Students, parents, and grandparents alike enjoyed a small taste of the soon-approaching graduation weekend by recognizing our 2018 Senior Class. Friday night vespers was spent with various staff members reflecting on the good, as well as the funny, memories of each individual senior. Hannah Phelps' thoughts were, “It was a moment we had been waiting three and a half years for, and hearing how much the staff cares about our lives and who we are was really meaningful to me.” The class was in shock of how fast their turn in the spotlight had come.
Saturday night, the Seniors hosted Campion’s Annual Talent Show full of astounding, comical, and surprising performances. Of the ten participating acts, seven chosen judges critiqued and voted Rachel Marpaung in 3rd place, Madi Jordan in 2nd place, and Jordi Obregon and Austin Rotinsulu for a winning 1st place. Second place winning Madi Jordan recounts, “Talent show was a fun and great experience. It was the first time fiddling for me, so I was both nervous and excited when the curtains opened.” Talent Show made for a successful and entertaining evening for all.
Lastly, this busy weekend ended with honoring the hard working scholars and National Honors Society members of Campion Academy. Over a light brunch, students with a 3.5 and above GPA were recognized and applauded. Fifteen selected students were also recipients for additional scholarships to aid in their tuition.
Senior recipient, Angie Cedano expresses her thanks, “I really appreciated receiving the scholarship. It was interesting to hear the stories behind the people who choose to donate money to help us receive a quality Christian education at Campion.”
All in all, the students and visiting parents delighted in the events of the senior recognition weekend.

For Campion it has been a tradition for students to make signs to bring to the annual Pepsi Center basketball game against Mile High Academy. Each year the signs become more and more creative, and this year Student Association wanted to award these high-achieving poster makers.
Faith P. mentioned, "I not only want to show my support by making a sign, but also wish to make a spiritual impact." She wrote a bible verse on her poster. What a great way to reflect the values of Campion!
Two more students were asked what they liked about the poster competition. Jessica said her favorite part is,"Seeing what great ideas people have to portray on their individual posters."
Hilary added, "It is always fun to make posters for Pepsi Center because it is awesome to show our teams not only that we want them to win, but that we support them 100%."
All of the posters were judged by a few SA members and the winner was selected. The 1st place victor was Faith P.! Her poster was not only incredibly artistic but inspirational as well. Competitions like this are part of what makes Campion Academy a fun place to be!
