As we prepare to celebrate TCA’s 25th Anniversary, our year-long theme is “Remembering our Roots.” In that spirit, Dr. Sojourner and Mr. Wes Jolly (our Director of Academic Services) sat down with Mrs. Betsy Brown and Mrs. Ruth Miller last May. Both of these women and our president served sequentially in the role of Director of K-12 Character Education. Through their efforts, the inculcation of character in TCA’s curriculum solidified.
