It is exciting to see our students dream big and aim high. Recently, several of our students had notable achievements that are worth sharing.
We’ll start with senior Jaden Sheffstall. Jaden, who is an AP English Language and Composition student, was surprised to learn that a piece she submitted to the Young Writer’s Contest will be published in a book showcasing young writers.
Jaden wasn’t alone in receiving recognition this week. Students in the 5th, 7th, and 9th grades presented projects for the Science Fair while students in the 6th, 8th, and 10th grades participated in the Social Studies Fair. While it was evident that many of the students invested a lot of thought and effort in their projects, not all of them would progress to the next level of competition.
After the judging, a select group of students qualified for regionals. Everett Fisher (5th), Ella Moorehead (7th), and Marcos Kniska (9th) will advance to the Regional Science Fair. Additionally, Ariona McClung & Rebecca Cumpston (team), Tori Hovatter, Emma Jenkins, Chayce Adams, Thomas Dinkel, and Merci Crites were selected to represent Trinity Christian School at the Regional Social Studies Fair. Thomas, a 10th grader, and a 1st place winner at last year’s State Social Studies Fair was not required to participate in this year’s fair but chose to compete because he wants to utilize his God-given gifts. “This year I am striving to go the extra mile with many different ideas and projects,” said Thomas. His goal is to make it to the state fair again.
Doors of opportunity have opened for another 10th grader, Noah Toler. Noah is a member of the Praise Team and has been playing guitar for just two years. He will soon have the honor of playing the Star Spangled Banner at two significant West Virginia sporting events, the State Swim Championships and the Girls Basketball State Tournament.
Lastly, the Warrior soccer team learned it had achieved outstanding success in the classroom with a team GPA of 4.12 for the first semester.
This list is by no means an exhaustive one. It is truly a joy to celebrate our students and acknowledge their hard work. Keep aiming high, Warriors!
