Ardrey Kell bids farewell to graduates The words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Lil Wayne inspire Class of 2019 by Justin Vick email@example.com
CHARLOTTE – Many thoughts and conversations raced through Barry Switzer's head as the Ardrey Kell High School principal thought about what he'd say to the graduating Class of 2019. “What does a high school senior want to hear? Will they even listen to what I have to say, having never listened to what I have to say?” he said jokingly. Switzer settled on inspiring the 700-some graduates June 8 at the Bojangles' Coliseum
with quotes from their classmates, which were equal parts motivational and practical. Ardrey Kell graduates have proven to be wise. The top 25 seniors had grade point averages ranging from 4.5 to 4.67. The class earned 261 academic scholarships, totaling nearly $11.3 million. About 95.6% of graduates will head to colleges, universities or the military. Outside of the classroom, the sports program won the Wells Fargo Cup, as well as see GRADS, Page 6A

Ardrey Kell student competes in Jeopardy! Teen Tournament CHARLOTTE – Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools posted a photo of Teagan O’Sullivan with “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek on Instagram a few days ago, telling its 32,000 followers the Ardrey Kell High School student will compete on the syndicated quiz show. It happened to be the first post on Teagan’s Instagram feed when she opened the social media app. “This caught me … very off guard,” she replied to the post. While the moment was surreal for Teagan, it also made her “Jeopardy!” experience feel more real. She makes her “Jeopardy!” debut at 7 p.m. June 17 on WCNCTV (NBC). She was one of just two high school freshmen competing in the two-week teen tournament.
“Jeopardy!” has been on in the O’Sullivan household for as long as Teagan can remember, but she’s watched it since third grade. She’s good at retaining random information. She’s especially strong at history and pop culture. “Teagan’s love of geography and history started at an early age,” said Teagan’s mother, Maura O’Sullivan. “She knew all the state capitals by the age of 5 and has extensive knowledge about the presidents and their families.” Teagan has competed nationally in history bee and quiz bowl competitions as a student at Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy. She did so well in an online tryout, “Jeopardy!” invited her to Washington, D.C. for an in-person audition. Teagan and her family traveled to California in December for the taping of the tournament.
Aug. 27: CMS opens with new boundaries This fall was especially significant for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools because 87 schools opened with new boundaries or magnet programs approved by the school board in May 2017. For example, Dilworth and Sedgefield elementary schools were combined with kindergarten through second grade attending Dilworth and third through fifth grades going to Sedgefield. Northeast Middle opened with a computer science and coding magnet program.

Aug. 28: School board gives ultimatum to towns In response to the state granting Matthews, Mint Hill, Cornelius and Huntersville the authority to open or manage charter schools, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Board of Education passed the Municipal Concerns Act.

Charlotte City Council adopts $2.6 billion budget CHARLOTTE – Charlotte City Council adopted a $2.6 billion fiscal year 2020 budget on June 13 with no tax increase. The budget enhances city government’s goal of becoming a more collaborative, responsive organization focused on providing high-quality services in a cost-effective and accountable manner. “City Manager Marcus Jones and Team Charlotte have created a citywide budget that focuses on the people of Charlotte and keeps our city affordable, while still fulfilling the needs of a growing city,” Mayor Vi Lyles said. Tariq Bokhari, who represents south Charlotte, commended staff on addressing things like tree planting, economic development and police

salaries. He noted how the budget overhauls how government operates, moving from vertical silos to horizontal cross-departmental views that saved $5 million. “It was really just an incredible job,” Bokhari said. “Doing all that in a revenue-neutral manner that requires no property tax increase is quite frankly a testament to the quality of the staff and what can be done.” The city outlined its budget in five themes: Well-Managed Government • Adopting a budget that aligns with city council priorities, including neighborhood development, transportation and planning, and
economic development. • Remaining structurally balanced with a $2.6 billion budget. • Maintaining a revenue-neutral property tax rate of 34.81 cents per $100 assessed valuation. Recognition of Team Charlotte • Providing a minimum pay increase of $2,080, or $1 per hour, for all general employees earning less than $69,333 per year and who have a positive performance review to help address upward mobility in the organization. • Providing a 3% combined pay increase see BUDGET, Page 6A

