  • Upper School

Jack Flanders is a senior this year at Tipton-Rosemark Academy. When not excelling in academics—Jack’s GPA and ACT scores are well above average, Jack uplifts and encourages his peers. Jack enjoys performing in theater; he played numerous roles in TRA’s Crazy for You, acting as Perkins, Pete, and a Cowboy Dancer. Last fall, Jack took on the role of a doctor in And Then There Were None. Martial arts is another one of Jack’s favorite pastimes.

Jack respects the family environment that is fostered between students at TRA. Those he meets—both in and out of school—inspire him to continue through life with a positive attitude. Jack’s biggest inspiration is everyone; he explains, “Every person I meet has such struggles, yet they continue to move forward.” Jack is thrilled for his future at Ole Miss, where he will study Psychology before attending medical school. Jack will continue to be encouraged by humanity’s unyielding strength as he walks into the next phase of his life in college and beyond.

Prayer Garden Built by Student as Part of Eagle Scout Project
  • Upper School

Tipton-Rosemark has a new attraction organized by one very talented sophomore, Seth Walker. This young man has been with the Boy Scouts of America for six years. To reach the Eagle Scout rank, one must complete their Eagle Scout Project. The idea for a Prayer Garden in TRA’s courtyard became Walker’s unique endeavor. Friends, leaders, and fellow scouts accompanied him in following the project through till the end. Walker began by requesting approval from both the school and District Scout Representatives. After securing permission, he was able to purchase supplies and carry out his plan. Tile, gravel, and fieldstone were placed before adding the main pieces. The whole effort spanned eight months—from idea to execution—and required over fifty hours to complete. At its completion, the Prayer Garden showcases a beautiful wooden cross surrounded by four benches.
