On April 20, 2022, the TEPS leadership organization at McCallie inducted 21 students from the Class of 2025 for membership in the sophomore leadership organization for the 2022-23 school year during an induction ceremony in the Chapel.

TEPS is the school’s leadership organization for sophomores who have demonstrated spirit, service and leadership on campus. These characteristics are seen on athletic teams, on musical stages, in clubs, in organizations, in publications or in the theater.

The group is named for Dr. Thomas Edwards Peck Woods who taught at McCallie and served as associate headmaster from 1921 to 1948. During his time at McCallie, Dr. Woods’ name was synonymous with spirit, service and leadership, and TEPS exists to recognize and nurture those values.

The newest members of TEPS include:

Nate Coffman, Chattanooga, TN
Brody Cornelison, New Hope, AL
Nathan Eastman, Chattanooga, TN

Throughout their sophomore year, these young men will work to boost school spirit and serve others through service projects devoted to helping young people in the Chattanooga community, sponsorship of TEPS dress-down days and recognizing athletic achievements at McCallie with the TEPS Athlete of the Week award

Upper School counselor Will Honeycutt and history teacher Keith Chapin are the faculty advisors for TEPS.
