Tallulah Falls School has announced its outstanding students, faculty and staff for 2018.

Award winners were surprised at a Dec. 20 assembly prior to students being dismissed for the Christmas break.

“These individuals live out the mission of the school every day. I am proud of the leadership they represent,” said President and Head of School Larry A. Peevy. “I offer my congratulations to these deserving honorees for their dedication to our TFS community.”

This year’s award-winners were announced as follows: eighth-grader Yixuan “Linda” Wang of China, outstanding middle school student of the year; music teacher Memrie Cox, outstanding middle school faculty member of the year; senior Isabeau Keene of Demorest, outstanding upper school student of the year; science teacher Beth Huebner, outstanding upper school faculty member of the year; dorm counselor Eric Hollifield, outstanding staff member of the year and Upper School Academic Dean Kim Popham, Light in the Mountains honoree [outstanding senior staff member of the year].

Also during the assembly, winners of the Christmas card art contest were announced.

The winning card for the upper school was designed by senior Emily Wonders of Clarkesville, with the winning card for the middle school card designed by seventh-grader Audrey Harbst of Cleveland.

Second place for the middle school card contest was seventh-grader Joseph McGahee of Clarkesville and third place was Emmet Sims of Clarkesville. Second place for the upper school card contest was sophomore Yun Liu of China and third place was Maredith Anderson of Cornelia.
