Dakota Bateman


Hey! My name is Dakota Bateman. I’m a senior Electrical Engineering major with a business minor from the small town of Lynchburg, TN. I’m a huge sports fan especially baseball. I enjoy cheesy jokes, math, and ice cream. My favorite verse is Isaiah 40:31 “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” #wingsup

Alex Gooch


My name is Alex Gooch, and I am a sophomore nursing major from Dickson, Tn. I am proud to call Cookeville my second home! I am a lover of Mexican food, goats, Dickson Donuts, and Netflix. But above all, I love the Lord. “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to his power that is at work within us” Ephesians 3:20

Austin Thomas


Hey everyone, my name is Austin Thomas and I’m from here in Cookeville, Tennessee. I’m a junior at Tech studying finance. I love the outdoors, UT football, being with friends and eating dessert! One of my favorite verses is Daniel 3:18 because it reminds us no matter what happens in life, God is still good and will always be there for us.

Jay Glenn


Hey! My name is Jay Glenn and I’m from Clarksville, TN! I’m a sophomore Mechanical Engineer here at Tech, and I love it! I enjoy playing all the intermural sports and having fun! My favorite bible verse is 1 Corinthians 10:13 because it shows God is always there to lend a hand to us!
