TKA Celebrates Homecoming 2014 & Donates More than $5,800 to Access-Life Ministries
The King’s Academy’s Homecoming 2014 took place during the week of October 13. This year’s theme was “A Blast from the Past!” with each grade picking a different decade to represent. The week was packed with school spirit, fun, and healthy competition. Each day of the week, King’s students and staff dressed according to a theme, including: Mix-n-Match Day, Twin Day, Theme Day, Class Color Day, and Spirit Day. The festivities also included powder puff football, a class skit competition, and a homecoming football game in which TKA defeated Benjamin 49-13 and the 2014 Homecoming King & Queen were crowned.
Most importantly, a “Change for Change” drive raised more than $5,800 to support Access-Life Ministry. Access-Life develops and executes programs and events for people and families in the local area living with disabilities. Through their Expo events they help connect them to churches, organizations, resources, and people within their community. “We are so pleased to be able to partner with Access-Life,” said Michelle Kolar, Director of Student Life. “This fundraiser allowed our students to truly appreciate what it means to give back to our community.”
