Everyone has a story to tell, and that includes members of our wonderful CDS community—alumni, teachers, staff, students and family members.
To preserve and share these stories, we've launched an initiative to collect audio recordings with our portable "Wildcat Tales" sound booth. The sound booth has been making its appearance at special events and will soon be traveling around campus. We'll share more information soon about where to find it and how to share YOUR story.
In the meantime, enjoy these recordings shared by members of the CDS community about their Carolina Day School experience.