Medical team helps performs surgeries in Panama CHARLOTTE – In three and a half days, a medical team made up of 50 providers from OrthoCarolina, Atrium Health and Novant Health performed 60 total hip and knee replacements on 54 patients on a recent mission to Panama. This is the largest number of joint replacements performed to date since Operation Walk Carolinas took its first trip to Cuba in 2017. While in Panama, the Operation Walk Carolinas medical team also hosted professional education training for local physicians about advanced orthopedic treatments and care. Specialized medical care is rare in Panama, meaning people there have relatively little or no access to life-changing surgeries such as hip and knee replacements. Hendrick Motorsports and Hendrick Aviation provided transportation for the 2019 Panama mission, along with additional volunteers. Visit www.opwalkcarolinas.org for details.
United Way gives $26.4M CHARLOTTE – United Way of Central Carolinas announced the investment of $26.4 million in communities across the Charlotte region, supporting more than 100 programs and initiatives that are strengthening neighborhoods, boosting economic mobility and providing a safety net for people in need. Made possible by corporate and individual donors, the investment includes $17.7 million for UWCC’s community impact strategy – with funding for its United Neighborhoods, Unite Charlotte and Impact Grants programs. It also includes $8.7 million for community agencies as directed by donors. “We know change won’t happen in isolation, so we are thankful to have the ability to make a collective impact through the efforts of hundreds of dedicated organizations and thousands of individuals,” UWCC President and CEO Laura Clark said.

school construction in Charlotte, Pineville and Davidson. Leaders from the towns and CMS have met a few times since to discuss issues pertaining to enrollment. Sept. 14: Hurricane puts dent on school calendar Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools closed school Sept. 13 and 14 in anticipation of Hurricane Florence and didn’t’ resume school until Sept. 18. Some parents complained about schools opening when some areas of the county didn’t have power. A handful of schools, including South Mecklenburg High, served as evacuation centers for hundreds of people. Oct. 22: CMS recognizes top principals Mark Bosco and Tracey Harrill were among six finalists for Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools Principal of the Year. Bosco, who leads Myers Park High, was named Central 2 Learning Community Principal of the Year, while Harrill, who works at Providence High, earned Southeast Learning Community Principal of the Year. Oct. 29: Student killed at Butler High A fight between two Butler High students turned deadly as freshman Jatwan Cuffie allegedly shot and killed sophomore Bobby McKeithen before the start of school. After the shooting, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools worked to strengthen security at schools, as well as improve communications with parents when such events occur. Jan. 9: Providence Day closes campaign Providence Day closed the largest capital campaign in school history after raising $27.8 million from 2013 to 2018. The campaign led to the opening of a welcome center, an academic building, a parking deck and its first endowed chair position.

the local communities where they live and work,” said Pat Riley, Allen Tate Companies president and CEO. “Quality of life is tied to relocation decisions by companies and individuals. Tate Cares allows us to make a difference," Allen Tate agents and employees have contributed more than $5.22 million in 22 years through Tate Cares.
March 23: Catholic goes all in with arts Charlotte Catholic High School is making a huge investment in the arts with plans to open a fine arts center on its campus. The private school kicked off a $23 million capital campaign for a space that will include a 650-seat auditorium, band room, drama classroom and dance studio. The building starts construction in December 2020 and opens in 2022. March 26: Wilcox proposes $1.6 billion budget Clayton Wilcox, superintendent of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, introduced a $1.6 billion budget, asking the county to increase its funding of the district by 15.2%. Wilcox framed the ask in terms of investing in equity, people and support. He wanted to increase salaries for staff, as well as add coun-

selors, psychologists and social workers. May 4: Carmel Christian reflects on history The private school formed 25 years ago after parents with children in Carmel Wee School wanted to continue their educational and faith journeys at Carmel. It now educates 940 students, including more than 330 in high school. Carmel Christian celebrated with a silver anniversary gala. May 8: CMS taps Tuttle as top teacher People forget that Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is one of the county’s largest employers with around 19,000 staffers. So being named the top teacher is a big deal. Kimberly Tuttle, who teaches language arts at Levine Middle College High School in Matthews, won this year’s honor in part for teaching the whole child. Tyler Erb, of Community House Middle School, was one of six finalists. June 3: Charlotte Latin says goodbye to leader Charlotte Latin’s head Hawk is leaving the nest for retirement. Staff honored outgoing Headmaster Arch McIntosh Jr. with a reception, celebrating his 18 years of service. Seven months earlier, school trustees named The Leadership Center on campus after McIntosh. June 4: Rea Farms will be partial magnet After months of engaging with the community, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools decided to make the future K-8 school at Rea Farms a partial magnet program, with 70% of the seats assigned based on home school attendance. Sean Strain, who represents the Rea Farms area, advocated for a full magnet, but was unsuccessful. Some parents worry being forced into a K-8 would lead to limited course, club and sports offerings.

