Please help us welcome our new Athletic Trainer...
Please help us welcome Mr. Randy Wilkes as our new Athletic Trainer for the 18-19 school year. He comes to Grace Academy having 12 years of experience in handling secondary and post-secondary athletic training duties.
His most recent placement was at Ooltewah High School. Randy is currently the regional representative for the Tennessee Athletic Trainers Society’s Secondary Schools Committee. He was selected as the South Eastern Athletic Trainers Association High School Athletic Trainer of the Year in 2015 and was also selected as the Tennessee Athletic Trainers Society High School Athletic Trainer of the Year in 2014.
Randy has a Bachelor of Science in Sports Medicine/Athletic Training from Valdosta State University and a Master of Science in Health and Human Performance with a concentration in Advanced Athletic Training from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. With Randy’s extensive background and knowledge in athletic training, we are excited he has officially joined our family at GBA.
Randy is no stranger to our campus. His wife, Tiffany is a current faculty member, and his daughter Loa is in our Kindergarten class at the Academy. He has two young sons, Trey and Colton who attend Grace Children’s Center. When Randy isn’t working as an athletic trainer, you will be able to find him spending time running, working out in the yard, and playing with his kids. Target shooting is also a favorite past time.
Please help us make Randy feel welcome and at home in his new role at GBA.
LOWER SCHOOL PLAYGROUND
Recent donations of more than $5,000 bring us almost to the halfway point of completing the redevelopment of the Lower School Playground.
With over $11,000 now on hand, another $12,000 would enable us to finish this important project.
The Uniform Resale will be held in the Upper School gym on July 27, 2018, 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm and on July 28, 2018, 8:00 am to 8:00 pm.
