Tia- congrats on graduation! I loved working with you while you were a Chamberlain! Thank you for all the ways you served in your time at King’s! Wishing you the best always!

Tia, you did it! Congratulations on graduating! You have impacted this community in so many ways that will leave a lasting impression for years to come. I am so grateful for who you are and the values you choose to uphold. You will be deeply missed <3

Tia, you’re a treasure, and I’m so happy to have had you in APTAP II and Politics and Literature! So excited to see how God uses your life for his glory. Continue pursuing the truth, wherever it might lead.

Girl, YOU DID IT! Congrats! You’ve worked hard and persevered to the end–proud of you! Wishing you all the best in this new season of life <3 God will never leave you nor forsake you–I pray you witness His glory in post-grad life in such a tangible way. I'm confident God has great things in store for you and look forward to cheering you on as you thrive and flourish 🙂 Love you!

Tia! You wonderful human being. Thank you for always greeting me with a smile and hug. Thank you for letting me crash in your office when I just needed a quiet space. Thank you for mentoring me in all things theatre. I love you so much and I’ll miss you more than you can believe!

You did it Tia! Thank you for your friendship and for being an ear when I need to talk.

You have been such a good friend over the past few years. I enjoyed our times working exec as brother/sister House and getting to know you ever since. Your kindness and goodness are evident to all who meet you.

Tia, King’s changed for the better when you came here. You are a beautiful, vivacious presence on campus and the city. I have loved getting to know you and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for you! Keep dancing, queens! #istandwithSCWAM

Tia!!! you are a firecracker!! it’s been a joy to share these past couple of years with you. your smile and laughter can immediately brighten a room! your hard work has definitely payed off. SO proud of you!!

Tia, I don’t know how to put it into words how much I will miss you. You are the purest soul that I’ve met and I’m so grateful to have known you. I pray for the best for you. I can’t wait to see where the future takes you. ❤️

Tia, I am honored to be your friend and so glad I got to know you in all of beauty and vulnerability. I am escatic to continue our friendship as Sisters in Christ ! 🙂

Tia! Tina! Tea-ah!

You’ve done it! Congratulations! Your persistence has paid off and you are now graduating. The King’s community has been bettered by your participation. I can’t wait to see where you go from here!

You’re the friend I always needed, and I can’t wait to make more memories with you. Your heart is so full of goodness and I can’t wait to see where the Lord takes you. Congratulations dear friend, the best is yet to come!

You’re one of the best people I know, and I’m confident that will never change <3 Tia, you're such a joy to all those around you. Thank you for being a part of so many of my memories here at King's! I'll always love you because of the person you are, and because of our first Statesmanship last year together – some wild and crazy times lol Congrats queen!

My lovely, lovely friend, who literally always had a smile or a hug or an encouraging word for my poor, stressed self at that back table: I am so, so proud of you. It’s been so hard, and you have come so, so far. No matter what the future may hold, I am in your corner, and I am RELENTLESSLY proud of you. <3

Tia!! Congrats, QUEEN! King’s and QE1 are better after being served by you. Thankful for the love and care you take after people. I can’t wait to see all the amazing things you do next. Cheers, Brittany

To the girl who has been a shoulder to cry on, a friend to laugh with, and one of very few constants over the last three years – thank you. You have brought joy and light to the darkest of moments. I will forever be amazed by your determination to stand up for what’s right and your ability to love widely and deeply at the same time. My prayer for you is that you learn to love yourself with that same fire. I’m so thankful for the experiences, the good and the bad, that brought us together and the bonds we formed that will last a lifetime, regardless of the distance or time apart. Cheers to many more adventures! Can’t wait for that Georgia game 😉

Congratulations Tia!!! I just love your fun-loving spirit and your readiness to make a celebration out of anything. The Way of the Tea was such a sweet memory with you (who knows, maybe we can do it again and make it a legacy 😉), as well as Abby’s birthday party where you crushed it as Frank Sinatra/emcee. I’ll miss running into you all the time, but I’m so stoked to see what God has in store for you in this new season!!

