Meet the Founder

Suzann C Henry

A Philadelphian, who graduated from The Philadelphia High School for Girls as a member of Who’s Who among High School students, Treble Clef choir and Gospel choir where she helped direct. She then enrolled in North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in Greensboro, NC where she graduated with honors and attained a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies.

While working full-time at Vanguard as a Registered Representative, Suzann Christine Henry wanted to make a positive difference in the community by developing a program that could empower and educate adolescents about the fine arts. As a mentor and officer of the Grace chapter of Teenshop and a former member and Junior Counselor of the Young Performers Theatre Camp, Ms. Henry knew first hand how much of an impact being involved in enrichment activities and learning the arts could help students achieve goals and build self-esteem. Ms. Henry then begin to create a business plan that would help bring forth her vision to create a place like SCH CAPA that will give students the chance to maximize their artistry.

Suzann has always had an interest in the Performing Arts and working with the youth. She participated in many programs for the Arts in the city of Philadelphia including, the Young Performers Theatre Camp, The All-City Choir of Philadelphia, and the City of Philadelphia’s Art Summer Camp. She serves as a volunteer and Treasurer for the Grace chapter of Teenshop Inc., a nonprofit Organization for teenage girls with goals. During college she served as a member of the NC A&T Fellowship Gospel Choir, and volunteered as a mentor and advisor of the Eastern Guilford High School Step Team and the Heart of the Matter Program founded by Sharonda Eggleton.

In June of 2010, Suzann founded and incorporated SCH Creative & Performing Arts, Inc., a nonprofit organization geared to educate adolescents on how to maximize their artistry. She felt the need to give back to her community through something that was dear to her heart. Forming this organization was one way to keep children involved in something positive and it would allow children to build self-confidence and self-esteem. Suzann’s hope and prayer is to reach out and empower as many children in the Philadelphia area as possible, who have an interest in something creative and that they will be able to reach their full potential in their creativity.
