The Senior Story of Leila Sconyers, Class of 2019
As I reflect back on my thirteen years at New Covenant I cannot help but see them as a work of God’s faithfulness in my life. I have had the privilege of being a student at New Covenant since I was in kindergarten and it is here that I learned to love the Lord. Academically, I have been pushed to live up to my true potential. Without the rigor that New Covenant provides I would not be the student that I am today. Spiritually, I am blessed beyond belief. I was given the gift of a curriculum that was enriched with truth which greatly contributed to my spiritual upbringing. I have been encouraged throughout all of my classes to grow in my faith and to learn more about God and His excellence – an experience I know few others have. I have teachers that care about my success and encourage me in all areas of life. My classmates have turned into family members rather than just friends.
This fall I will be attending Clemson University, majoring in Language and International Health. My long-term goal is to attend medical school and become a radiologist.
I feel that New Covenant has prepared me for the challenges that I will face in college as well as later in life. I recognize that I have been blessed with a school full of like-minded individuals and that after high school that may change. Through the classical model I have been taught to discern between truth and untruth as well as how to defend my faith. I am filled with gratitude whenever I think of the wonderful blessing New Covenant School has been to me.
