Kathie Nolan, daughter-in-law of Dr. and Mrs. Nolan, has been the art teacher at Nolan Elementary since it opened in 1999.

She has spent countless hours during the summers painting numerous medieval murals throughout the school. Mrs. Nolan has also created indescribable works of art for MEF, an eagle painting on behalf of Nolan Elementary memorializing the Twin Towers' tragedy, as well as art for teachers' instructional needs.

However, Mrs. Nolan's dreams was to have a medieval labyrinth area for Nolan students. This would provide an inspirational, reflective, and educational setting for students, educators, and Nolan families.

A Junior League Grant was written two years ago to provide funding for the creation of the medieval labyrinth. Many thanks to Shelly Young's parents, Ellen and Courtney Rollinson, for removing the Bermuda grass during the summer. Words cannot express Nolan's appreciation also to Randy Ausdran, owner of Mountain Top Landscaping. His crew began the first phase of the construction and stonework for the medieval labyrinth with a crushed gravel patio and cobble flagstone border.

Kathie Nolan is dedicating her medieval labyrinth in honor of her mother-in-law, Anne Nolan. There will be a dogwood tree planted in her memory.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Kathie Nolan and the Nolan family for the recent passing of Mrs. Anne Nolan.

A life memorial service will be held for Mrs. Anne Nolan at the Signal Mountain Baptist Church on Monday, January 23rd, 2017 at 2:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, contributions towards Mrs. Anne Nolan's medieval labyrinth can be made to Nolan Elementary, with "Medieval Labyrinth" in the memo line.
