As this school year reaches its end, the Senior Class of 2011 grows both excited and anxious for the day on which they will receive their diplomas. This is the day that really marks the end of high school and the true beginning of their lives as adults.
On this day, CCA will join thousands of high school seniors who will don their caps and gowns to reach that monumental milestone.
This can be an exciting yet frightening experience, as students may not know what exactly to expect. While looking back at his high school experience and thinking of graduation day having finally arrived, senior David Vendrell was at a loss for words, “I don’t think I have any real expectations for graduation. It’s almost surreal at this point.”
For Vendrell, as for many other seniors, the facilities at Calvary Christian Academy are great, but nothing makes you want to stay more than the phenomenal teachers and your friends. Vendrell said, “I am definitely excited to pursue my dreams in film, but anxious about leaving everyone I’ve known for so long.”
“I think, collectively as a class, we are all beyond excited for finally taking the next step forward,” said Vendrell, who is one of the Top Twelve graduates:
Melissa King 4.666
Macie Sweet 4.660
Brianna Marecki 4.628
John Bartos 4.608
Tyler Middlebrooks 4.477
Joshua Rich 4.496
Jessica Leutzinger 4.469
Drew Anderson 4.428
Drew Kendall 4.434
Meagan Kreisel 4.421
David Vendrell 4.385
Amanda Romagnolo 4.369
Brittany Vasquez 4.364
Amanda Romagnolo and Brittany Vasquez were tied for 12th place.
As a whole, the Class of 2011 is an extraordinary group of students who is unquestionably united. God has done amazing things through this class and our prayers are that He will continue to guide them individually as they venture out into the world doing His work.
Graduation is going to be a sad time this year as we see these godly students leave. We will miss them immensely and strive to follow their example in the upcoming years.
