All of our TSA family, past and present, are invited as we honor our founders and Dr. Riley casts the vision for our future. This evening will highlight many milestones such as the 40th anniversary of our first graduating class (1974), unveiling of new Athletic Hall of Fame, tribute to Mrs. Lowery (the current graduating class is the last class she taught before retiring), and since we are combining this night with our spring Trojan Legion meeting we will also honor our current teachers years of service. As a bonus, we will hear from our special musical guest and '01 alum, Molly Stevens. We are excited that she has graciously agreed to perform at the event!

The evening should be a great time to reminisce with old and new friends as we honor our founders and thank God for our many blessings while we look towards our bright future!  The Celebration will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the Athletic Complex and heavy hors d'oeuvres will be served. Tattnall is such a special place, not because of buildings or programs, but because of the many special people that make up the Tattnall story, including YOU! Can't wait to celebrate this special place that we all call "home!" For more information or to RSVP, visit or click here.
