On October 8, John S. Battle High School hosted the fourth annual Fields of Faith at Battle Field. Fields of Faith is an FCA sponsored event with students and coaches from around the local area sharing their testimonies and encouraging the community with the Gospel message.
Local families, teachers, administrators, and youth groups gathered together and braved the cool night air for a wonderful night of worship and fellowship as they listened to students and coaches from John Battle, Abingdon, Virginia High, and Tennessee High share their faith. Nick B., Abby J., and Summer M., all three seniors, represented the Trojans while Coach Wright closed the evening with an encouraging word and prayer. Thanks so much to all who joined the fun and were there to support this exciting event!
On Monday November 3, 2014, 39 students from the John Battle FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) had the opportunity to travel to White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. They were able to tour The Greenbrier Resort, the three golf courses, recreational facilities, and take a closer look inside the marvelous Presidential Suite. The morning was spent learning exactly how The Greenbrier prepares for the Classic and the PGA tour. Throughout the afternoon, the students enjoyed a wonderful buffet lunch in the Crystal Room where they got to practice their etiquette skills that they previously learned in an FBLA meeting. They continued to learn more about the management of The Greenbrier through representatives from housekeeping, food and beverage, engineering, and hospitality.
