Hadassah Romine, Caleb Wilch, & Laura Caplinger
Membean, an individualized, interactive vocabulary program, hosts annual national competitions. Last month they had a “Pseudoword” competition where students were challenged to use prefixes, roots, and suffixes to create their own “pseudoword” or fake word. They had to define their pseudoword and use it in a sentence as well.
Three of our freshmen, Hadassah Romine, Caleb Wilch, and Laura Caplinger, worked together to create “precentiphobia.” Their word means the fear of numbers less than one hundred. Not only did they place in the top 10, but they won 2nd place out of all the 9th-12th grade submissions, winning a $200 Amazon gift card! Congratulations!
Each spring, 10,000 high school sophomores from across the country join one of HOBY’s 70 State Leadership Seminars to hone their leadership talents and apply them to become effective, ethical leaders in their homes, schools, workplaces, and communities. Their leadership programs are designed to prepare students to turn their ideas and goals into reality. Each program adheres to the five core HOBY values: Volunteerism, Integrity, Excellence, Diversity, and Community Partnership.
Congratulations to Abigail Mathews, for this year’s HOBY nomination from Cincinnati Christian Schools. Abigail wrote an outstanding essay on the importance of leadership. Thank you for reflecting Jesus in all you do!
CCS has had the opportunity to partner with the football program Landmark Schools for several years. This year, one of our own students received their Andrew Knight Award for Godly leadership. Congratulations to Caleb Vetter! “Caleb has been playing football for Landmark for 6 years, beginning his journey as a QB his eighth-grade year. Caleb has always been one to put the needs of the team ahead of his own. Selfless is the word that truly defines Caleb, and it shows in his leadership abilities, especially with his younger teammates.” -Coach Goodpaster
