Class of 2019 Senior Spotlight: Stanford Eugene White
  • Upper School

As reigning dodgeball legend, high ACT scoring math wiz Stan White has spent his time at TRA challenging himself through many means. This year alone, Stan has been enrolled in 31 Dual Enrollment hours. This will allow him to enter college as a second semester sophomore.

While talking about his favorite aspect of being a student at TRA, Stan responded, “The administration is very supportive in my pursuit of academic rigor.” 

When asked about his favorite homecoming tradition, Stan replied “Dodgeball at homecoming…I mean what can I say?”

Outside of school, Stan enjoys practicing and teaching Jiu Jitsu at Midsouth LCCT Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy in Millington. “It’s an excellent way to de-stress, and it’s always nice to see my students and peers win competitions.”

When asked about his future college plans Stan answered, “I haven’t made a decision, but I am strongly considering the University of Mississippi if I do not get accepted into my reach schools of Vanderbilt University, Northwestern University, or University of Chicago for Chemical/Molecular Engineering.”

Stan’s biggest inspiration is his father. “Twenty years ago, he could not walk due to an auto-immune condition. Today, he and I are teaching Martial Arts side-by-side at Midsouth LCCT Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy.”

Breakout EDU Provides a Fun Learning Experience
  • Academics
  • Lower School

The fourth grade classes in the Elementary just escaped an escape room for the Revolutionary War. PTO purchased items and papers from breakoutedu.com to set up the escape room. The teachers split the fourth graders into groups, and each group had to unlock a code to get the next clue. The clues lead them all to a sheet of paper... the Declaration of Independence! Each student had to sign the Declaration of Independence to escape the room. All of the students and teachers who participated thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity, and are hopeful to do another escape room soon. A huge thank you to PTO for granting this amazing experience to our students!
