Wayne Christian School is pleased to announce that Mr. Tommy Fox has been hired as the school’s next athletic director. Mr. Fox comes to us from Zion Christian Academy in Columbia, TN, where he has served as the AD since 2017. He will serve as the AD, boys’ basketball coach and softball coach at WCS.
“I am thrilled that Coach Fox and his family are joining our WCS Family,” says Mr. Brenner, head of school. “He is deeply committed to Christian education, is passionate and energetic, and will bring incredible leadership to our campus.”
Mr. Fox has an impressive resume leading programs at schools and colleges. He holds a master’s degree in secondary education from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and has coached basketball at both the high school and college levels for many years. As a coach, Mr. Fox has coached several student-athletes who have gone on to earn basketball scholarships to various colleges. As an AD, he brings experience working with all school departments to help develop and maintain a robust athletic program by supporting student-athletes in every aspect of their academic and athletic careers.
Mr. Fox says that his goal is to “cultivate and develop flourishing campus-wide athletic programs for a Christian, college preparatory institution by molding Christ-like character into young men and women through visionary leadership. The athletic programs would challenge students to achieve their individual potential and create a team environment which fosters the Biblical character traits of discipline, humility, perseverance, respect for others, and self-sacrifice. My foremost role would be to use the experiences of athletic competition to develop student-athletes into devoted disciples of Jesus Christ.”