Tia McCord! I love our friendship. Since freshman year, you have been a force of love, encouragement, compassion, and growth. From our fleeting creative projects to our office chats, I’ve treasured every time our paths have crossed in our pursuits at King’s. You are an incredible woman who celebrates people so well and invites them to share in your joy. Can’t wait to continue the fun post grad 🙂

Tia… Tia, Tia, Tia. What do I even say. First off you’re super cool and I am just honored to know you. Like how are you that cool? It’s wild man. Secondly I am SO proud of you! You have achieved so much and done so with grace, even if you were tired or wanted to burn down the world (we’ve all been there). If I had known the moment I met you that we would have the most wildest of times I would have run the other way… I’m kidding we are super iconic and literally have the most fun ever. From our long chats on absolutely everything to our long winded attempt to watch through LOTR and Glee (we really gotta finish both of those), you continue to fill me with happiness and your outlook on life is inspiring. I am so proud of all the work you did in school, in your house, and with TKP. You are so talented and the world does not know what’s about to hit them. Just a few more things… CARTHAGE TILL I DIE!!!… and also “blank blank blank” *secret whispered thing just incase Holly reads this*.
I love you lots!!! Congratulations babes!

Congratulations, you absolute angel. This campus is going to miss your joyful presence SO much, we aren’t ready for it. I’ll be in your corner, excited to see all that you do next!

Congratulations Tia!! You are one of the kindest people I know, it has been a pleasure bumping into you throughout my time at King’s. Best of luck in all your endeavors moving forward!

TIA!! i love you so much and you are a queen! this year has been a 10000x better because of you and you have made my first three years at King’s so joyous. From surviving statesmanship to just surviving life, you are a steadfast friend. Can’t wait to celebrate and jam out to AJR soon when we aren’t drowning in finals. I am so proud of you and I really don’t know what this school will be like next year without you in classes with me. you are beautiful and I know you are gonna be great 🙂

This past year has been a whirlwind. I can’t believe that we made it (with our sanity partially intact). You’re going to do great things in this world. Keep loving hard, serving God, and pushing through. I’m here every step of the way.

Tia, I greatly enjoyed having you in Shakespeare last year. Your energy and enthusiasm are wonderful assets and a blessing to everyone around you. Congratulations, and all the best!

Tia! So proud of you for finishing another cycle in your life. You are so ready to go out into the real world and conquer whatever life puts ahead of you. Cannot wait to see all the amazing things you are going to achieve.
It’s been a pleasure working with you, getting to know you, and becoming your friend!
You are inspiring to all of us!

– Marcos

Tia!! I adore you, and am so proud of all the amazingness you’ve accomplished with such grace and kindness these past crazy years. I can’t wait to see what you do next!! Congratulations friend!!!

Congratulations, Tia! I so appreciate your spirit of hospitality and earnestness and I enjoyed working with you on the Class of 2021 senior gift. I look forward to getting to know you better in the future!


I remember when you first came to King’s. 🙂 You are an amazing, God-fearing woman. You are a fantastic friend! I will miss seeing you every week at King’s and QE1 events! I am inspired by you and your perspective on the world. Thank you for being an example. Thank you for being a joy to be around! Thank you for always being brave and vulnerable enough to share your story and focus on impacting others. Let me know if you ever need anything! I hope we stay in touch! Miss you! Congratulations on graduating!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 <3

Oh, Tia my love, I am so proud of you! You bring such joy and enthusiasm to everything we ever talk about, and I love you for it. I love how once we discovered we had so many things in common – from our love of figure skaters to Jess from Gilmore Girls – we immediately were the best of friends. I can’t wait to see where the world takes you. Love you tons!!!

My dear Tia: your smile lights up a room, my friend, and your laugh is infectious. You lead with grace and love deeply. I remember when you first came to King’s and thinking that QE1 really lucked out getting you 🙂 I am so in awe of your passion, bravery, and vulnerability and I love you SO much. Congrats on graduating!!!
