Our goal at Clarksville Christian School is to help our students grow like Jesus did – in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. Jonathan and Alayna Lancaster were two students who modeled this completely and exhibited Christ-likeness in every aspect of their lives. Their love for God and others and the manner in which they lived out their faith truly reflected the heart of a Centurion. Their time with us on this earth seems far too short as they were called home to be with the Lord on April 25th, 2019.
Following our loss of Jonathan and Alayna, the CCS Board and administration, faculty and staff, along with the students and families of Clarksville Christian School, strongly desired to celebrate their lives and to honor their memory. In addition, Jonathan and Alayna’s parents, Bryan and Dana, noted the impact CCS had on their children, and they expressed their wish that many other students would have the same opportunity to attend CCS as their children had.
Therefore, the Jonathan and Alayna Lancaster Memorial Scholarship was established to honor two wonderful students who forever changed our lives, to help fulfill the wishes of the Lancaster family, and to assist first-time CCS students with tuition and fees.
Foundations in Faith Scholarship
Joe and Janie Couch are champions for education, and they also know the importance of being deeply rooted in one’s faith. They have loved and supported CCS in many ways over the years - through Joe’s service on the CCS Board of Directors, with generous giving, and by offering spiritual support and prayers.
Most recently, they provided an incredibly thoughtful gift to CCS in order to establish and endow the Couch Family Foundations in Faith Scholarship. This endowed scholarship is intended to offer support for CCS graduates who choose to pursue a degree at a Christian College or University.
Excellence for Educators Scholarship
When people traditionally think of creating a scholarship, they might imagine that it would go to a graduating high school senior or a current college student. However, thanks to the kindness and out-of-the-box thinking of some anonymous donors, Clarksville Christian School has been blessed with a very unique scholarship…for our teachers!
The “Excellence for Educators” scholarship was created and endowed specifically to bless the educators at Clarksville Christian School who are looking to continue their education. The donors who created this opportunity wanted to find a way to bless those who were using their talents for Christian Education and offer them an incentive to continue their own education. They knew that this would, in turn, ultimately benefit the students of Clarksville Christian School.
The “Excellence for Educators” endowed scholarship was also designed to honor the memory of the educators in the families of the donors. This generous gift will undoubtedly bless CCS educators for years to come!
Memorial and Honor Gifts
Pay tribute to someone special with an Honor or Memorial Gift to Clarksville Christian School. From books in our library, and resources for a classroom, to the naming of a classroom or building, this avenue of giving is a wonderful way to perpetuate the memory of friends and loved ones who have made an impact. A letter of acknowledgment will be sent to the person or family advising them of the gift (the gift amount is not disclosed).
