At WCCS, we provide students with a well-rounded academic experience. However, it is also our desire that the student experience extend beyond the walls of the classroom to bless the community around us. This week, we have asked student council president, Jessica Hicks, to share some goals that student council has for the student body going into the new school year. Check it out!
This year, I was voted student council president by the WCCS students. It is such an honor to represent my fellow classmates and work hard to help improve student life. This year, the theme verse chosen for student council is 1 John 3:18 which reads, “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” With this verse in mind, one area I have encouraged our student body to focus on this year is service. By serving others, it allows us to show our Christ-like attitudes to our brothers and sisters in Christ. Remember, our actions
speak louder than our words, so we must be willing to actually serve others in order to please God. Students will have monthly service opportunities in the Rock Hill community that they can choose to participate in, however not all service projects have to be large and drastic. It’s the little things that can make a huge difference! The student body should strive to make a difference in not only the community, but also in the school hallways, classrooms, and lives of fellow students and teachers. Here are a few more ideas that I pray will make a difference in this school daily!
Flash a smile at someone having a bad day or leave an encouraging note in their locker.
Say a little prayer for a friend. It can make a difference in their life that they will never forget.
A little bit of kindness can go a long way. Everyone’s story is different and you never know what someone may be struggling with.
Lead by example and reach out and form relationships with underclassmen. This will grow their love for Christ.
Show appreciation to your teachers! Volunteering to pass out papers, cleaning up after yourself, or simply saying “thank you”, can give them a glimpse of gratitude that will make their day!
To the WCCS community as a whole, I challenge all of you to do the best you can. Start serving the ones around you, and to make a real difference this school year!
