He radiates positive energy and endless creativity, and his biggest dream is to help young people with talent realize their own potential. His name is David Thebaud – or Tebo, as he is best-known in his native Haiti – and he arrived at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School on November 14, to meet once again with his biggest supporters.

As he did during his previous visit in 2014, Tebo spoke with students in French and Art classes at RFH. The students learned about Tebo’s creative process, life in present-day Haiti, and the challenges facing his art school, ELT. The students were especially eager to know more about ELT, whose full name in Creole – Espwa lavi pou Timoun – translates into “Hope for Children’s Lives.”
