WCCS Class of 2020
Parker Dhillon
What grades did you attend WCCS?

I attended WCCS from Kindergarten to 12th grade (minus 5th-7th grade when in I lived in China).

Our mission at WCCS is “Educating students to bless our world as disciples of Jesus Christ.” How do you believe your time here at WCCS prepared you for God’s unique purpose for your life? What are your future plans beyond college?

During my time at WCCS, the Lord has blessed me with some great teachers and friendships. It has also shown me the importance of discipleship and outreach. After WCCS, I would like to continue my work at a local homeless shelter/warming center/soup kitchen while in college and get more young people involved in community outreach. I plan to go to Medical School and become a surgeon in hopes to use those skills to help those less fortunate here and possibly abroad.

How has learning in a Christian environment positively affected your education?

Learning in a Christian environment has positively affected my education because it has given me a way to grow spiritually, look beyond myself, and emphasized the importance of outreach.

What is a special memory you have from your time at WCCS?

I will never forget getting stuck in a cheerleading uniform…

Has there been a teacher at WCCS that has impacted your faith, education, or personal growth in a significant way? If you were to say thank you to this person, what would you say?

One of the teachers that impacted my education the most is Mr. Cooke. He is a fantastic teacher and actually made physics bearable. He was a great weight training and wrestling coach as well and always made my school day a better one way or another. More importantly he takes interest in my personal and spiritual growth. He is always there to talk and listen to me and has helped me through some of life’s ups and downs.

If your time here at WCCS were a story, what would be the theme?
