Macon, GA. – Carolyn Stuart, a faculty member and alumna of TSA, was selected by the senior softball players this season as the 2015 Impact Award recipient. Senior softball and baseball players each select a faculty member, as a team, who has made a significant impact on their time at TSA. We sat down with Jordan Allen, Grace Ann Morris, Caroline Gilbert, Taylor Spivey, and Brianna Beasely to talk about why they chose Mrs. Stuart as their honoree.
How has Mrs. Stuart made an impact on you over the years?
GAM: She’s been my math teacher since my freshman year, and over the years I’ve come to realize I can truly confide in her and trust her with anything. She treats her students like they are her own children, and I know she will do anything for us.
TS: Her teaching style is one that you will never forget. She’s one of those teachers that you know will stay at school from 7:30 a.m. until midnight just to help her students.
What is your favorite thing about her?
