. Students enjoyed learning songs, which they performed during the Education Outreach performance of the Celebrate America Show. Their excitement and enthusiasm can be described as "electric" as they sang with the orchestra and cast. They loved the music.
In 2014, Education Outreach expanded to also include Greenville, Hillcrest and Lewiston schools. The fun tradition of awarding one school the Uncle Sam traveling trophy was begun. The winning school displays Uncle Sam for a year - till the next Celebrate America Show, when he is passed on to the school with the best attendance and enthusiasm.
