Melissa Wakefield- FCA Yearbook Teacher Mrs. Melissa has been a Wharton county resident since the age of three. She and her wonderful husband, Jared, are both Wharton High School graduates. She received her associate’s degree in Dental Hygiene from WCJC and has been a Dental Hygienist for 20 years. She and Jared have been married for 21 years this July and have 3 amazing kids, Jack (16), Cole (14), and Kate (12). Here’s what Mrs. Melissa has to say. “I took Yearbook in high school and was the assistant editor my senior year. I love our FCA students, they are so much fun! I also love to take pictures! So when there was talk of creating a yearbook class at FCA I knew I wanted in on that! I thoroughly enjoyed the kiddos in class this year and look forward to next year!” Jared and Melissa both give generously of their time, talents, and resources to our campus. We’re sure that Mrs. Melissa has FCA pom poms in her purse. She always brings excitement to the FCA campus and encouragement to everyone she meets. Since the school’s inception in 2007, Mrs. Melissa has served FCA as a room mom, school wide room mom coordinator, volunteered for almost every field trip, and always participates in campus events. She donates her time and energy at every fundraiser, working to make it successful! This year she has continued to pour into our school by volunteering to teach our yearbook students. Students in her class have learned photography skills, graphic page design, and so much more. We are so thankful for Melissa and Jared’s commitment and support!2 weeks ago

She graduated from Wharton High School in 1964 and earned an Associates degree from Wharton County Junior College in 1966. She went on to earn a Bachelor’s of Education from Southwest Texas State in 1967. Lois married Charles Terry Dorris in 1966. They were married for 51 years before his passing in 2017. They have 2 wonderful children and 7 amazing grandchildren. Lois has over 35 years of classroom teaching experience working in the Midland, Luling, Devine, Goliad, and Wharton school districts before coming to FCA. In addition to catering for various events, she has cooked and delivered meals to the elderly through the “Meals on Wheels” program here in Wharton county. Here is what Mrs. Lois has to say: “ From the time I could stand in a chair, I remember my Granny tying a cup towel apron on me and teaching me how to roll out cookie dough. I have been blessed with the gift of cooking and a love for children. I love teaching them the basics and showing them fun and creative ways to learn and share the joy of cooking. These past 2 years I have been blessed to work with the beautiful children at FCA. To see their faces light up when they ate what their hands had prepared gave me such joy. Thank you for sharing your students and especially thank you to Nancy Ondrias for recruiting and supporting me.” Two events that students love most from Mrs. Lois’s class are the Christmas Cookie Swap and The One Pot Wonder contest in the spring. FCA is so thankful for the wonderful talent and opportunities Mrs. Lois brings to our campus!

While the last few months of the school year were not what we envisioned them to be in August, our teachers, students, and parents worked incredibly hard to finish the year strong. We are so proud of all that they accomplished during this time and are thrilled to announce that through our distance learning program, 592 Warrior Work packets, 120 virtual meetings, continued teacher instruction, and student determination, FCA has met the curriculum requirements for the 2019-2020 school year! Way to go Warriors!! We are excited about all that God has for our campus in the upcoming 2020-2021 school year! Registration is OPEN! We can’t wait to see you all in August!

Jeannine Frankum- Homemaking Teacher Mrs. Frankum was born and raised in Richmond, Tx. She married Gene Frankum in 1956. They were married for 54 years before his passing in 2011. They have three wonderful children. “All because two people fell in love” their family is currently 41 strong. She is a member of First Baptist Church of Wharton where she has spent many years teaching children’s Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. Her favorite Bible verse is 1 Corinthians 13:13. Here is what Mrs. Frankum has to say about volunteering on the FCA campus:
“My journey as a volunteer began with me wanting to teach the kids how to sew a button on. That was two years ago. Since that time many projects have been completed with serious dedication and much joy. This year sewing machines were added to the classroom. The kids have greatly enlarged their skills and their projects have been completed with lots of toil but also with much self-pride. They bless me greatly when I see their enthusiasm and their readiness to reach out to assist and encourage each other. FCA is an awesome campus to be a part of. It not only strives to teach scholastically and academically, it is built on the foundation to bring students to Jesus through Bible study, scripture and prayer. It doesn’t get any better than that!” In addition to our homemaking classes, Mrs. Frankum contributed to our growing S.T.E.A.M./Robotics program, making it possible for our students to take their knowledge of basic coding and apply it to tangible technology. Mrs. Frankum is dearly loved by her FCA students! We are so thankful for her willingness to share her time and talents with us!1 month ago
What a blessing our Granny is to not only our family but our school family, too! We love her so!!❤️

We need to get a new Texas flag to you. SOON3 months ago
Patricia Lane Mangum Knapp - Thank you sooo much for offering. One of our families put a brand new one in our box this morning. I will definitely have it up before next week. We would happily take another one if you’d still like to contribute. The wind really eats up our flags quick out there. We go through about 4 or 5 a year. I didn’t really notice them until we had already started and then it was too late. So embarrassing!!3 months ago
What size do you need. I am always ready to donate to the school. That is what WoodmenLife does and we have in the past. Will get them to you when I head that way once again3 months ago
Please get a new Texas flag.3 months ago
Shari Wilkinson one of our sweet families dropped off a new one that very afternoon. Campus is closed right now and sadly maintenance has fallen down our to do list. I noticed the condition of the flag about half way through but it was too late. So embarrassing!! The flags will be changed before our next video. Thanks so much for watching! Stay safe out there!
