Teacher/Faculty Spotlight
TCCHS welcomed first year teacher Nicole Bufford to our school family this year as a great edition to our Foreign Language staff.  Mrs. Bufford has jumped right in as our Spanish teacher and Spanish Club Sponsor.  Originally from Central City, Mrs. Bufford completed her high school career at Heritage Christian Academy in Hopkinsville, KY.  While there, she enjoyed Spanish and English class the most.  In her spare time, she can be found gardening, working puzzles, playing with her fur babies, and spending quality time with her best friend/husband.  This years Black Friday may be filled with shopping for Mrs. Bufford, but most likely with cake since it'll be her birthday as well.  We are thankful for Mrs. Bufford joining our TCCHS family!
