Congratulations to all who completed this wonderful task. We would also like to encourage all students to take advantage of a new opportunity to join this list during the second 9 week period.
I am married to my lovely wife of twenty-seven years, Tracey. Tracey is a school nurse at Edgewood Middle School. We are the parents of two wonderful children. Our oldest, Tyler, is an assistant football coach and graduate student at Anderson University in Anderson, IN. Our youngest, Tara, is a senior also attending Anderson University.
In the fall of 2005 we became the legal guardians of Yachaaroah Lightbourne Stuart from the Bahamas. " Cha" is a graduate of UTEP in El Paso, TX where he was a member of the UTEP Miner NCAA DI football team.
We are involved in many activities. We are involved with and enjoy our church family at WCC. We also love the Performing Arts, professional and collegiate athletics, and nearly all outdoor activities.
Last May, Mason Johnson, then a freshman, won a $100.00 shopping spree at Wal-Mart as part of the Tiger Way Program. Unfortunately, the timing wasn't good to take this young man on this spending spree. After multiple attempts of trying to plan the event, Mason finally got to accompany me to Wal-Mart to spend his $100.00 prize.
Here is where the story differed from most. When his grade-level principal, Mrs. Huffman and I asked how he planned to spend his prize money, Mason, paused and stated, "I want to purchase items for the Fellowship Missions to assist those in need." Mrs. Huffman and I felt our jaws drop to the floor! It certainly brought tears. That my friends is exactly an example of a WCHS student living out the final five words of our Mission Statement, "enriching the lives of others!"
Thank you Mason for this valuable lesson for all!