JEOPARDY (continued from page 1A)
Her parents, Michael and Maura O’Sullivan, as well as her younger sisters, Ruari and Catherine, were part of the studio audience. “There were honestly a lot of emotions,” Maura said of watching her daughter compete on the show. “They really did a good job to make it be a very enjoyable experience, but I was actually on the edge of my seat, as well. It was a great experience for all of us.” Though the stakes of “Jeopardy!” are much higher than a quiz bowl or history bee, Teagan said the show’s staff was very supportive and helped ease some of the stress. Families in town for the teen tournament stayed at the same hotel. The show transported all the teens without their families from the hotel to the studio, giving them an opportunity to get to know each other. “You don’t feel like it’s a super competitive atmosphere that pits people against each other,” Teagan said. “We all kind of became friends. We were only together for two days, but we were always together for those two days. I just got to know them really well. Everybody was really nice. We’re all still in touch.” “Jeopardy!” has been a mainstay in American homes for 35 years, but the quiz show has seen increased popularity this year due the game play and dominance of contestant James Holz-

hauer and host Alex Trebek’s pancreatic cancer battle. Trebek shared news of his diagnosis with fans in March. The show’s teen tournament was filmed in December, so the O’Sullivans didn’t notice anything wrong with the host during the taping. One thing Teagan didn’t realize until the taping was how Trebek interacts with the audience during commercials. And though she’s no stranger to buzzers, given her quiz bowl experience, she had to adjust to the game show’s buzzer system, which blocks contestants that try to buzz in while Trebek reads the clues. “It’s kind of weird watching the show after you’ve been
through the experience,” Teagan said. “It is definitely something I would do again because it was fun.”
Random Teagan O’Sullivan trivia The O’Sullivans are from Boston, where Teagan was born. This gives Teagan an edge when it comes to sports trivia. Some of her favorite TV shows include “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation.” She’s always enjoyed comedies, but she’s just now started watching dramas like “The West Wing” and “ER.” Teagen has an uncle that appeared on “Jeopardy!” several years ago.
CHARLOTTE – Leaders at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools heard first hand how Turning Point Academy changes lives from students that shared their experiences with the alternative school during the June 4 school board meeting. The academy redirects student behavior through programs that build character, as well as academic and social growth. One student explained how she had been assigned to Turning Point for 40 days for not being able to control her anger at her home school, Phillip O. Berry Academy of Technology. Smaller class sizes allowed her to get more one-on-one help with her assignments, which has led to higher grades. “I wanted to prove to the world that I'm not my mistakes, and if I let my mistakes define me, then I will live a miserable life,” she said, noting underneath her aggressive behavior lies a kind girl that loves to sing and spend time with her family. Another student explained how the teachers at Turning Point don't judge students, but encourage them to reach their potential. “My first day at Turning Point, I thought I had to stay to myself and focus to get through,” he said. “But I learned that the environment is so
welcoming, I had to open up.” Shanique Lee is not only a high school teacher at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, but also a doctoral student at UNC Charlotte. She's spent several hours over the past year volunteering at Turning Point. “Since my very first visit in August, I've been exposed to a welcoming environment that holds its students to high academic and behavioral standards of excellence,” Lee said. Most of her time has been spent in the entrepreneurship class of Sherree Cox, whom Lee described as a phenomenal and dedicated teacher. Lee lauded Cox for tapping into students' interests to guide their success. “They were consistently engaged and went above and beyond to meet Ms. Cox's expectations,” Lee said. Antoinette Rochester, another UNC Charlotte student, didn't have alternative schools in her home state, so it was educational to see one in action. “I was pleasantly surprised by how much the faculty takes time to individually help every one of the students,” Rochester said. “Sometimes you think you have all these students coming from different schools and teachers won't be able to give that one-on-one help, but the faculty at TPA made it their mission and were dedicated to that.”

