Nearly 300 students returned to the campus of Faith Christian School (FCS) for the 2013-14 school year. The administration, faculty, and students welcomed a returning FCS athlete, Katie McDaniel, as Athletic Director. McDaniel is a 2008 graduate and class valedictorian, who played volleyball, basketball, and softball. She was MVP of all three sports during her senior year. She was the first thousand-point scorer in FCS basketball history.
McDaniel is a graduate of North Greenville University with a degree in Sports Management. She returns to FCS with experience from Florida State University in Basketball, Softball, Baseball, Track and Field, Swimming and Diving, Sand Volleyball, Men’s and Women’s Tennis, and Golf.
McDaniel plans to strengthen the existing FCS programs of Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Softball, and Baseball. She is introducing Archery and Track to the school, and has enjoyed educating the students while acquiring the necessary equipment to initiate the programs. Her initial goals include increasing the school’s athletic visibility and competitive edge, and ensuring the athletes are provided the best equipment and experiences possible.
McDaniel’s passions are athletics and Christian education. A return to FCS provides the opportunity to pursue her passions while equipping students to excel academically and athletically. As a former FCS athlete, McDaniel has brought a vision and insight, as well as love and dedication like no other candidate could offer.
