(Class of 2014)
Tabernacle Christian School is excited about the start of a new school year. With the new year comes new opportunities for students. One such opportunity involves one of our very own alumni, Mr. Noah Couick, who is the subject of our next alumni spotlight.
Noah, a member of the class of 2014, will be joining us again this school year as an intern speech teacher from Wingate University. Noah is majoring in Communications with a focus in Public Relations. He also has two minors, English and Spanish. Noah was an outstanding student here at TCS, graduating valedictorian of his class, and the academic excellence he demonstrated with us has continued during his time at Wingate University. Currently, Noah is an active member of many national academic fraternities including Phi Eta Sigma, Sigma Tau Delta, and Alpha Chi. He is also active in several campus groups including the Student Government Association. During his time at Wingate, Noah has held many positions of leadership, serving the university in the following capacities: Commuter Relations Chair for all commuters on campus, Vice President of Wingate's YAF (Young Americans for Freedom), Vice President of Phi Eta Sigma, an academic fraternity for students in the top 20 percent of their university class and who have a minimum 3.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale. In addition, Noah is Vice President of the Nervous Speaker's Club. He has also worked for Wingate University as a tutor in writing, English, and Spanish. Noah will graduate in December, one semester ahead of schedule, and plans to pursue his Masters in English.
Noah has a reputation for being passionate about learning and for striving for excellence in all that he does. He says the following concerning his time at TCS and his future: "Over the past few years, I have learned that there is much more to life than just clocking in and out of a job or studying for hours to make an A on a test. Since leaving Tabernacle and entering into the world as an eager college student, I have done many things to raise the bar for myself and reach the goals set for my life. Thankfully, as I near the end of my college career, I can look back on good memories with a mind that is still eager to learn. I truly believe that going to Tabernacle prepared me for so much in life. By utilizing my Biblical foundation, I have been able to witness more boldly and stand strong in my faith. I have encountered both students and teachers who questioned the truth of God's Word. However, the Biblical worldview I learned growing up in a Christian home and attending TCS helped me over and over again. Near the end of my undergraduate time, I treasure even more the education given and the relationships formed with fellow students and the faculty of TCS. More than ever, I wish to give back to this place that is more than just a center of educational development. To me, it is a place of religious liberty and safety. I am forever indebted both to the people and to the institution. Tabernacle was my starting point, and I hope it continues being a second home for the rest of my life.”
Tabernacle is thrilled to have this accomplished young man helping our students. Noah has worked with TCS students in the past as well, leading them to excellence in the NCCSA fine arts competition since 2014. Our students have scored high marks every year under his guidance.