attracted 52 athletic scholarships. Theater students garnered eight Blumey nominations, including a win for best musical for the second straight year. Students in band, chorus and orchestra received superior and excellent ratings. Switzer also noted how students gave back. About 235 seniors were inducted into the Royal Order of the Purple Knights, logging over 28,650 community service hours. All of this contributes to an environment that garners the attention of the U.S. News and World Report, which ranked Ardrey Kell as the number one high school
in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Valedictorian Anik Patel, who will attend UNC-Chapel Hill, referenced the words of 19th century author Ralph Waldo Emerson and 21st century rapper Lil Wayne to inspire his classmates. Patel encouraged the Class of 2019 to take pride in what they can contribute, but also to remember the people who helped them along the way. He also told them to take a moment to remember how far they've come and to think about how far they can go. Senior Class President Luke Caggiano referenced his “good friend,” President Theodore Roosevelt, telling graduates, “No one cares how much you know until they

With Father's Day just around the corner, most of us are busy planning the perfect present for Dad. The usual gifts of cards, neckties and watches are nice ideas, but the greatest gift you could give your father is helping him achieve lasting health. The best way to show love to your dad on Father's Day is by making a meaningful contribution to his life. Let your dad know that you love him, and that's why you want him to live a long, healthy and happy life. Introducing him to the healthful and delicious dishes from the Mediterranean region is a great way to do just that. You’ve likely heard of the Mediterranean diet, which was recently named best overall diet of 2019 and has been shown to help extend your lifespan by roughly a decade. This eating pattern has also been linked to preventing heart attacks, strokes, certain cancers, diabetes and reducing inflammation. It may even help lower your risk of dementia by a third. Here’s a Mediterranean recipe to share with Dad and the rest of the family: Moroccan-Style Grilled Tuna (Samak bil chermoula) Gluten-free Serves: 4 | Serving Size: 1 Tuna Steak | Prep Time: 5 Minutes, Plus 1 Hour Marinating Time and 5 Minutes Resting Time | Cook Time: 10 Minutes When we think of Moroccan cuisine, lamb, couscous and tajines usually come to mind. Bordering both the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean, however, Morocco offers a wonderful array of flavors from the sea. On our culinary tours to Morocco, we usually stop in a few of the Moroccan coastal towns such as Casablanca, Essaouira and Tangier in order to sample the North African seafood delights as well as the breathtaking towns themselves. This recipe features chermoula sauce, a Moroccan classic that tastes great on both chicken and fish. If you prefer to make this dish in the oven instead of grilling it, simply place the fish in a greased baking dish, top
with chermoula, cover with aluminum foil, and bake in a 425°F oven for 20–25 minutes, or until cooked through. 2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro 2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 6 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt 1/2 tsp paprika Juice and zest of 1 lemon 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 4 (3 1/2-oz) tuna steaks In a medium bowl, mix the cilantro, parsley, garlic, salt, paprika and lemon juice and zest together. Whisk in the olive oil. Place the fish in a glass baking dish and pour half of the chermoula sauce over the top. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to marinate for 1 hour. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Grill the fish, turning once, until firm (about 6 to 8 minutes). Transfer to a platter, spread with the remaining chermoula sauce, and let stand for 5 minutes to absorb the flavors.

Matthews Playhouse revives historical comedy for summer show by Aaron Worley Contributor
To someone who has never heard of a “farce” in theater, the word itself might sound ridiculous and a little weird. However, that is exactly what the director intends for people to think when they put on such a show. It is an exaggeration of a play, a not-so-subtle mocking of it and the characters in traditional musicals, comedies and dramas. Matthews Playhouse’s latest production, “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” is no exception to the history of farces and aims to show the audience how a play dating back to nearly 300 BC can be revived in modern times. Set in those early times, the play talks about a Roman slave, Pseudolus, who aims to be freed by helping his master’s son, Hero, with his love life. The play incorporates slapstick comedy, exaggerated characters and unrealistic scenarios. The role of Miles Gloriosus (Swaggering Soldier) will be played by Nick Southwick, a four-year veteran at Matthews Playhouse. He has acted in plays such as “Oklahoma” and “Joseph,” taking on different roles at Central Piedmont Community College, as well. He took on a variety of personas there, including mean-spirited and humorous ones. To prepare for this role, Southwick said his method was a little unorthodox compared to most. He decided to separate himself from any other incarnations of the play, such as when it was performed on Broadway. He then made a list of actions he intended to try with the character. Once this experiment was complete, it was then that he looked at how others portrayed the character and what attributes he could use in his own interpretation. He said this role really challenged him in thinking what the director

