Ms. Tonya Thompson was part of our studio family for 17 years. She was instrumental in the overall growth of student population, as well as spearheading the foundation of many of the programs offered at the studio. Most importantly, Tonya allowed Stacey to be home each afternoon with her own children.
In the fall of 2014, Tonya approached Stacey and told her where her heart was leading. God has bigger plans for Ms. T and has called her to mission in Rio, so we celebrate her legacy and show her support as she ventures out into unchartered waters.
As a missionary, Tonya is unable to obtain a job, so she sold her house, car and all her belongings to follow God's will and support herself in God's calling in Rio. The studio supports Ms. Tonya and her mission through various fundraisises throughout the year.
