We are so excited to have Kim Bearden join us for this year’s Convocation,” said TCS Director of Schools, Dr. Catherine Stephens. “Some of our staff members are familiar with Kim and the work that she has done and continues to do on the education forefront at the Ron Clark Academy. I look forward to the inspiring message she will bring to all in TCS.”
