Sarah
Valedictorian
Class of 2018

My name is Sarah, and I am currently a junior at UMKC pursuing a double degree in English and Music! I attended FCA from 6th grade until I graduated high school in 2018. Some of my experiences at FCA include being involved with the daily worship team, serving as both Vice-President and President of our Student Government Association (SGA), and participating in Bible Club and Spanish Club. I was also honored as a National Merit Finalist while in high school. At UMKC, I have been on the Dean’s list and have been awarded Bright Flight money, a UMKC Trustee’s Finalist scholarship, the UMKC Achievement Award, and the Curator’s Renewal Scholarship. 

As a college student, I spend my free time teaching private violin lessons, singing at the International House of Prayer, and giving leadership to as well as helping lead worship at the young adult ministry at my church. Some of my favorite experiences at UMKC have been playing violin in the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts and having my writing published in the 2019 edition of UMKC’s Sosland Journal and 2021 edition of the campus’s No. 1 Magazine. 

Now that I am attending a public university, I could not be more thankful for my high school Bible teacher, Brandon Hammonds, and the hours he spent wrestling through questions with us, teaching us things about the Scriptures that only Bible school students normally get to learn, and speaking encouragement over us. I am also so thankful for the years I spent learning how to lead worship at school and being empowered to find my voice as a singer and musician. I can confidently say that the critical thinking and writing skills I learned in high school have made me a more confident college student. Anyone out there who is thinking about attending FCA, just know this: Nowhere else will you find a group of friends and teachers who believe in you more! You will be known and loved.

My name is Savannah and I am currently a freshman at Haskell Indian Nations University where I’m pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science before entering Medical School at the University of Kansas. While at Forerunner Christian Academy,

I was able to grow in my gift as a drummer and as a leader by serving on the worship team. I loved playing the drums on the worship team! I am also realizing how much the academic studies I received while at FCA helped to prepare me for my college coursework. My academic advisor, Ms. Blig, helped me set up a volunteer position at St. Luke’s hospital my junior year. It was while serving at St. Luke’s that I was able to confirm my decision to go into the medical field.

In addition to my love for drumming and a growing passion for the medical field, I received a firm Biblical foundation from the content studied in my Bible classes. To this day, I still think of Mr. Nork’s encouragement to “make good choices” as we left his history class to go home each day.

While at Haskell Indian Nations University, I have been on the President’s honor roll and received a contributions scholarship award from the American Indian College Fund and the Bureau of Indian Education. I was also the recipient of a grant from my tribe, the Muscogee Creek Nation for maintaining a 3.8+ grade point average.

If you value small class sizes and are looking for a school that has a family atmosphere where the teachers and staff genuinely care about the students, you have found your home!
