U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz Visits King’s Academy

The King’s Academy welcomed U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to campus recently as part of the school’s “Read the Most from Coast to Coast” kickoff rally.

After meeting with the school’s High School Political Science Club and taking questions from students, Cruz was introduced to more than 400 elementary students, where he read Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham.

“The senator could not have been more gracious in coming to speak to the TKA Political Science Club,” said senior Charlie Hobbs, president of the club. “He spoke with unbridled passion, relevance and expertise. His words and the lessons he conveyed will impact us for years to come.”

Elementary Principal Heath Nivens commented on the impact of having a nationally recognized figure encourage the students in kindergarten through sixth grades.

“Sen. Cruz did an amazing job of reminding our kids of the importance of reading as we kicked off ‘Read the Most from Coast to Coast,’” he said. “The way he connected with the kids by relating how he reads each night to his daughters was very effective, and his sitting down to read Green Eggs and Ham was a fun and engaging way to do that.”

The King’s Academy is a nationally recognized private Christian school serving approximately 1,200 students from preschool through 12th grade.
