Tully Schaffner is graduating from Bartlesville High School in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. “My future plans are to attend an undergraduate college to study philosophy and religion, then go to seminary to study Christian Worldview and Apologetics, and finally to earn my Ph.D. in a specific area of Theology,” said Schaffner.
Hayley Luna, graduating from Lawrence High School in Lawrence, Kansas, said, “Because I pushed myself to reach a healthy balance of many activities I feel more than equipped to embrace college and my life after with the same determination and dedication to do what I want to do and fulfill what I am required to do.” Luna plans to double major in political science and international business, earn a law degree, and eventually participate in federal politics.
Benjamin Olsen, graduating from Shiloh Christian School in Springdale, Arkansas, volunteered with Habitat for Humanity of Washington County, First United Presbyterian Church Vacation Bible School, and NWA Miracle League. Olsen said, “Seeing joy in the faces of those you are helping is more valuable than any material thing I could receive. I believe these experiences have helped me develop into the man I am today.”
Ashley Williams is graduating from Seven Lakes High School in Fulshear, Texas. Williams said, “I plan on graduating in four years with a bachelor's degree in environmental engineering then head off to graduate school to get a master's degree in environmental geoscience while working for an environmental company that plans on making a difference. After I graduate with a master's degree, I plan on getting a job with either the Environmental Protection Agency or a large engineering company that has a focus on renewable energy.”
