CEF Fall Innovation Grantees

For the first time this year, Cabrillo Education Foundation (CEF) is awarding 16 $1,000 Faculty/Student Innovation Grants designed to inspire out-of-the-box approaches to student success. ( At the Fall deadline, CEF chose to award two of these grants to teachers at HMBHS.

We are excited to announce that Christina Yeakley and Lane Mullin both submitted ideas that offer students a unique educational experience.  CEF will be helping to seed fund, Drum Fit, a new high intensity workout for all freshmen and sophomore students. Research shows that music and movement help students build brain connections, boost creativity, and alleviate stress.  In addition, CEF will be supporting the student initiated Creative Writing Club by funding a printed anthology called The Muse.  The students will engage in writing and editing creative works to produce a final printed bound publication.

CEF currently has 11 Innovation Grants available to award this Spring, 5 of which are specifically for Student /Teacher collaborations. Applications are available online ( and deadline is April 1, 2017. We are committed to inspiring cutting edge transformations in teaching and technology in each of the CUSD schools.
