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.
Kiley Etter received the Student of the Month award for November! Read her interview below. Congratulations, Kiley!
What are your plans after graduation?
“After high school, I plan on majoring in elementary education, so being able to help out as a teacher’s assistant here at Mount Calvary has really helped me discover my love for kids. Originally, I wanted to be a high school teacher, but now I realize that with the younger kids is where I’m meant to be.”
What sports, clubs, or activities have you been involved in? Any awards or special recognitions?
“During my time at Mount Calvary, I’ve participated in National Honor Society, student council, and class chaplain. I’ve also played volleyball the last four years.”
How have the teachers at MCCS made an impact on your life?
“My teachers here at Mount Calvary really care for each and every one of us. That’s really important to me, being at a public school before; it was kind of just walking in every day and having teachers that really care for us; they pray for us and want to know about every detail of our lives.”
What has God been teaching you lately?
“Something God has been teaching me lately is being confident in who He created us to be – whether that just means being yourself around people or not being afraid of what they think.”
Do you have any advice for younger students?
“Show who you are, who God created you to be. Don’t hold back. Also, get to know other people. We’re only here for a little bit. I’ve only been here for four years, and I’m really thankful for the relationships I’ve been able to make and grow in friendship.”
Any closing thoughts?
“I’m very thankful for the way Mount Calvary has prepared me for my future.”
