NCSU Communication Summer Camps

Sanderson High School is partnering with North Carolina State University to support their efforts as they build a program in the field of communications.  Listed below is summer camp that will begin their new program.  


Our Camp’s Registration webpage  (http://communication.chass.ncsu.edu/academics/other_programs/cc/ccreg.php) contains all the relevant documents for download needed by both you and your students’ parents/guardians. There you will also find a downloadable poster and separate Camp Fact Sheet for promoting the camp. Our site also includes relevant information for schools administrators, parents, and students about the camp itself, sessions, and faculty. We will continue to add information to the site as we move closer to July 2015. The registration packet for parents / students is linked from the registration page, and includes the registration form itself, a liability waiver, code of conduct agreement, and transportation (drop off / pick-up) form. 

Once you have emailed your School Verification / Recommendation form to me, you may then send the link to the Registration page to parents so they can access the downloadable forms and learn more about the program by reviewing the Camp website.


Deadlines for the forms and tuition are posted on our website and indicated on the forms.


Again, our camp is being designed along the lines and with the help of long established and well respected camps run by the College of Engineering, College of Design and Department of English at North Carolina State University.


We are grateful for your assistance and realize our inaugural communication camp will not be successful without it. Rest assured that we are going to give your students an enlightening and rewarding experience as they explore and practice a world of endless possibilities—the world of communication.

UNC-CH Catalyst Conference for 9th-11th Graders
click to expand

Every year, the Catalyst Conference brings a selected group of 100 high school students from across North Carolina to UNC Chapel Hill for a weekend-long exploration of social justice issues affecting both America and the larger world. Through leadership and personal development sessions, we aim to empower participants so they can serve as catalysts for positive change in their own communities. The Catalyst Conference serves a vital need, as encouraging today’s youth to take an interest in national and worldly issues is vital to securing an educated and passionate group of future leaders. These 100 students will face a challenging task; they will be asked to view the world through the eyes of another and come to a realization of the underlying similarities that connect us all.


Catalyst Conference 2014 seeks to:

  • Give high school students the opportunity to build and learn from personal relationships that transcend racial, ethnic, religious, and gender boundaries.
  • Provide an open forum for discussion of community issues of social justice and equality through a series of workshops to educate students about diversity and social issues.
  • Empower students to combat the apathy and ignorance threatening the future of America’s youth through personal development sessions and leadership training.
  • Create a network of peer support between high school students and college Catalyst Conference counselors.
  • Transform our high school students into catalysts for positive social change and generate a vision of social harmony for the 21st century and beyond.


The Catalyst Conference is a great opportunity and learning experience for developing high school students. The conference will take place on the campus of UNC Chapel Hill February 20-Februrary 22, 2015. A $50 registration fee is required upon acceptance (DO NOT include this with the application) to the conference, which helps to offset the cost of housing and food for the entire weekend. As we do not wish to exclude those with a financial need, if you have an interested student who may not be financially able to pay the entrance fee, please notify us separately and we may be able to offer a scholarship. Only high school students in grades 9-11 are eligible for application. No seniors or students who have previously attended will be accepted. Applications must be submitted through Google forms by Saturday, November 15th at 5 PM. If a student is unable to submit the application electronically, please tell them to e-mailunccatalyst@gmail.com for a paper copy as soon as possible. Once they receive a paper copy, it must be post-marked 3 days prior to the application due date. The application can be found here.


The Catalyst Conference is part of a larger UNC-CH umbrella service organization known as Campus Y. Not only will students be exposed to social justice issues, they will also have a chance to explore the UNC-CH campus and learn more about the UNC-CH academic experience through interactions with their committee leaders and other volunteers in the Campus Y.  If you have any questions or comments, please email the Campus Y or the Catalyst Co-chairs (unccatalyst@gmail.com).

Sanderson Families

The NC Symphony has honored Sanderson High Choral Director Marshall Butler with the 2014 Maxine Swalin Award.

The award is presented annually to a NC music teacher who serves the community as a role model in music education, instills a love for music in children and inspires students to reach appropriately high musical standards. Butler was honored with a reception on October 4 at Meymandi Concert Hall prior to the NC Symphony’s “Yevgeny Sudbin Plays Rachmaninoff” concert.

The North Carolina Symphony’s Maxine Swalin Award for Outstanding Music Educator
is presented annually to a North Carolina music teacher who:
  • Makes a lasting difference in the lives of students of all abilities and backgrounds
  • Serves the community in an exemplary manner as a role model in music education
  • Instills a love for music in children
  • Inspires students to reach appropriately high musical standards
This $1000 recognition and award honors Maxine Swalin who, along with her husband Dr. Benjamin Swalin, Symphony music director from 1939-1972, raised funds from the General Assembly to establish the children’s concert division in 1945. This program, which continues to bring free live concerts to school children across the state, forms the core of one of the most extensive music education programs conducted by any U.S. orchestra.


Congratulations to Marshall Butler for receiving this award!

From Dr. Decker
If you have participated in the No Fuss fundraiser to help support our student’s curriculum, I would like to thank you.  If not, I would like to encourage you.  I am looking to add these PTSA funds to other resources that will come from a passed bond referendum focused on instructional technology.  Your donations will indeed provide additional highly engaging instructional technology tools for our students in the classrooms.  Once these funds are available, I will further communicate with you once these purchases are made and equipment installed.  We are seeking $30,000 from this PTSA fundraiser.  Currently we have received 45% of the funds that have already been received.  I would like to thank you for your continued support!
