Alli Swyt

Since I have such a strong foundation through being educated in a place where we’re always looking at things from the Christian perspective, I won’t be so easily shaken in my faith and beliefs. Because of that, I will be able to seek to serve others and glorify God through whatever job I end up doing.

Wake Forest University

Q&A with Alli

What grades did you attend WCCS?

8th-12th grade.

What is your intended field of study at Wake Forest?

Psychology and physics.

Please describe one of your life goals.

One of my life goals would be to simply find a job in which I can do well and serve others.

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

I was able to learn from a Christian perspective, and I think that will help me a lot in college with continuing to look at everything from this perspective. 

What are you most thankful for when you consider your time at WCCS?

I’m most thankful for the close friendships I’ve built here. And probably also the senior trip to Montana!

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?

I’m interested in either becoming a psychologist or an engineer or something along those lines. I think my time at WCCS here has prepared me for going into the world where of course not many people are going to have the same beliefs as me. But, since I have such a strong foundation through being educated in a place where we’re always looking at things from the Christian perspective, I won’t be so easily shaken in my faith and beliefs. Because of that, I will be able to seek to serve others and glorify God through whatever job I end up doing.

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

When I was in 9th and 10th grade, back when we used to come into the lunchroom, and we could buy breakfast, I would always come in and get food and sit and talk with Mrs. Callicott.  My friend, Katya, and sometimes other people would be in there and that was always fun.  Mrs. Callicott would always say “Happy Friday Eve” on Thursdays.

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. Falde. I would say thank you for all his great stories, which really taught me a lot. To a teacher who is currently here, I would definitely say Mr. Cooke. He would occasionally do Bible lessons, and I loved those, and also sometimes he’d just talk with us about lots of different things in life, and I always learned a lot from that which has impacted me.
