A large crowd gathered in the Learning Commons this past Wednesday to watch Conner Beth Ball, Conley Chinn, Wilson Furr, and Meredith Roberts make official their intent to play college sports. Students, coaches, parents, grandparents, relatives, faculty/staff, and members of the media were on hand to celebrate with the student athletes on National Signing Day.
Conner Beth Ball signed with the University of Mississippi in golf; Conley Chinn signed with Belmont University for basketball; Wilson Furr will join the golf team at the University of Alabama; and Meredith Roberts will play tennis at Texas Christian University.
Congratulations to senior Conley Chinn and junior Michael Barber for being named to the Clarion-Ledger Dandy Dozen for the upcoming basketball season. In addition, senior Lauran Sheriff was named to the list “40 Other Seniors to Watch” and junior Deja Bradford was listed as one of “20 Underclassmen to Watch.” Congratulations, all!
A special JA event is scheduled Monday at the Highland Village courtyard: Raider Network will broadcast during JA at the Village with live music provided by Jim Tomlinson, a 1995 JA alumnus. The event offers refreshments, games, and interviews featuring JA students, faculty, alumni, and school programs. Alumni, JA families, faculty/staff, students, and friends are invited to attend.
The student-led fall retreat, Illuminate, is scheduled for November 11-13. The inspiration behind the theme is Matthew 5:16 that encourages Christians to let their light shine. Students in grades seven through twelve may attend. The retreat will take place on the JA campus with a community service activity off site. As with previous years, students will spend the night in host homes.
