The fifth annual Knight Tank competition was held in January and four winners were announced as recipients of Knight Tank awards. This year, 11 proposals were submitted, six of which advanced to the presentation round to compete for Knight Tank funds. In this round, each team presented their idea to a panel of judges that included Head of School Barry Giller, Chief Financial Officer Terry Efird, Board of Trustees members Jim Secunda and Todd Woolery, and Head Prefect Nathan Haynes. The Knight Tank initiative began as a competition to encourage students and teachers in developing and implementing new and innovative programs to enhance educational experiences.
The 2019 winning proposals are:
Lower School Karate Club - Second grader Henry Lee
Special Needs & Disability Awareness Curriculum - Fourth grader Carter Sumrall
Lower & Middle School Spirit Rock - Sixth graders Piper Fair, Adaline Robinson, Chloe Simon & Lexi Van Hoy
Upper School Dance Class - Juniors Sarah Whiting & Shae Whittle
