Key Club

To begin their spring break, seven officers of the Clarksville Academy Key Club attended the Kentucky- Tennessee District Convention in Franklin, TN on March 22nd – 24th.  Those attending were club members: Akanee Angel, Ellyn Darke, Victoria Hilfiker, Jackson Trotter, Hannah Weatherford, Brandon Walker, and Christy Zheng, along with Key Club Advisors, Denise Walker and Lisa Little.

During the convention, club members participated in competitions, a Ronald McDonald House service project, leadership workshops, formal election caucus, and socials events. During the Saturday evening awards ceremony, Brandon Walker received the Ira Gladson Scholarship of Excellence and Christy Zheng won 3rd place in the poster contest. On Sunday Morning during the Governor’s Farewell Brunch, it was announced that Akanee Angel was elected to be the new District Treasurer. Akanee was installed by outgoing District Treasurer and fellow CA club member, Christy Zheng. Additionally, Ellyn Darke was installed as the new Lt. Governor for Division 15 by outgoing Lt. Governor and fellow CA club member Brandon Walker. Our Key Club has been blessed and honored to have wonderful, strong young adults that are willing to take on leadership roles and serve their community through their active involvement in Key Club.

A special thanks goes to Mrs. Amanda Pitt, it was mentioned multiple times throughout the convention by the students that they were well prepared for speeches and presentations due to lessons from her Speech class.

 Engage, Embrace, Empower

Clarksville Academy is blogging!  Our new blog launched the week of Thanksgiving and will post twice weekly. The hope of this blog is to offer insights for parents.  We will discuss a variety of topics from technology, to parenting ideas, ways to prepare your child for testing, long breaks, etc.  We hope you will choose to subscribe and to encourage your friends to do so as well. These blogs will not be CA centered, but will offer insights for any parent at any school.  Subscribe at: https://clarksvilleacademy.com/category/engage-embrace-empower/

 

Giving

In the last few weeks, Clarksville Academy has received some wonderful gifts from donor families.  Dr. George & Katie Lee have graciously purchased a new AED machine for our campus.  This device will allow us faster response time if we have a student or staff member in need.

Bill & Kerri Mace donated the materials and labor to build an addition to our baseball facility at the Sports Complex.  This new facility will feature a 30X30 foot weight room and a 50X85 foot hitting facility.  This will enable us to add 3 full length batting cages, a full weight room and turn our current facility into a pitching lab.  The entire project is donated by the Mace family.

Jon & Christina Clark recently donated lights to be used in the hallway of the main building.  These lights have already brightened this space so much!  CAPA (Clarksville Academy Parent Association) purchased new tiles for the hallway and these were installed prior to break by Lloyd Hinote, Les Allen, WD Henson, and Mike Veitenheimer.

We can’t thank these families enough for their continued support of Clarksville Academy and our programs.  If you have an interest in supporting Clarksville Academy, please contact Sally Allen at sallen@clarksvilleacademy.com to find out more about how you can help.
