Texas Christian Athletic and Academic Champion
Class of 2016 graduate, Elisa Kendall, was this year’s salutatorian and has been a student at Texas Christian since she was in the 1st grade. Elisa’s dedication was evident both inside and outside of the classroom as she came home with the TCAL Singles State Championship, making her a 4 Time State Champion.
Elisa strives to perfect her talent and it shines through in all the tennis tournaments she wins and the sportsmanship she displays. Elisa signed with East Texas Baptist University and is looking forward to the next part of her journey. You can view her accomplishments on http://www.tennisrecruiting.net/player/highlights.asp?id=753090.
She has grown into a stunning young woman of Godly character who uses her talents for the Lord, and TCHS could not be more proud of her.
Way to go Tiger!!!
Our very own point guard Travis Barnett earned honors from Vype Magazine top 30 basketball players in Houston, Texas, and now he is being recognized on the radio! Rosie Chance from KSBJ congratulated Travis on air.
Travis is a great leader with amazing character to go along with his talent.
Coach Trevino shared, “Travis is a coach’s dream, his faith in God, amazing work ethic, and great attitude is a lost art in this generation. Any college coach and teammate would be blessed to coach a young man like Travis or benefit from playing alongside with him as a teammate because he makes everyone better.”
We are so proud of Travis and his dedication not only as a Tiger player, but to the Lord as well!!!

Each year the four year old through the eighth grade students at Texas Christian School become published authors! Students collaborated to write and illustrate their very own hardbound books. The students of Texas Christian School are celebrating the publication of their books in a big way. While writing their books, the students learned that hard work really does pays off, and that writing is a lot of work. Students went through the entire process from first rough draft, many revisions, and finally the publication process where they now own their very own book as the author. Texas Christian’s writing program is designed to motivate students to learn through publishing by enabling students to write, illustrate, and publish full-color, hardbound books that they will enjoy for years. TCS is extremely proud of their student’s hard work and they look forward to many more books from their young authors.
