Students at Legacy Christian Academy have had many great memories, whether they have been there since elementary school or just the past few years.
Legacy Christian Academy, formerly known as Meadow Creek Christian School, is unique because students can be in the same building from kindergarten through 12th grade. By having this experience, they not only form a close bond with their class and other students around the same age but with the teachers as well.
Isak Larson, who enrolled at the school in ninth grade, shared a story of how he and fellow Class of 2013 graduate Trent Goodrich started talking with Ben McGowan at 9 p.m. in the parking lot and ended up talking for two hours. Larson said Jake Mulvihill “made the Bible come alive to me and made me want to learn more.” Dwight Nelson made him feel like a superstar, he said.
Cheyenne Ramsay remembered coming to her first day of school at Meadow Creek Christian School in third grade wearing a dress and sandals with socks. At the time she worried her parents’ forced wardrobe would make it hard to connect with people, but she made a lot of friends over the years and shared a few memorable moments. The most recent memories were the senior class trip and senior prom.
“I’m honored to call every one of you my friends and am excited to see what the future holds,” Ramsay said.
Michael Enfield and Emily Kirby, senior class president, issued challenges to the 39 students of the Class of 2013, which includes them.
Enfield told his classmates to “strive for excellence in everything you do” and be willing to take career risks even if friends and family think they should settle for something that does not interest them but is more stable initially.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living out someone else’s life. Don’t let someone tell you what to do,” he said.
Kirby said now that the Class of 2013 is leaving the protective walls of Legacy Christian Academy, they must be ready to fight for Christianity.
“Don’t fall into complacency and just be a good person. We must fight for our faith,” she said.
