Outstanding Student of the year

Each year, Tennessee Home Education Association (THEA) honors outstanding homeschool students from across the state. These are students who exemplify excellence not only in academics, but also in areas such as character, service to their communities, and personal achievement.
We are in the process of selecting two students to represent West Tennessee. If you are interested in nominating a senior for this honor, you will find the link to the nomination form below.
Also, these two seniors will be honored at graduation with a special stole and a plaque.
