Each month, we recognize a senior who is nominated by MCCS faculty and staff based on spiritual leadership, character, academic achievement or improvement, perseverance through trials, and other aspects of a student’s life and academic career.
Ethan Miller received the Student of the Month award for February. Read his interview below. Congratulations, Ethan!
What are your plans after graduation?
“I am planning on going to college somewhere or taking classes online, but I’m still not sure where yet. I’m still waiting to decide where God wants me to go.”
What classes have helped you toward your potential career goal?
“I enjoyed Bible with Mr. Owlet… and the conversations we had on different topics throughout the Bible. I also liked Mrs. Aument’s history classes because she makes history easy to learn and fun. I enjoyed physics with Mrs. Lamb because of the different labs we did and learning about the different laws of the world”
What sports, clubs, or activities have you been involved in? Any awards or special recognitions?
“I have played golf here at Mount Calvary my whole high school career. I really enjoyed doing that. I’ve been a member of the NHS for the past two years and I enjoyed going to Norfolk, Virginia this year. I have been a class chaplain for four years in my class and have had the opportunity to share and teach middle school. I’ve been on the praise team here for two years and because of that, I have been able to play at my church now.
How have the teachers at MCCS made an impact on your life?
“ The teacher’s curriculum all have a part of God in them and show that He’s in Math, English, History, and all the other classes and it’s impactful to see how they incorporate God in their daily lives and work. I have also seen this first hand because of being a teacher intern for the past two years; helping Mrs. Lamb with physics and now Mrs. Aument now with history. It has just really been a good experience for me.
What has God been teaching you?
“I tend to see things analytically and analyze how the facts and the parts of things work and I’ve kind of done this in the past with my relationship with God, but He’s been teaching me that I need to balance out my knowledge of him and also my faith in him so that they work together. This verse I found recently is in Hebrews and it says ”Without faith it is impossible to please God ”, and he has given me the ability and is continuing to show me that I need to have faith in him.
Do you have any advice for younger students?
“Just always having God at the center of our lives and doing everything for Him and His glory alone. Without God we are nothing and having Him at the core of everything we do is really fulfilling for our lives.”
