CCDS is pleased to announce the selection of Bill Schumacher, CCDS Class of 1974, as 2016-2017 Distinguished Alumnus and Pamela A. Shaw as the 2016-2017 Honorary Alumna.

Bill Schumacher and Pamela A. Shaw were nominated by CCDS community members who had this to say about them…

DISTINGUISHED ALUMNUSBill Schumacher, CCDS Class of 1974
“Bill was selected for his outstanding business acumen, leadership and guidance while serving on the CCDS Board, First term July 2012 to June 2015, and second term July 2015 until June 2018. His contributions to the Board, Head of Finance Committee, and Search Committee team member prove his commitment to the excellence of the school. Bill’s motto has always been, ” Canton Country Day School is a great place.” He and his family have been great supporters of our school; his wife Beth, (2015 Honorary Alumna) has chaired/co chaired the Great Escapes Auction for the past 12 years. Both children are graduates of CCDS, Will, Class of 2010 and Katie, Class of 2015. Bill (and his family) is truly committed and very philanthropic with Canton Country Day School, the faculty, staff, and students. His selfless commitment speaks volumes to our CCDS mission.”

HONORARY ALUMNA — Pamela A. Shaw
Ms. Shaw is the longest serving Head of School for Canton Country Day School, and she is truly devoted to the school’s vision and its students. “Pam has never sacrificed the school’s vision in the name of hard times. Pam has focused on the well being of individual students.” Many of the programs that Canton Country Day have today were implemented by Ms. Shaw: The Outdoor Classroom, with Dedication held on September 30, 2005, CCDS Grandparents Beanie Cougar Club, Pinwheels for Peace, International Pot-Luck Dinner/A Taste of CCDS, The First Lego League Robotics Competition and a 1 to 1 Laptop Program. Always staying dedicated, Ms. Shaw has kept CCDS focused on the well being of our school. Ms. Shaw will be stepping away this June 2017, after serving 15 years as Head of School. As one nominator stated, “Pam graduates from CCDS with honors and with the privilege to have served it so well.”

Please join CCDS in congratulating both Bill and Pam.  The awards ceremony is scheduled for 6:00 pm on Tuesday, May 23rd at the Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography, 520 Cleveland Avenue NW, Canton, OH 44702.

2015 Alumni Soccer Game

The annual CCDS Soccer Team v. Parents and Alumni was on Thursday, October 22, 2015, from 4 – 5 p.m. We had a small but mighty crowd for the CCDS Soccer Team v The “Old People” game. The final score was 7:3 – old people winning!!  Near the end of the second half only seven adults remained, (see back row of first photo) due to jobs and school commitments of some alums, but the “old people” still won the game!  There were some really funny moments during the game.  Everyone had fun. Go to the Canton Country Day School’s Facebook page to see the videos.
