A Rock to Rely On

Communities In Schools of Wilmington

All In For Students Award Recipient 2011: The award is presented to site coordinators who demonstrate an unwavering commitment to students. With acts of love and transformation, these Heroes are the best at what they do.

In a school that many feared would close its doors, one woman stepped forward to help. With boundless energy and rock-steady reliability, Rebecca Stahl shows her students how to overcome their greatest obstacles. When East Side Charter School in Wilmington, Del., had to make major changes to prevent being shut down, including changing their calendar, hiring a new principal and laying off  a third of the staff, Rebecca remained an island of calm for the students during the tumultuous time. Her positive nature and focused energy helped students through the transition, and they continue to confide both their fears and achievements in her. As one project coordinator at the school said, “The students of East Side Charter are happy and excited to see Rebecca every day. Her students do not think of Rebecca as just another staff member. They know she truly believes in them and is their number one supporter.”
