"School of The Good Shepherd is a continuation of 
Winchester Academy, which was opened in September of 1903 
by the Dominican Sisters in conjunction with the Good 
Shepherd Parish.  The present school was built and 
dedicated in 1966.  In 1992, the school began a new phase 
under lay administration after the Dominican Sisters were 
called back to Nashville.  The tradition of quality 
Catholic education in a loving, caring, and nurturing 
environment continues today."

kindergarten through eigth grade school located in 
Tullahoma, TN.  It has been in existence for the past 
fifty years.  Originally; it was staffed by the Dominican 
Sisters.  Gradually, however, lay teachers joined the 
faculy.  Today, the school is completely staffed by lay 
teachers.  St. Paul stresses Christian values, high 
academics, and social development.  It is a current member 
of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools."

ARISS is an international educational outreach program 
with US participation from NASA, AMSAT (The Amateur 
Satellite Radio Corp.), and the American Radio Relay 
League.  ARISS offers an opportunity for students to 
experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking 
directly with crewmembers on-board the International Space 
Station. Teachers, parents and communities experience,

energize youngsters' interest in science, technology, and
