Celebrating Two Significant Accomplishments
MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
This week, we celebrated two significant accomplishments with our students.
Wednesday, February 7, 2018 was National Signing Day. On this day, 13 of our student-athletes committed to playing athletics at the collegiate level: Sela Clifford (Spring Arbor University – Tennis), Ben Pelletier (Adrian College – Football), Anna Clark (Hillsdale College – Swimming), Austin Maynard (Adrian College – Football), Ian Williams (Siena Heights – Football), Anna Manchester (Adrian College – Golf/Dance), Troy Kutcha (Siena Heights – Football), Kyle Minder (Siena Heights – Football), Sebastian Toland (Northern Michigan – Football), Taylor Smith (Western Michigan – Tennis), Richard Clark (University of Kentucky – Riflery), Cameron White (Northern Michigan – Football), Cameron Kelley (Jackson College – Soccer).
Then, on Thursday February 8, our wrestling team won their district event, after many years of forfeiting matches because they had too few wrestlers to complete. Congratulations to Coach Broughman, Coach Eaker, Coach Teachout, Ben Cooper, Axel Arce, Jeremy Bradley, Riley Eaker, Drew Savicke, Patrick Lucas, Reid Garcia, Jackson White, Connor Fitzpatrick, Johnny Teachout, Mau Tavera, Robert Williams, Wally Gilbert, and Drake Frederick.
These students and many others highlight the goal of Lumen Christi athletics: to develop in character and faith individually and together. Individually, our student athletes learn that consistent hard work over a long period of time produces changes in your mental and physical state; that the discipline of mind, heart, body, and time makes you better in all that you do, especially class work; and that you are better than some and not as good as some, but if you are always working to get better you are the best.
Together, they learn that we are all better if we help one another be our best; that kindness and encouragement and understanding mean as much as hard work and discipline; and that the greater good is always more important than “I”.
We are proud of our student athletes for their development of faith and character, and grateful for the recognitions and championships that come because of that faith and character.
In the Light of Christ,
