On Monday, May 7, 2018 five Faith Christian High School senior project finalists presented topics of their choice to a panel of adjudicators, family, friends and the community. The personal insight each student brought to their topic, bolstered by months of research resulted in powerful presentations.
The FCHS Senior Project is a requirement for graduation and consists of months of researching and writing an 8-12 page position paper and oral presentation on any topic of interest to the student, on which the student takes a strong position using logic and persuasive argument. A full examination includes a Biblical worldview as outlined in scripture and the doctrine of Christian denominations.
Paul DeMeritt, Senior English instructor and Senior Project Co-coordinator at Faith Christian explains: “I love the Senior Project requirement; and while I know most of the kids wouldn’t say they love it, I know they see its value as part of our curriculum. Our kids invariably come back from their freshman year at college with glowing testimonies of how the Senior Project truly prepared them to excel at the college and university level - and in business, career and ministry as well!”
Our five finalists this year truly showed that they are well prepared for continuing higher education and we have no doubt that they will continue to champion their selected causes and bring further awareness to their topics. Below is a recording of each presentation which are available on our FCS YouTube channel.
First Place: Gillian Greathouse - Blue Lives Matter
Second Place: Lydia Crist – Veteran Suicide Prevention: Fighting the Battle Within the Mind
Third Place: Makalyn Hannold – ADD/ADHD – A National Crisis
Brenna Briscoe – Sexual Assault: The Silent Epidemic
Zachary Rodriguez - The Use and Abuse of Alcohol
Faith Christian High School continued our partnership with Azusa Pacific University Mexico Outreach for another year of life-changing ministry serving in Cuernavaca, Mexico and surrounding areas. The trip took place during Easter break under the leadership of Derek Morrison and Henry Herrera. FCHS sophomore, Lilli Elliott, shares her experience.
"I have gone to Mexico for two years and this year is my favorite out of the two. We started each day with vacation Bible school for the kids from two different churches. In the afternoon each day we did something different: we went to a women’s rehab home, a senior care home, the outskirts of the city, and the park to witness.
When we were in Mexico I knew that we were going to reach and help people and maybe even change their lives, but I myself left Mexico feeling very blessed.
The people were always very grateful for the prayers or the songs we sang and the kids loved the VBS. Each time we encountered someone they were so open to what we had to say and usually very open to prayer. It was so amazing to see the value one conversation or one smile has. We were fed very well spiritually through chapel and also physically through the tacos. Mexico is something I love and look forward to every year. I can’t wait to go back!"
Lilli captured and compiled this video of the week. Subscribe to our FCS YouTube channel to see more videos.
Interested in experiencing all of this? Join us next year April 12 - 20, 2019. FCHS Mexico Outreach is open to all current Faith Christian High School students, their parents, staff and alumni! Registration will begin in Fall 2018.
