Noble Academy Students & Staff Shout Out the Women in Their Lives

This is part of a series of blogs from Noble campus representatives to give a deeper look at campus life.

Even though Women’s History Month is over, The Noble Academy students and staff are still shouting out all the Women who have impacted, inspired, and helped form the TNA community. Check out these shoutouts:

I want to shout out my aunt, who is someone I can call my best friend. We grew up together and she is someone I can rely on for anything. Someone who I adore and appreciate!

I would like to shout out Ms. Shwartzman who taught Global Civics last year. She was such a nice teacher she always supported her students and made her classroom somewhere where you could reach out if you needed help. She would make me laugh during my first period and I enjoyed her class so much and miss her.

I would like to shout out my mother because she is the strongest woman I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. She is resilient, strong, and creative. And she inspires me to become a better person.

I want to recognize my amazing mother! She is a great example of a hardworking and resilient woman. She instilled in us the importance of education and thanks to her help, I am where I am today. She immigrated to the United States with my dad and worked hard to make sure her children had a better life with many opportunities.

I would like to give a shoutout to my mom because she has been a great role model in my life, a single mother who always stood by my side and continues to do it! She is my rock, my best friend and Jerals wela (grandma). She deserves everything in the world!

I would like to shout out Ms. Lampkins. Ms. Lampkins was the Dean of Culture when I was a student at The Noble Academy and now she is TNA’s principal. Being able to come back, work with her, and see how much she has grown as a person has been a humbling and inspiring experience. She is such a great role model and loves our students dearly!!!
