￼￼What do you love about Eastern Christian School?
“The thing I love most about Eastern Christian are the relationships between students and teachers. I have kept relationships with nearly all my teachers even after leaving their classrooms, and I honestly cannot point to any teacher that I have had that I didn’t like as a person.”
Describe one of your favorite teachers and tell why he/she is a favorite:
“One of my favorite teachers is Mr. Beverly, who has been my Humanities teacher for two years, as well as my American Law and International Relations teacher. Mr. Beverly clearly has a passion for the subjects he teaches, and his constant mission to students to reevaluate their own beliefs and thoughts is only complimented by his quick wit and caring heart.”
In what ways have you grown in your faith as a result of your experience at Eastern Christian School?
“I have had the opportunity to lead in weekly chapel for nearly all my years at Eastern Christian. This year, I am also taking an Apologetics class which is helping me in my ability to explain my faith.”
How do you experience an education that is engaging, nurturing and transforming at EC?
“The care of teachers, the rigor of the Humanities program, and ability to serve and lead my school are all indicators of an education that is engaging, nurturing, and transforming.”
How do you feel that EC is preparing you for graduation, college and life? What are your plans after you graduate?
“The Humanities curriculum at Eastern Christian is superb, and each year it has easily been my favorite class through the pairings of teachers, the style through which the material is taught, and the ability to share my opinions and thoughts about what I learn in an open forum. After graduation, I will be attending Columbia University in New York City studying biochemistry. After that, I plan on getting my M.D. and becoming a psychiatrist.”
