“They just don’t make things like they used to”. I hear it a lot; about houses. Tools.
Furniture. You name it. It seems like no matter what it is, it’s just not built the way it used to be.
You know, back when things were built to last. Built solid and with real materials, not the cheap
stuff they’re using today. Doesn’t that make you wonder if the same holds true for the youth of
this generation? Do they know the value of a dollar? Do they know how to work? Are they kind
and polite or are they so attached to their phones that they don’t even notice others around
My family had the privilege of hosting two Campion Academy sophomore students from
Brazil this summer in our home. I wondered how they would be. How are Campion students
built? Are they flimsy like cheap furniture? I’m thrilled to report, I couldn’t have been happier with
what I saw from these boys. The students we had in our home were kind, polite, helpful,
hardworking and generous. They were all the things I would have hoped our students at
Campion to be. A summer was enough time to see their true characters come out. I was so
proud that the Campion students of today are still built as solid as they were in the good ole’
days. Come see for yourself this alumni weekend how the students at Campion Academy truly
are. You’ll be glad you did.
