  •  Booker T. Washington HSPVA names Interim Artistic Director

    Dr. Scott Rudes, Principal of Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts announces the appointment of Lily Cabatu Weiss as Interim Artistic Director.

    Weiss, a 36 year veteran of the school, recently retired as Coordinator of the Dance Department. She will serve in a part-time role as a national search is conducted for a full-time artistic director for the 2015-2016 school year.

    Her duties as interim artistic director will include coordinating all interdisciplinary activities and functions for the school, articulating and implementing the school’s vision and mission statement across multiple stakeholder groups and supporting the administration and department chairs in realizing the original intent of BTWHSPVA – integrating artistic and academic abilities throughout all disciplines and ensuring that students and teachers work together towards the common learning goals unique to an arts-focused school.

    The school’s first artistic director, Dr. Paul Baker, also founded the school in 1976. His course, “Integration of Abilities,” is a foundational course which is included as part of the school’s curriculum. As interim artistic director, Weiss will assist in moving his revolutionary ideas forward in the context of 21st century learning.

    Dr. Rudes praised Mrs. Weiss for both her vision and dedication to the school. “Lily has proven over her almost four decades of service to the school that she is the ideal person to serve in this important role. I look forward to working with her in this new position as we propel the vision of our school forward and move through the national search process for a permanent artistic director.”

    In response to her appointment, Weiss stated “I am honored to take on the exciting challenge of Interim Artistic Director of Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing & Visual Arts for this school year. I look forward to supporting the legacy of the school as we explore best practices for collaboration, integration, and innovation, and as we continue on our path toward excellence.”
