Our Newest Alumni

The Class of 2014
 

Please help us congratulate our newest alumni! On June 16, 2014, 18 Seniors proudly graduated from SCS. 

 

We pray for you as you move onward from here. We're excited for you and can't wait to see where the Lord will take you next! Keep in touch!

Joining the Ranks 

  

Graduation took place last week. The Commencement Speaker chosen by the Class of 2014 was Pastor John Aydelott.  He reminded us of what Russell Wilson's father had told him when he was young -  "Why not you?!" He addressed each graduating senior and asked "Why not you?!"  He encouraged them to dream big and go beyond for the glory of God. I can't wait to hear the stories the Class of 2014 will tell.

  

I've been hearing so many great stories from Alumni - Whether it's about the online fabric store started by Kris Jubie Vanden Bosch ('88) and Becca Jubie ('92) or  Emily Womelsduff's ('08) book being published or Aaron ('04) and Brandon ('06) Smith's band - we love to hear what you are doing for God's glory.

Featured Alumni:  Jessica Hoogerhyde

 

Jessica Hoogerhyde, class of 2013, and the recipient of the Dennis Roosendaal Scholarship in 2013, shared with us what the scholarship has meant to her. 

Last year I had the honor of receiving the Dennis Roosendaal Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to those who have shown a desire to serve others, and plan on pursuing a career in math or science. Receiving the scholarship was another step in providing some financial relief for me as I started college, but receiving it meant more to me than a dollar amount. 
 
Mr. Roosendaal exemplifies a servant heart, soul, and mind. In his years at SCS, he inspired others to do the same. He also showed a love of math and science that he instilled in many of his students. In my time at SCS, it was always a goal of mine to have a servant heart, soul, and mind.
 
When I was younger I preferred reading and writing to science and math, but during high school I grew to appreciate and enjoy math and science. The more I learned, the more I realized that through science and math, we can see the complexity, design, and beauty of God's creation.
 
I am currently a Health Sciences major at Whitworth University and hope to pursue a career in speech pathology. Receiving the scholarship gave me a stepping stone toward my future along with a sense of accomplishment and support from my alma mater. It was extremely humbling to know that my school family believed in me, and that they chose to help see me through this next step in my life. I plan to continue to work hard and make the SCS community proud of the person I am becoming. I hope to fully glorify God as I seek to humbly serve.

 

The Dennis Roosendaal Scholarship

Every year since 2004 a senior has been awarded the Dennis Roosendaal Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to  students who display a servant heart and who are interested in pursuing careers in math and science. 

 

This year the Dennis Roosendaal Scholarship was awarded to graduating senior Ashlyn Vander Wel. Ashlyn's involvement during her high school years at Shoreline Christian School include 3 years in Shiloh, 2 years in the National Honor Society, 2 years as a class officer, and she was elected student of the quarter for 3rd quarter this school year.  This summer Ashlyn will be teaching piano and volunteering at Swedish Hospital.  She will be attending Biola University in California this fall to pursue a nursing degree.

 

Memorial Garden Plaques
In celebration of our 60th anniversary, work began to create a space for stories - past and present - a memorial garden. It has been a work in process. The benches are in place, a new sprinkler system was installed, trees and shrubs have been planted. It's beautiful!

Now we need stories!  You can tell your story on a plaque that will be attached to the faces of the benches.  Learn more here.
