K12 Kids are Amazing:Tennessee Virtual Academy student Gillian G.
Tennessee Virtual Academy student and fencing athlete, Gillian G. recently took a win in the Double Decker fencing tournament, a USFA sanctioned competition and is already qualified for the 2013 national event. Having just started fencing 8 months ago, the flexibility of online school has allowed Gillian to put in the time she requires to train while also learning and advancing her education.
Dolly Ghearing, her mother has said “Many of the skills and attributes of fencing are of benefit in Gillian’s studies with TNVA. Discipline and goal-setting are especially helpful for her, whether she’s mastering new math concepts or practicing ripostes and footwork.”
I am sure we will be hearing more about Gillian G. in the years to come!
