Spanish Honor Society
The Spanish Honor Society packed over 200 gift bags filled with Thank You cards and snacks for nurses and employees at three Advent Health COVID units in the area!
The Empty Bowls Project
On Thursday, January 28 our Fine Arts department facilitated its third annual Empty Bowls Project: a benefit dinner providing help for the needy. Hot soup, bread, and a cookie were carefully packaged and hand-delivered to families during our on-campus drive-thru. Along with their meal, each family also received a ceramic bowl made with care by our TMA Fine Arts students, a symbolic reminder of all the empty bowls — or hungry people — within our community.
This year all profits were donated to Harvest Time International, an organization providing a hand up to children and families in need. Together, students raised over $2,800.00 through this incredible mission!
A special thanks to everyone who participated!
Going the Second Mile
It brings us joy to witness our students going the second mile for Christ! We want to recognize and celebrate Evan Vickaryous for being honored by Impower, a leading non-profit, mental health, substance misuse and child well-being organization dedicated to empowering the lives of people by offering them the services they need.
Evan leads an annual Holiday Sock Drive that donates new socks to their organization along with foster homes, homeless shelters and other groups supporting children in need.
We are so proud of you, Evan!
Teacher Appreciation Week
Teacher Appreciation Week is always a special time to honor the incredible teachers at TMA! This week Mrs. Debbie Clark, one of our middle school teachers, received a special text from a former TMA student expressing just how much her life has had a lasting impact from Mrs. Clark. Read Andrea’s story below!
“HAPPY TEACHER APPRECIATION DAY!!!! I’m graduating with my undergraduate in aerospace engineering. And I can’t wait to bring you to Houston and give you a tour of mission control — all cause I had the best teacher that got me hooked on space!! I am an aerospace engineer. I will be training as a flight controller at Johnston Space Center in Houston to help support the International Space Station (ISS). I have loved space ever since I learned about it when I took Mrs. Clark’s class in sixth grade, [and] she has continued to support me throughout high school and college. She’s the one teacher that touched me and made a difference. It is really cool to look back and have that foundation and friendship and share all my endeavors with the best teacher I ever had.” — Andrea Maskiell
