For the second year in a row, ninth grade language arts classes had the opportunity to learn the skill of tying a tie. The demonstration tied into a reading assignment: freshmen had just completed reading the nonfiction novel, “The Pact.” The book is a story of three young men that made a pact earlier in life to become successful doctors. It focuses on the power of friendship, beating the odds, and changing lives. TCCHS English teachers Laura Parkerson, Kimsey Hodge, Kensey Edgar and Frances Lilly coordinated with 10 local businessmen to come to TCCHS to help students learn how to tie a tie. “Since this was so successful last year we decided to continue it again,” teacher Laura Parkerson said. “It is a great opportunity for the community to get involved and interact with our students. It is also a challenging and fun activity for the kids.”
