to live; however, the past few years it has really made some nice additions and renovations. Everything from the new community

c.e.o. at ths and wildcat renaissance
Tullahoma High School is experiencing a great second semester filled with
many student successes backed by a hardworking, caring faculty. We have 2 seniors
that are National Merit Finalists and 2 that
scored perfect scores on the ACT. Our
FCCLA, Skills, DECA, HOSA, and FBLA
programs all had several students place at
state competitions and are going on to the
next level, and we have a student that was
elected and will be serving as State HOSA
President. In addition, we have 6 students
who will be attending Governor’s school
this summer, and THS took 12 out of the top
30 State Math Competition places – more
than any other school. We are also very
proud of and grateful to have Mrs. Ragan
Osborne on staff – the Tennessee South
Central CORE Region High School Teacher
of the Year.
Our theater arts department is presenting its spring musical, The Little Mermaid,
with many talented students involved and
highlighted. Our Media Production class,
who produce our daily HYPE student news
show, are grateful to the Sunrise Rotary
who obtained a grant for a new tri-caster!
Our THS Band and Aristocats also recently
sent many students to participate in the
Tennessee All-State Band and Choir. In athletic news, our wrestling team had several
members compete at the state level, and
boys’ soccer, baseball, girls’ softball and
THS track are currently in full swing.
We have also now successfully completed our fourth full year as a Renaissance
school. Wildcat Renaissance, which is
really more of a concept than a program,
focuses on 1) recognizing and rewarding
students for meeting various achievement
goals in the areas of academics, attendance, and behavior, 2) building positive
school culture and climate, and 3) building
connections within the student body and
with all school stakeholders. This summer
we will be sending a group of faculty to
the National Renaissance Conference in
Orlando in order to grow our Wildcat
Renaissance Committee and expand ways
in which we can serve our students.
A highlight of the program is the
Wildcat Renaissance Cards that, with varying criteria, allows every student in the
school the opportunity to meet one or more
of the goals and be recognized. Each card
has its own unique set of school-wide incentives tied to it, and they also privy students
to classroom level perks of each teacher’s
choosing. Finally, Wildcat Renaissance
Card holders enjoy an exclusive list of
discounts on food, retail and services with
area business partners. Students also have
the opportunity to benefit from cash drawing prizes at semester Awards Ceremony
and weekly drawings to feature Students
of the Week.
For some students, this is recognition
and a “pat on the back” for already meeting one or more of the cards’ criteria. For
others, it serves as incentive to improve in
one or more areas to receive the recognition and rewards that Wildcat Renaissance
has to offer. “We want all students to
have a sense of community within their
school, a common bond, something for
everyone to belong to and be excited
about – Renaissance encompasses that and
helps students connect with each other and
to their school and community”, says Mrs.
Duncan. “We want all students to know we
see their efforts, we appreciate them, and
that, as a community, we care about the
successes, big or small, of every student.”
We would like to say a very big thank
you to all our Chamber CEO partners and
the following businesses that have supported the Renaissance program as Corporate
Sponsors: Housholder & Artman, First
Vision Bank, Southern Community Bank,
Brindley & Sons Construction, and Stan
McNabb Auto Group. There are also
many area businesses that have offered
exclusive discounts to cardholders.
