Former Lady Cougar and current King’s Academy Lady Lion Raley Snodgrass will be playing basketball on the next level. She has committed to becoming a Lady Royal of Johnson University.
When asked about how she came to choose Johnson University Snodgrass said, “I chose Johnson because when I went to visit it just felt like home. It felt like I was meant to be there. I loved the coaching staff and the team and the way things were ran. I also loved that it is a Christian school.” Snodgrass said she plans to major in education with the goal of coaching some day.
When asked about how soon she may see time on the court as a Lady Royal she said,” Currently I’m enjoying my time being a TKA Lady Lion and I plan to continue to work and get stronger and better and hope to see playing time next year!”
Johnson University, located on the banks of the French Broad River, is a private, Christian university and is affiliated with the Independent Christian Church of the Restoration Movement. Ashley Johnson founded the school in 1893, it was an extension of the Correspondence Bible College. The original name was The School of the Evangelists. The school was renamed Johnson Bible College in 1909 after a petition by the students to have the school named after the founder and first president Ashley Johnson. This name was used for 102 years until the college became Johnson University on July 1, 2011. Johnson University is accredited both regionally and nationally. Johnson first received regional accreditation in 1979 from the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Programs in the School of Bible & Theology and the School of Congregational Ministry are both nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the Association for Biblical Higher Education. The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs has granted accreditation to the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences in the concentrations of Clinical Mental Health Counseling (M.A.) and School Counseling (M.A.). The Teacher Education Program is approved by the Tennessee State Board of Education.
In closing Snodgrass was appreciative of those who have helped her in her journey saying, “I want to thank all my past and former coaches and teammates, and also trainers!!! A special thank you to my coach Blake Derrick for all the opportunities he’s presented to me. And my family and friends that have supported me through every step of the way!”
