WYLIE, Texas – Feb. 20, 2014Lake Pointe Imaging Center in Wylie has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in computed tomography (CT) as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR), a national organization providing programs that focus on medical imaging, radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive healthcare services. CT scanning, or CAT scanning, is a noninvasive medical test designed to assist physicians in the diagnosis and personalization of treatments for patients with various medical conditions.

Bennie Vittetoe with TCA kindergarten students

 On Feb. 7, Trinity Christian Academy's (TCA) lower school students celebrated their 100th day of school by dressing up like 100-year-olds, popping 100 balloons, parachuting 100 ping pong balls, playing 100-themed games and even receiving a visit from a 100-year-old grandmother, Bennie Vittetoe.

Bennie was interviewed by lower school principal Rod Morris on “KTCA,” the school’s student-anchored morning broadcast, and shared what it was like to walk to school every day and grow up without TV, cell phones and air conditioning. Bennie’s great-granddaughter, Olivia Hammonds, a current kindergartner at TCA, watched the interview with her mom, Erin Hammonds, who graduated from TCA in 1997. Olivia said she thought it would “be neat to live to be 100” and if she did she would probably “play bridge a lot with (her) friends,” since that’s what her great-grandmother Bennie does.
