Many of our students begin their day at TCS with a warm greeting from Angela Harrison, TCS Development Specialist, who is always on hand to welcome them as they arrive at school. “It is truly a blessing to be at TCS,” says Angela. “I love welcoming your children in morning carpool – seeing their smiling faces is the best way to start the day!”
“In my role as Development Specialist, I work closely with Dr. Farrant and our Board of Trustees to develop strategies for raising funds for our school,” says Angela. “I also have the pleasure of working alongside Susan Clauss to support our Parent Teacher Fellowship. The best part of my job is working with our amazing volunteers! Most recently, I worked on our annual Mane Event dinner and auction with a team of 22 women who helped bring to life the Totally Awesome 80s Night that raised over $150,000 for TCS.”
“I love being a part of this community,” Angela continues. “I have seen such tremendous generosity, love, and support over the past 7 years here – from my co-workers, the volunteers who work with me, my fellow class parents, and our students.”
Angela and her husband, Jeff, have two sons, Caiden, a TCS 6th grade student, and Austin, a TCS 3rd grade student. “When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family at the beach. It’s my favorite place to be! Together, we enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, and searching for shells and sea glass,” she says.
“Not only do I get to spend my days at The Christ School, but my children do, too,” says Angela. “I love seeing my boys grow, not only academically, but also spiritually. They spend more of their waking hours with their teachers and classmates at TCS than they spend at home with me, and we feel blessed that at school, they are surrounded by kind, compassionate adults and children who love Jesus. I can’t think of a better place for them to be!”
Angela shares her favorite Bible verse:
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11
