    CUTV News Radio spotlights Maurice Gray Eldridge

    in Art

    Swarthmore, PA – .Maurice Gray Eldridge is the Vice Chair for the Chester Fund for Education and the Arts and former principal of the prestigious Duke Ellington School for the Arts. Over a career spanning five decades, Eldridge has empowered students through a strong focus on the arts at the center of a liberal arts education.
    “I happen to believe all kids, whatever they want to be when they grow up, will benefit from having the arts in their lives,” says Eldridge. “The arts are integrated into the curriculum of the school, which helps students learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, so they can begin to feel a part of a family, a community. We’re building a community inside a school.”
    Eldridge grew up in Washington DC in an era when the city like the rest of the country was segregated. When the Supreme Court issued its desegregation order for the nation in 1954, Eldridge was heading into the tenth grade.
    Eldridge in that same year was recruited into a progressive, integrated, and coed boarding school in New England, where he emgerged as a leader through his genuine commitment to the role the arts, theater, poetry, and literature can play in education. In 1979, Eldridge was named principal of the Duke Ellington School for the Arts, where he served for 10 years.
    In 2005, Eldridge was instrumental in establishing the Chester Charter School for the Arts in Chester, Pennsylvania, a K-12 arts school.

    Playing Make-Believe: An interview with fantasy/sci-fi author CJ Rutherford

    in Books

    Faeries and dragons and apocolypse - oh my! Come join Author Angie Martin as she interviews fantasy/sci-fi author CJ Rutherford. We'll talk aobut his writing career, his vast library of works, and maybe even talk about his pet... the one we're not supposed to discuss! It will be a great discussion with an amazing author!
    Angie Martin: bit.ly/thrillingbooks Marisa Oldham: bit.ly/lovestoriesauthor CJ Rutherford: www.cjrutherford.com
    CJ Bio: CJ Rutherford has always been a story teller, even if they started out in his mind only. He grew up on a farm in very rural Ireland, and was left pretty much to his own devices most of the time.
    So, he invented his own world, with fairies, trolls, and other mystical creatures.
    His stories stayed with him throughout his life, sometimes scrawled down on scraps of paper, and occasionally brought to life in a sketch (although he’s the first to admit what he drew and what you might see might not bear any similarity to each other.)
    Along came two daughters, and at last he had an outlet for his imagination. As the girls grew up they were enthralled by the characters and the worlds their father created. He even brought them to life in his fantasy world, and they never knew when he sat down to tell them their bed-time story, whether they would be fighting a dragon or playing with one.
    But time moves on, and daughters grow up, and soon enough, CJ needed another way to tell his tales.
    The rest, as they say, is history…or the future, depending on how you look at it.
