19TH Annual Black History Month Contest Winners
At the 19TH Annual Black History Month Creative Expressions Awards Program sponsored by the New York Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.which was held on Sunday, February 8, 2015, Redemption Christian Academy received special recognition for having three winning student entries.
Paris Johnson, grade 7, received an award for her poem on Bessie Coleman who was born in 1896 and became the first African American female pilot. Khari Croley, grade 8, received an award for his artistic rendition of Benjamin Banneker, the inventor of America’s first clock and the co-designer of the layout of Washington, D.C. Denise Ratley, grade 11, received an award for her artistic rendition of Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play major league baseball in the modern era. What accentuates the accomplishments of these RCA students is that out of 280 contest entries from the Capital District, there were only 28 winners, and three of these winners are Redemption Christian Academy students.
The Annual Black History Month Creative Expressions contest received recognition from New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo. Angelicia A. Morris, the first and youngest African American female to serve as Executive Director of the Schenectady County Human Rights Commission, delivered an inspiring keynote speech at the awards program.
In addition, these three RCA students were asked to present their poetry and art at the 2015 Interagency Black History Month Celebration which was held at the Clarke Theater in the New York State Museum.
Redemption Christian Academy’s three students’ entries were published in newspapers, and videotaped and aired on radio and television. CONGRATULATIONS on your awards-- Paris, Khari, and Denise!
Cancer Treatment Breakthrough!
Dr. Douglas Mitchell, RCA’s Platinum supporter, pioneers the development of Sonodynamic Photodynamic Therapy for metastatic cancer.
Dear friend and RCA Supporter,
First of all, we would like to thank you for your ongoing support. Whether it was by buying baked goods, sending a periodic monetary donation, or any other intangible way, we want you to know that you've made a contribution to the success of the mission to develop excellence in our students. Many of these students would not have that opportunity if it were not for people like you.
Secondly, and most importantly, we want to make you aware of the following startling statistics:
According to the American Cancer Society, over a million and a half new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2013. Also in 2013, over a half million Americans are expected to die of cancer, which amounts to about 1,600 per day. It remains the second leading cause of death in the US, accounting for nearly 1 in every 4 deaths. (http://m.cancer.org/research/cancerfactsstatistics/cancerfactsfigures2013/index ) Regrettably, everyone knows someone who has been affected by this monstrous disease.
We are so excited to be able to give you some good news in this regards. We would like to share some information about a new cutting-edge breakthrough treatment for cancer. Dr. Douglas Mitchell, former Chancellor, Swinburne University of Technology, is a research scientist, successful businessman, and philanthropist. He is one of a very few living contemporary pioneers in the development of Sonodynamic Photodynamic Therapy, an innovative therapy for metastatic cancer. He has worked in this field since 2002 and operated one of the first clinics in the world to bring this effective and safe therapy to cancer patients.
