Tennessee Christian Preparatory School was the winner of WCLE Mix 104.1 FM’s “Favorite School” contest.
The announcement was made by WCLE’s Steve Hartline during a gathering held at the TCPS chapel Thursday morning. Prior to the announcement, attendees were treated to songs sung by the TCPS elementary choir and the chapel band.
“People voted on our app and on our website,” Hartline said. “Over the course of a week, we had 20,000 people vote in this poll.”
WCLE’s Bridgett Forrester announced the winner to wild applause.
TCPS won 37 percent of the vote. Michigan Avenue Elementary was the runner up, coming in at 33 percent of the vote.
TCPS president Dr. Jimmy Harper said the award was great news for the school’s students and teachers.
“This is a huge honor,” Harper said. “This is very big for us.”
Hartline presented Harper with a plaque.
“On behalf of Mix 104.1 and our friends at Nissan of Cleveland, you are the champions,” Hartline said.
We’ve got a lot of wonderful people here,” Harper said. “To get behind this school, it took a lot of us to win this particular competition. We had teachers, grandparents … a lot of people voting. There’s a lot excitement going on here.”
Harper said the school will continue doing what it does best.
“We want to focus on good academics, athletics and the arts and music," Harper said. "We are moving forward and are excited about things to come.”
Despite the excitement for the award, perhaps the largest round of applause was when Hartline announced everyone would get a free cream pie courtesy of McKee Bakery.
