Chicago Public School Principal for a Day Honors Eli’s Cheesecake with a 2008 Outstanding School Partnership Award








Mayor Richard M. Daley created Principal for a Day in 1998 as a way to involve Chicago’s civic and business community in individual schools throughout Chicago. This year over 1,600 Chicagoans served as Principals for a Day. Above, Mayor Daley congratulates Eli’s Marc Schulman on Eli’s long term partnership with the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences and being recognized with a
Outstanding Partnership Award








The Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences has over 100 Award Winning Partnerships. The recognition for Eli’s Cheesecake Partnership with CHSAS was just example of the commitment of the faculty, staff and students to being great community partners.

Powell IV, Marc Schulman and David Gilligan, Chief High School Officer celebrate the recognition for CHSAS–the only high school
receiving a partnership award.









Marc Schulman thanks David Gilligan, former principal at CHSAS, and now head of all Chicago High Schools, for his continued support of the students and programs at CHSAS. Since many of Marc’s conversations at home involve CHSAS and agriculture, Maureen Schulman congratulates Marc on being recognized for his long term commitment to the school.








The CHSAS Advisory Board has over 50 members who work with the
school throughout the year. Advisory Board Co-chair Rouhy Shalabi, is also a
CHSAS parent and a Chicago Park District Commissioner and works with Marc and
Lucille Shaw and William Hook to expand partnerships and opportunities for the
students. On the right, Marc was honored to meet Adam C. Powell IV, the grandson
of noted New York Congressman Adam Clayton Powell, who is the namesake of a
Chicago Public School. This was the first time that Adam C. Powell IV had
visited the school and attended Principal for a Day.
