Lions Weekly: October 27, 2021


A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,

Good afternoon! I am writing to you today from our first annual college road trip for our juniors and seniors. A group of twenty-four students and three faculty members are visiting six colleges and universities. We are visiting Carson Newman University, University of the Cumberlands, Union University, Tennessee Tech, Middle Tennessee State University, and the University of Tennessee Chattanooga, as we seek to expose students to potential opportunities for the next steps in their educational journey. This group has represented TKA exceptionally well and is looking forward to the remainder of the visits on this trip.

I’d ask that you take some time this week to specifically pray for our juniors and seniors as they seek the Lord’s will for the next steps. We are joining their families in prayer for wisdom, provision, and discernment.

In Christ Alone,

Jeremy Sandefur

Love Where We Live

TKA Love Where We Live projects are in full swing!

Yesterday, the 9th-grade students participated in their grade level Love Where We Live Project. They washed the ambulances, swept the bays, and cleaned the station for our Seymour EMT station. We are thankful for the opportunity to serve our first responders in the Seymour community!

Our 12th-grade students participated in a Love Where We Love activity by creating encouragement cards for healthcare workers at UT Medical Center. Thank you to all of our health care workers who continue to take care of those in need!

National Principals Month

October is National Principals Month. We want to take time and celebrate our two TKA Principals! Mr. Fuller is our middle and high school principal, and Mrs. Sullivan oversees our elementary department as their principal.

Mr. Fuller received his B.A., Psychology, and M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from Saint Leo University. He has been serving at TKA since 2019.

Mrs. Sullivan received her B.S. in Elementary Education from Tennessee Wesleyan. She received her M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction and Ed.S in Administration and Supervision from Lincoln Memorial University. Mrs. Sullivan has been on staff at TKA since 2018.

Both principals go above and beyond each day to serve our students, teachers, and families. We at TKA are thankful for Mr. Fuller and Mrs. Sullivan! If you pass them in the hallways, give them a high five, fist bump, or even a hug to thank them for all they do daily to help our TKA Lions!


Residence Life in Action

This week, a few of our residence life students went to visit Ripley's Haunted Adventure. We love to see our dorm students having fun in the community while exploring where we live!

Covid-19 Procedures

While we are excited to offer in-person education, we must continue to maintain a safe learning environment for all students, faculty/staff, and additional stakeholders.

To do so, we will be working closely with the Sevier County Health Department in regards to Covid-19 protocols.
