Joe Vulopas believes in empowering students and educators. Joe, a McCaskey graduate, is the Executive Director of Aevidum. He is on a leave of absence from teaching English at Cocalico High School in Lancaster PA, where he taught for 15 years. In 2003, following the suicide of a sophomore at his school, Joe rallied students to raise awareness about depression and suicide. Under his guidance, the students formed Aevidum, an award-winning education initiative that empowers students to be advocates for themselves and for their peers.
