Trinity Christian Academy celebrates homecoming

By JESSICA SIMS | Special to the Democrat

With fall weather descending upon North Texas, Trinity Christian Academy will celebrate its 13th homecoming this Friday with the varsity football team competing against district rival Nazarene Christian Academy.

While Friday night football is the pinnacle of homecoming events, TCA works to make the entire week leading up to the big game exciting for everyone. The Student Council, National Honor Society and cheerleading squads have worked hard to plan several activities for the students.

Spirit Week began Oct. 7 with secondary students trading in their school uniforms for a week’s worth of fun special dress days including ‘Merica Monday, Tacky Tuesday, Wild West Wednesday, Disney Thursday, and ‘Fan’atic Friday. Daily “Best Dressed” awards were presented to a boy and girl student in middle school and high school categories.

Another important homecoming tradition is the selection of the homecoming court as high school students chose representatives for each high school grade. Sometimes perceived as a popularity contest, TCA urges students to go beyond that when choosing class representatives.

“Students were asked to select classmates who regularly demonstrate a bold, uncompromising faith in Jesus Christ, respect authority, are honest, practice godly speech, show kindness, seek unity among the student body and serve as exemplary role models for students of all ages,” TCA’s Principal Ken Nobles said.

The following students were chosen to serve as class representatives in the 2013 homecoming court: ninth grade – Brooke Silvey and Nathan Chesney; 10th grade – Angela McCullough and Max Robinson; and 11th grade – Avery Earl and Casey Gunter.

The senior class homecoming court representatives were also candidates for Mr. and Miss TCA. This included Blake Adams, Braxton Aldridge, Allie Jeffers, Maci Nichols, Carter Skaggs and Johanna VanHoudt.

“Students in grades six through 12 made these selections based upon which of these senior class representatives best fulfilled the ideals of Trinity Christian Academy in terms of spiritual maturity and excellent behavior,” said Nobles.
