NATCHEZ — Like many of the former Trinity Episcopal School students and teachers in the area, Kristen Stokes has moved on to another school.

Stokes is in her first year as a teacher at Adams County Christian School.

Stokes is sponsoring ACCS’s Rebelettes dance team, which she said has helped her with the transition to a new school.

“Just being able to get to know some of the kids and particularly some of the high school girls, it just kind of helped to ease into it so you see familiar faces when you start the first day,” Stokes said. “It just makes us feel more like a group.”

Stokes said her family was very involved at Trinity.

“Everyone over at Trinity, was very, very close,” Stokes said. “We moved here six years ago and Trinity was the only thing we have known.”

In addition to heading up the Rebelettes dance team, Stokes will be teaching junior and senior history at ACCS.

Stokes daughter, Caroline, 4, also is a member of the “Pride and Joy” dance team which performs with the Rebelettes before football games.

Stokes said everyone at ACCS everyone has been welcoming and helpful since she started working at the school.

“My husband and I both noticed since we have come over to ACCS that everybody is really together,” Stokes said, “which is something that we were so used to at Trinity. This has been a really good transition for us.”
