54 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Nov. 15 - Nov. 21, 2002 New Delmarva Christian High School plans open house Nov. 16 A new Christian high school is coming to Sussex County. In April of 1999, a group of Sussex County educators, business peo- ple, pastors, and parents came to- gether to form Delmarva Christ- ian Schools Inc. to address the is- sue of high school education for area youth. After extensive re- search and numerous meetings, Delmarva Christian High School was formed. Delmarva Christian High School will be located in George- town, the geographic center of Sussex County, and will be dedi- cated to providing qualitf aca- demic and technical education with a Christ-centered focus. This is not a charter school, but a pri- vately funded education facility with the overall objective to edu- cate youth with the knowledge of how to apply Biblical principles to their daily lives. The doors of Delmarva Christ- ian High School will be open to students in grades 9-12 for the 2003-2004 school year, Ground has been broken on the 170,000 square foot building to be built on Route 9 and Airport Road in Georgetown. Bus service will be made available to all those from the Delmarva area who wish to attend. In preparation for next school year, Delmarva Christian High Scho.ol is conducting an open house from I0 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sat- urday, Nov. 16, at the CHEER Center on Route 9 and Sand Hill Delaware Mentoring Council gearing up for recruitment drive in Sussex County Faced with an ever-increasing demand for mentors, Delaware's schools are gearing up for a re- cruitment drive. A recent survey conducted by the Delaware Mentoring Council shows a substantial increase in the number of mentors needed statewide. More than 16,000 school students have been identi- fied by staff as being candidates to be matched with a positive adult role model, up from approx- imately 10,000 the year before. In Sussex County alone, the need is estimated at 4,246 youth. "Even though it sounds intimi- dating, I actually view that as a very positive sign," said Delaware Mentoring Council director Theresa Clower. "Our research has shown a steady increase in the number of students identified as needing a mentor. To me, that shows how many new schools and organizations have discov- ered the power of mentoring." Another issue, according to Philip C. Showell Elementary School mentor coordinator Jessi- ca Paine, is the loss of mentors from school year to school year. "It's really just a war of attrition," Paine said. "Each year we have a handful of volunteers who move away or change jobs. We also lose a number of them who follow Honor rolls Continued from page 53 Dawn Kneipp, Confine Luzak, Hi- lary Merlo, Veronica Mest, Bailey Neuhaus, Joshua Nicholson, Ann Plowman, Leigh Redefer, Ashley Robinson, Victoria Rodriguez, Jessica Rosenberg, Zachary Sadler, Dustin Schell, Lori Sim- mons, Jessica Tewalt, Kara Voss, Karissa Warren, Lacy William, Devon Zeigler, Evan Zinser.

Still, Nick Whitehouse, coordi- nator at East Millsboro Elemen- tary, said the up side is that the awareness of mentoring is at an all-time high. In fact, he said, ear- ly fall is traditionally a prime re- cruiting season. "A lot of it is word of mouth," Whitehouse said. "People are so excited to be coming back and working with the kids again, they end up bring- ing friends with them." According to Clower, the coun- cil continues to sponsor individ- ual mentor recruitment, but is now working to foster sustainable partnerships with businesses, churches and civic organizations. "From now through the end of January, our organizations will be especially focused on soliciting commitments from a variety of organizations. We are primarily interested in mentor volunteers, however, organizations can con- tribute to mentoring programs through donations and grants. Al- so, ve will be seeking commit- ments from employers to grant an hour of leave to employees who volunteer to mentor once a week.
