GCA is the first and only private school to date in the greater Knoxville area to have achieved the status of being a "Heart Safe School"! This achievement was appropriately met during February, which is noted as "Go Red for Heart Awareness Month", after weeks of preparation by GCA nurse, Mrs. Amy Smith. Mrs. Smith has coordinated the effort and overseen multiple training sessions of on-site GCA Emergency Response Teams.
A representative from Children's Hospital presented Dr. Tony Pointer (GCA Head of School), Rick Frazier (Dir. of Campus Security), Mrs. Amy Smith (GCA Nurse) and students with a Heart Safe School banner to celebrate this achievement. Thank you, Mrs. Smith, for your work and diligence to make our campus a safer place for students, families, and visitors!
