Insight from Our Leadership 10.16.14

The Song of Your Life

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Music was present from the beginning. You might be wondering how. Well, let me tell you. Each star in the heavens puts off its own unique pulsar that includes sound waves. The very heavens have been declaring the glory of the Lord our God from the beginning, and people can glorify Him too. God’s Word tells us that He inhabits the praise of His people. One way we can communicate with God is through songs, hymns, and psalms.

Here or There, God is Working

On September 26, over 140 alumni and their families returned to Ben Lippen’s Hathaway-Weeber Stadium to reconnect with friends and faculty from years past. Dennis Cochrane, member of the class of 1954, opened the gametime ceremony with a word of prayer and joined classmate Merle Dye in celebrating their 60-year reunion. Sixty years is certainly something to celebrate!

The most notable turnout was from the class of 1994, with 50 alumni and family members making their 20-year reunion a weekend-long event, and even Skyping with a fellow classmate who was unable to attend. From the perfect football weather to a festive alumni tailgate and creative halftime floats, the evening ended with a nail-biting Falcon comeback leading to a one-point victory over Porter-Gaud! It was certainly an evening to remember. Click here to see photos from Homecoming 2014.

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.
