Meet the Coaches Night at Secondary Campus
July 27, 2012
This event is for all students (and their parents) who want to participate in any sport during the 2012-13 school year.
Team sports are always an exciting part of a comprehensive program that also includes a rigorous academic program, challenging spiritual growth, and social opportunities for leadership and service.
At the end of last school year, six seniors were signed to play competitive sports at different colleges and universities on "signing day" at the secondary campus! These students represent the opportunities for scholarships available to all students who work hard through our sports programs and in the classroom to earn them.
For the new 2012-2013 school year, Coach David Nelson has been appointed the Athletic Director for the high school and Coach Braden Stewart will be the Athletic Director for the Middle School. Both coaches will continue to coach and teach in the classroom. We appreciate their commitment to students on and off the field.
In an earlier newsletter introducing new faculty in July, you read about Peter Abbot, the new basketball head coach who will be teaching Sophomore English and Communication Applications, and Shonda Majors, the new tennis coach who will be teaching 6th Grade Science, Anatomy and AP Biology. Since that publication, additional coaches have joined the staff including Coach Latisha Brown leading the volleyball program and Thurston Johnson coaching the Junior Varsity Basketball Team.
Latisha Brown comes to us from Willowbrook Volleyball where she currently coaches the 15 Red Team. She also has a variety of experience coaching on the club, high school, and collegiate levels. She has a history of success including a coveted national title. She expresses continued excitement about being on our beautiful campus and taking our ladies to the next level.
Thurston Johnson comes to us as a public servant from the Houston Police Department. He is a former college basketball player who desires to apply his first hand experience in life towards a basketball coaching career in order to help young adults achieve their academic and athletic goals. He is also excited about using basketball as a platform to train young men to be "advancers" of the Kingdom of God.
Do not miss the excitement of meeting these coaches and their players at the event on Monday, August 13, known as "Meet the Coaches" night. To add to the fun, there will be an NCS Foundation benefit cookout with hamburgers and grilled chicken sandwiches along with other goodies that evening. You will be able to enjoy the meal as soon as you arrive with the following schedule:
5:30 - 7:00: Pre-Rally Cookout
7:00 - 8:15: Meet the Coaches
8:15 - 9:00: Cookout continued with Fellowship
Tickets and the T-Shirts will be available on-line beginning August 1. Purchase early and help us plan ahead for a huge crowd! The Dinner and "Victory Forever" shirts help benefit the Tuition Assistance Program through the NCS Foundation. Also, make plans to show your support for those awesome Cougars by joining the NCS Athletic Booster Club!
