Our mission at WCCS is “Educating students to bless our world as disciples of Jesus Christ.” How do you believe your time here at WCCS has prepared you for God’s unique purpose for your life? What are your future plans beyond college? Attending WCCS has given me many outlets to use and develop the gifts that God has given me. I have been able to practice leadership, which I believe is one skill God may have me use more of in the future. I am planning on studying computer science and, Lord willing, use those skills to serve on the mission field.

If your time here at WCCS were a story, what would be the running theme? Friendships and encouragement from teachers have both been running themes for me here at WCCS. A unique aspect of this school is the ability to create friendships with teachers. They all have a personally encouraging attitude towards their students.

How has learning in a Christian environment positively affected your education? It is comforting to know that the teachers are Christians, and so when I ask a question about faith or its correlation to whatever I am studying, I know that they will answer it Biblically and to the best of their ability.

What is your best memory from your time at WCCS? My favorite memory is the final performance of Fiddler on the Roof. Everyone on cast had so much fun backstage and during intermission, and the audience was amazing. I will never forget what theatre here at WCCS has given me.

Has there been a teacher at WCCS that has impacted your faith, education or personal growth in a significant way? If you were to say thank you to this person, what would you say? I would say "thank you" to Ms. Regier for showing me what standing up for our faith and turning the other cheek looks like. Her constant humility is absolutely outstanding and inspirational to me.
