Class of 2020

Updates from the Class of 2020 (Winter 2017)


The sophomores stayed busy during the second quarter and it flew by! In October, the class gathered as to pray and reflect on our sophomore retreat. Students spent time in small and large groups sharing on the theme of leadership. Their perspectives were encouraging, and we are blessed to have these perceptive, driven, discerning leaders as forces for good in our community.
 
We continued the conversation about college, as students took the practice ACT and spent an afternoon at Denison University. Many students started to imagine themselves in college. Maybe some of them will find themselves back there in just over two years!
 
Of course, our academic pursuits continued and students met increasing demands in the classroom. Outside of the classroom, students are learning through their involvement in extracurricular activities and winter sports teams: basketball and wrestling. In PWSP, all students received a performance review, met with their supervisors, and set goals for areas of improvement for next semester.
 
Second semester will explore the theme of mentorship and focus on personal brand and the strengths each student brings to the table. We look forward to another fantastic semester with this class and can’t wait to see their continued growth as individuals and as a community!
