On Saturday night, teachers recognized high achieving students by giving them awards in many fields: sports, humor, and of course academics.
Pastor Taylor started off the program with his worship thought. “He reminded all of us that although our athletic and academic achievements are important, they cannot compare to what God can achieve through us and our willingness to use those achievements for his glory,” Kylie Wehling senior explained.
As the recipient of multiple awards, Kylie continued, “It was really cool to see all my fellow teammates and classmates get recognized for all their hard work this year! What most surprised me is getting the College Writing award. I honestly hate writing because it takes me so long, but I was glad that my hard work showed through!”
Colton Herber junior exclaimed, “It was nice to get up there and see the hard work pay off. I enjoyed getting the sports awards because I could look back at all the fun I had playing soccer and basketball.”
Many of the teachers gave awards to the students with the top three grades in their classes. Eldridge Woy, freshman who got one of the awards, commented, “Seeing my first awards night was surprisingly fun! It made me feel like I should start trying in sports and school for the awards and appreciation. When my name got called just for one award, that was greatly appreciated, but I want more! Overall, awards night was really enjoyable!”
During the program, the deans announced the new RAs for both boys and girls for next year. “The program was really cool; it was really nice to recognize the people who put in all the hard work. For me it was super fun when I got called up as a new RA because I had been dreaming about getting this position since Freshman year. Overall it was a very fun night,” Faith Evert, junior, stated.
In Campion’s annual tradition, the end of the year video produced by Noah Sturges culminated the program. “The highlight of the night had to be the video made by one of my friends. I already knew he was good at his video making, but he completely out did himself that night,” Edward Camas senior said. “There were clips of times I don’t even remember and it was a good reminder of all the fun I’ve had here at Campion. I know I’m going to be looking back at that video many years in the future.”
