From the Superintendent
Today was our annual Career Day here at school. Mrs. Gayle Mayfield, our guidance counselor, did an outstanding job in assembling a group of interesting speakers. This year’s group included Candice King, CPA from Totherow, Haile, and Welch PLLC, Andrea Porter, RN, and Brad Whitson, Physical Therapist, from Amedisys Home Health Care, Brianna Zuber, Ponda Armstrong, and Aaron Cole, graduate students form the biology department at Tennessee Tech, Dr. DeRosa Stephens, optometrist from Horner-Rausch Optical, Ashley Wright, community relations coordinator from River Park Hospital, and Nita Brooks and Melinda Korzaan, Assistant Professors, Information Systems, from MTSU. Special thanks go Rebecca Merritt of the Bonnie Blue Inn for providing lunch for our guests, Adelia’s Blooms for flower gifts, and our PTF for providing funding.
The early enrollment deadline has been extended until Friday, May 7. Parents have until that date to register and receive the $50 discount off the registration fee. Registration has been strong; current registrations are approximately 5 times the number we had at this time last year. We continue to receive registrations from new families, especially from the Manchester area. Please return your enrollment contract and registration fee as soon as possible.
Please remember that this year’s annual Spring Banquet will be held on Monday evening, May 17, 2010, at the Bridgestone Learning Center. We are very excited that Don Meyer has agreed to be our guest speaker. Coach Meyer was formerly the men’s basketball coach at Lipscomb University in Nashville, and has just retired from Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota. Coach Meyer is the winningest men’s coach in NCAA history and led Lipscomb to the NAIA National Championship in 1986. Tickets for this event
are $125 each. Tables of 8 seats will be $1,000, or 10 seats for $1,250. Please call Terry Stubblefield at school to reserve your seats.
