Week of May 21-25, 2018
From the Head of School
It was an honor this past weekend to be a part of the Front Royal Christian School Class of 2018 Graduation. This year’s graduates were accepted to twenty different colleges and universities and earned more than $800,000 in scholarships. This success is a result of the graduates’ achievements, diligence, and hard work. Almost all of this year’s class graduated with LFCC dual-enrollment college credits. One student graduated FRCS with 22 college credits in addition to his high school diploma. This success is also evidence of the partnership, dedication, and commitment by the parents, faculty, staff, board of directors, and students.
I am grateful for the commitment and faithfulness of our faculty and staff to not just the education, but also the formation of each student at Front Royal Christian School. The community that exists at FRCS allowed each Class of 2018 graduate to become a better version of themselves so they are able to better use their God-given gifts and talents in the service of God and neighbor.
The commencement speaker for this year’s ceremony is a part of our Front Royal Christian School family. Literature and math instructor Detra Tutton spoke to the students about the journey they began at birth and likened it to a hero’s passage in classical literature. She charged the graduates to truly live by identifying each day what adventure God has called them to and to be a hero in the world in which they live. She explained that to be a true hero you must be loving, peaceful, faithful, and kind.
Ms. Tutton’s comments reminded me of how integral God’s word is to our daily lives. The students, faculty, staff and I are regularly reminded of Mark 12:30-31 to “love the Lord God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.” Most importantly is the second part of the verse that says “love your neighbor as yourself.” I look forward to watching the futures of the Class of 2018 graduates unfold, to watch them serve with their hearts, souls, and minds and to change the lives of others with Christ’s love.
Blessings, Mrs. Lorraine R. Hewitt
