I attended SCS from preschool through 12th grade. After graduating I attended Whitworth University in Spokane, WA to pursue a degree in Health Science. During my time at Whitworth I found myself surrounded by a strong faith-based community, much like the one I found at SCS.
My time at SCS shaped me in many ways, but there are several things I have taken away that stick out far more than the rest. While my time at SCS allowed me to understand the importance of community and building relationships with others, one of my biggest takeaways from SCS has been the idea of our work being our worship. This idea was essential in shaping my time at Whitworth. For me, I was able to find that the hours I spent studying in the library, the days I spent directing sports camps, and the many conversations I had about faith and life over countless cups of coffee were some form of worship. My time at SCS has allowed me to see that my work can glorify God, and has motivated me to glorify God in everything I say and do.
This past spring I graduated from Whitworth University with a Bachelor of Arts in Health Science and minors in Psychology and in Theology and Gender. This fall, I started as the Head Varsity Volleyball Coach at SCS. I could not be more excited to come back to SCS and embrace a new role in this community. As I coach I know that this work is a form of worship, and I pray that this idea is something I will be able to help impart on my team.
