Students at Gilbert Elementary School in LaFayette, Ga., have a new way to have fun outside while building their problem-solving skills. This past spring, UTC students in the Outdoor Leadership Skills class, led by Dr. Drew Bailey, constructed a ropes course in a wooded area next to the school.
Like many students, Courtney Jackson had switched his major a few times during his first few years at UTC and was unsure about what he would do in his future career.
All that changed the morning he learned that his childhood best friend, Tasha, was murdered by her estranged husband in a parking lot outside of her workplace in September 2014. Tasha had recently filed for divorce and had a restraining order against her husband.
