"The ABC's of my high school journey"
Senior Brady Lee reflects on his high school experiences through a poem entitled the abc's of my high school journey.
In a few short days I will walk across a stage and receive a piece of paper that marks the end of my FC journey. I'm sad to leave. I remember coming to this school as a shy little third grader ten years ago. So much has happened over the years. I have laughed with students, I have cried with friends, I have sweated with teammates, I have prayed with teachers. And now, in a matter of days, my high school adventure will come to an end.
God is so gracious; he has blessed me more than I could ever imagine. Below are a handful of some of the greatest memories I made over the last four years. I hope you enjoy "The ABC's of my high school journey."
A is for adventure, these four years have been
B is for ballin' at Selland again
C is for Calvin crest, I led grade the eighth
D is for devotionals, weekly blogs about faith
E is for Eagles, we all fly together
F is for famous, our paper The Feather
G is for good times with my little bro
H is for hearts that Christ set aglow
I is for intentional teachers who care
J is for journalism, Mr. Stobbe's got flair
K is for king dance, we busted some moves
L is for laughter and the stress it removes
M is for magic, wanna pick a card?
N is for NOTS, the juniors went hard
O is for overtime, epic Senior Night win
P is for Powder Puff, let the games begin
Q is for Queen Pageant, like a punk I was dressed
R is for relationships, kindness I stressed
S is for Sadies, fond memories were made
T is for tennis, fun matches I played
U is for unselfish CSF servants
V is for valuing prayer and observance
W is for worship, weekly chapels were awesome
X is for excellence, FC continues to blossom
Y is for yes, I'm sad to be leaving
Z is for zero, no regrets and no grieving
Okay, to be honest there might be a little grieving. I'm really going to miss the people here at FC. So many friends, teachers, coaches and parents have made a significant impact on my life. There's an old saying that goes, "Whenever you see a turtle sitting on a fence post you know he didn't get there by himself, he had some help along the way." I want to thank all of the people who have blessed me and helped me become the person I am today.
In conclusion, my prayer for this school comes straight from scripture. May the community of believers at FC follow the words that the apostle Paul wrote many years ago:
"Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel," (Philippians 1:27 ESV)
Senior Brady Lee will attend Biola University in La Mirada, CA, in the fall to study Christian Ministries. He will be rooming with his older brother, Spencer, '10.
