WCCS Class of 2020
Tanya Henderson
What grades did you attend WCCS?

I attended WCCS from 6th – 12th grade.

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?

My time at WCCS has taught me that God has a unique purpose for my life, and that I do not need to worry about the future because I know that I have Him and a group of people who I can lean on. My future plans beyond college are to be an Elementary Education Teacher.

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

Learning in a Christian Environment has taught me that everyone learns differently, and we may look different, but our main goal should be focusing on Christ and serving Him in every possible way.

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

My favorite memory from my time at WCCS was the junior Washington, DC trip. On that trip, we got to experience a lot of history, and on our second day of the trip we all got snowed in at the hotel. My class was not going to let snow stop us from enjoying the trip! We all went outside and played in the snow and made snow angels, and when we came inside we had an opportunity to try some authentic Ethiopian food. This trip made our class closer to each other, and we grew as a class.

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?

Mr. Kruger you haven’t been “just” a teacher. You have taught me so many good things. Thank you for all of your hard and endless work. Thank you for always sharing the Gospel with me. Thank you for making my senior year full of memories and laughter. I will miss you dearly.

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

The theme would be family because everyone knows each other very well and everyone is willing to help you out in any possible way.
