Passing the Torch – A Personal Message from Rosemary and Tom Wyrick

After 12 ½ years of working with students and families at Lifetime Learning Academy, we will be retiring at the end of June 2019. We have enjoyed working with our students and families, our teachers, and the Cary and Holly Springs Chambers of Commerce. We have also enjoyed sponsoring many educator recognition programs, including over 120 Teacher of the Month awards in Cary and Holly Springs, 3 annual Honor a Teacher awards, and many years of the Principal and Assistant Principal luncheons in Cary.
It is bittersweet for us. The time has come in our lives to relax a little and take time to enjoy family, friends and traveling.
We will pass the torch to the exceptionally qualified and caring new owners of Lifetime Learning Academy: Blake and Amber Hickman. They are educators and parents of 5 boys. Blake also spent the last 17 years in pastoral ministry, with the last year doing non-profit work. They have a passion for education and learning. They will be responsible for all active student enrollment agreements and have many exciting plans for Lifetime Learning Academy.
We are committed to helping Blake and Amber as they take leadership of Lifetime Learning Academy. You may still see us from time to time, as we transition the business to them.
We will miss you all, but we feel good about leaving you in the caring, capable hands of Blake and Amber.
We offer you all our best wishes and prayers for your continued success.
Rosemary and Tom
