CTA held its inaugural “Wall of Honor” induction ceremony on Thursday, October 23 in the CTA auditorium. Dr. DeWayne Coxon and Lexie Coxon were honored as the first inductees. The Coxons were co-founders of CTA in 1998. Dr. Coxon served as a consultant for a time after the school was started and Mrs. Coxon has served the school as Superintendent/School Leader, volunteer, and board recorder.

“I’ve always believed in the value of knowing our history,” said Superintendent/School Leader, Dan George.  “The Coxons’ vision and efforts in establishing CTA is an important part of that. I want our students to know about people that made sacrifices and dedicated time and effort to making this school a viable choice for them and their parents. We established the Wall of Honor to recognize those people.” It is anticipated the Wall of Honor celebration will be an annual event for the school.
