Pastor Debra McCormick is offered a hearty “breakfast,” served up by a three-year-old preschool cowboy at Rusk’s Christ the Redeemer Academy and Child Care Center. McCormick oversees the private Christian school, which this year has an enrollment of 11 students in what she describes as a “one-room schoolhouse” setting. The school has started its eighth year, providing students with individualized attention in a Bible-based program.