was going for and how he could play off his strengths to satisfy the audience. What makes this production different from most, he said, is that since it is a farce, the characters are named by their attributes (i.e. tough Roman soldier and clumsy servant). One of his former mentors once told him, “You’re only as good as the obscurity of the inspiration that you steal from.” The saying inspired Southwick not to dwell on completely revamping the character but transforming the character with the mannerisms and qualities of past performers while adding his spin on things. Tintinabula, one of the courtesans, will be played by Allie Hardin, who has been acting with Matthews Playhouse since high school. Her acting credits include “Miracle on 34th Street, “Zombie Prom” (which she considers one of her most entertaining roles) and “Aladdin.” Hardin used to play serious
characters but admits that being in goofy roles allows her to grow as a person, both on and offstage, as she is forced out of her comfort zone. One of her previous roles had her cast as “dumb blonde,” which gave her the chance to channel energy onstage for the stereotype and give herself a sense of accomplishment that she could be well-versed, even in such a simple role. Southwick and Hardin agree that anyone who has never seen a farce before will know what the characters are from the jump. Want to go? Matthews Playhouse presents “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” continues at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, as well as 2 p.m. Sundays, through June 23, at the Matthews Community Center. Tickets cost $22 for adults and $19 for students and seniors. Visit www.matthewsplay house.com for details.

meets his now-grown daughter and finally reconciles with Magnolia. Spanning three generations of hope and heartbreak, “Show Boat” has established itself as an essential contribution to the American musical theater canon. June 21-29: “Jekyll & Hyde” Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic thriller, “Jekyll & Hyde” is the gripping tale of a brilliant mind gone horrifically awry, set to a powerful pop-rock score by Frank Wildhorn with book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse. In an attempt to cure his ailing father’s mental illness by separating “good” from “evil” in the human personality, talented physician Dr. Jekyll inadvertently creates an alternate personality of pure evil, dubbed Mr. Hyde, who wreaks murderous havoc on London. As his fiancée, Emma, grows increasingly fearful for her betrothed, a prostitute, Lucy, finds herself dangerously involved with both the doctor and his alterego. Struggling to control Hyde before he takes over for good, Jekyll must race to find a cure for the demon he has created in his own mind. July 5-13: “Beehive: the 60s Musical Revue” “Beehive” is the ultimate celebration of 1960s female empowerment. Featuring such timeless classics as “My Boyfriend’s Back” and “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Beehive” recalls the days of miniskirts, transistor radios and flower power. Told from the perspective of six young women who came of age in this decade, these young ladies look back on a host of issues, ranging from their first Beehive Dance to the challenges we faced as a nation – all accomplished by a vast array of the most celebrated and memorable songs of the era.
July 19-27: “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” On the night of his mother’s funeral, middle-class Englishman Monty Navarro learns an incredible secret: he is an aristocrat – if he can only find a way to prevent his relatives from inheriting the earldom first. Buoyed along by love for two different women, the stunning and self-centered Sibella and the pious and witty Phoebe, Monty takes on his mission. In “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder,” the audience is treated to Edwardian style, classic farce,and stunning operatic singing. “Gentleman’s Guide” combines the best of the past with a contemporary sensibility and humor that earned it the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical. July 3-13: Children’s Show: “Madagascar (TYA)” Alex the lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York’s Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends – Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo – have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape – with the help of some prodigious penguins – to explore the world. Filled with outlandish characters, adventure galore and an upbeat score, “Madagascar (TYA)” will leave audiences with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!” Want to go? Tickets are available for $19 and $22, with tickets for children under the age of 15 available for $10. Tickets for the children’s show, “Madagascar (TYA),” cost $12 for adults and $8 for kids. Parking is free for all shows. Call 704-330-6534 or visit www.tix. cpcc.edu for tickets.
