JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Campbell County High School Seniors Daniel Miehlke and Kylah Whedbee help make up the largest class to date at the Campbell County Christian Learning Center. In the center’s fourth year, the enrollment is 45, and that also counts a friend of Whedbee’s who just signed up after hearing her talk about the class.
Miehlke is in his second year at CCCLC while Whedbee is a first timer. He needed a class to take and came back while she needed the half-credit the class affords. “Being here last year brought me back,” said Miehlke. “I heard about the class, and it’s turned out to be a really good class. I didn’t drop it,” said Whedbee.
Whedbee hails from La Follette and doesn’t attend church. “I really like learning about the Bible,” said Whedbee. She also expressed her liking of the class as well as the setting; upstairs in the Hillcrest Baptist Church Family Life Center. She’s enjoyed learning how to pronounce the books of the Bible.
Conversely, Miehlke of Jacksboro describes himself as a big church person growing up in the church. “I’ve gone to church all my life, and I’ve learned so much here including vocabulary and stories,” said Miehlke. He feels proud for this large class and telling others about it.
Both Miehlke and Whedbee enjoy leaving campus to take the class. Although, the CCCLC borders the high school parking lot making for a short walk.
Whedbee plans to attend Roane State Community College while Miehlke is possibly headed to East Tennessee State University. She wants to do something in law and plans to major in criminal justice and paralegal services. He plays the guitar and is eyeing music or culinary arts.
“I think everyone should contemplate taking it (a class at CCCLC),” said Miehlke. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/28/2021-6AM-PHOTOS COURTESY OF WLAF’S CHARLIE HUTSON)
