    Students Share New Scholarship

    Honoring Teacher Tracy Pope 

    In memory of a devoted teacher who taught thousands of Cabrillo students over her long career, two students will share the First Annual Tracy Pope Memorial Academic Excellence Scholarship that’s been established by her family.

    Selected by Cabrillo educators to share the $1,000 award,  two outstanding eighth-grade students learned of their scholarship at the eighth-grade graduation ceremony on Wednesday, June 1, held at Santa Clara High School.

    Tracy Pope died on October 11, 2020, after heart valve surgery complications. She died in the intensive care unit of a local hospital, where she had spent more than three months trying to recover her failing health. She was 58.

    She taught in Santa Clara Unified School District for 30 years, the last 28 at Cabrillo. Colleagues built a permanent planter adorned with hearts last year to remember Tracy. It graces the campus friendship memorial area that honors Cabrillo employees who helped make a difference.

    Each year from now on, up to three Cabrillo students selected by teachers will share the $1,000 award provided by Tracy’s husband of 28 years, Mike Myslinski. The scholarship honors Tracy’s devotion to her students and her strong belief in the creative power of public education. 

    Her Cabrillo legacy includes launching a student literary magazine, editing the yearbook for many years, and creating a journalism class (she worked as a newspaper reporter before teaching and covered the education beat). A graduate of UCLA and a cancer survivor, Tracy also served as president of United Teachers of Santa Clara, the union representing all educators in her district. 

    Her daughter Madeleine, 27, is working toward getting a credential to teach at the elementary grade level.

    About Us

    Cabrillo was originally opened as an intermediate school in 1962. It was closed in 1982 because of a decline in district enrollment, accompanied by a decision to house all middle school students in the district on two other campuses. Ten years later, a projected upturn in the student population, along with a desire to provide students with smaller, more personalized middle schools, resulted in reopening the campus. As Cabrillo rededicated itself to overall excellence, emphasis has been placed on science, writing across the curriculum, and technology.

    Our student population is culturally diverse, and almost one-third of our students receive free or reduced price lunches. The occupational and educational levels of the parents run a gamut similar to our ethnicity. Approximately 10% of our population receive support from special education services, and about 25% of Cabrillo students are being educated in a language other than the one native to their homes. Diversity makes Cabrillo rich, as students have an opportunity to get a world-view within the confines of a dozen or so acres. The Cabrillo School Community is committed to providing students with a flexible and creative instructional program that employs sound educational practices supported by mutual respect, the acceptance of diversity, and the shared responsibility of school, home and community. The Cabrillo mission is compatible with the district’s intent to, “Prepare every student to succeed in an ever-changing world.”
