On March 15, 2013 the academy hosted a full day of special events to celebrate the unique facets of life in East Tennessee. Various artisans and guest speakers filled the campus to share their expertise with academy students. Students learned about history, art, games, wildlife, crafts, tools, and government. A special lunch menu included chicken and dumplings, creasy greens, buttermilk biscuits with sorghum, pinto beans, and apple cobbler. Heritage Day concluded with a good, old-fashioned “shindig” complete with bluegrass music, gospel singing, and clogging.
