Student Perspective 9.25.14

We're All God's Children

I first entered the halls of Ben Lippen my fifth grade year. I had done this whole “new girl” thing before, but the difference this time was that my family would be staying here for more than two or three years. This was the place that I needed to make my true friends.

I easily clicked with the other “new girl” from the start. A few weeks later, another girl joined us in our corner of the playground. The next year, a girl joined in to take the spot as my third best friend. These girls are still my best friends today.

Four Seniors Recognized for Scholastic Excellence

Officials from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 60th annual national Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for approximately 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth about $33 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and more than half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title. Ben Lippen is proud to announce that Jamie Fravel and Graham Harmon have advanced to be Semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship Competition.

Insight from Our Leadership 9.11.14

Standing for the Kingdom of God

Do you remember where you were? On 9/11/01, that is. Do you remember?

I’m sure you do. Who of us could forget the events of that day, or what we were doing, or where we were, when we became aware of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. News that, for a multitude of Americans, left us feeling gut-punched, resulting in a combination of nausea and numbness. We were sick at the thought of what had happened, watching it onscreen, but not believing it was real. As the reality sunk in and the details became known, shock grew into white hot anger, burning away the tares of complacency and leaving within us a patriotic resolve, resulting in needed action.

A Christ-Centered Education

The reason I am glad to go to Ben Lippen is because I get to learn more about Christ throughout everything I do, whether that's science, math, social studies, or any other subject. It also helps me grow more toward Jesus because the teachers involve Christ in everything they teach.
