14: I prefer that the beginning of my formal college endeavor does not immediately follow my graduation from high school. After graduating in May, with forty-plus dual-enrollment college credits, I hope to attend Summit Semester during the fall semester. Summit Semester is a three-month long inter-disciplinary worldviews intensive. I eagerly look forward to Summit Semester’s positive influence in my life. After attending Summit Semester, I hope to eventually attend the Summit Oxford program in the United Kingdom. I plan to challenge myself and pursue a learning experience at one of the most prestigious universities in the world, under the leadership and direction of Summit Ministries. Upon the completion of the program, I plan to pursue a degree in Mathematics/PreMedicine with the eventual goal of attending medical school. I see myself serving God within the medical field, as I have always loved and been interested in medicine. However, I remain faithful that God will ultimately lead me to the career that He desires for me, and where I can best serve Him. | Samuel Prahlow | I liked Homeschooling because it allowed me to work at my own pace. It has also prepared me for my college pursuits.. | Class of

15: "I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust." Psalm 91:2 "And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:" Ruth 1:16 | I am following God's will for my life in my home and my church. I hope to begin volunteering at a Therapeutic Horse Center this summer while working part time. I will be taking college classes on- line to be a veterinary assistant which should help me find a job with animals. I hope to work with animals either through a therapy center or a shelter nearby. With this I plan to take classes for my hobbies: writing and drawing. Doing this would make each talent better than they are and help me use them for God. Friends and family will always be a major part of my life, as they always have been. I have yet to know where God may lead me but I have learned that God always knows what's best for me. | Class of | Nikki Schreiner

16: I used to think “when I grow up...” and fill in the blank, but now the “when” is nearly upon me and I am starting to realize and fulfill my dreams one at a time! Ever since the start of school I enjoyed being homeschooled and have made many friends. I continue to work at Tiny Tot Reruns, Meijer, volunteer at Kryders Veterinary Clinic, and spend most of my time in the barn with my many 4-H animals. Fair is a big part of my summer and I look forward to working with and showing my Dairy Feeder Steer, Beef Steer, Lamb and Market Goat at the Cass County Fair again this year. I have been accepted into the Vet Tech program at the International Business College in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I will be moving there to start school the fourth of September. I am very excited to start school and to see where God leads me. | Class of | 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 "Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love." | Matthew 6:33 "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." | Samantha Tharp

Nichole has participated in Awana from Cubbies (three years old) through her senior year. Through these years she has earned the Sparky Award, Excellence Award, Timothy Award, Meritorious Award, Trek Milestone Award, and finally the highest achievement afforded by Awana, Citation Award. This has been accomplished by twelve years of Bible study, missions service work, and memorization of over six hundred and fifty verses. In grade school she took piano lessons from Grandma VanderWerf. She plays flute and piccolo in the NACHS' homeschool band, and has taught herself to play guitar. | Besides her love of music she also loves sports. She played volleyball her eighth grade year, softball from elementary to eleventh grade, and basketball in junior and senior high school. She enjoyed 4H for many years. She showed rabbits and draft horses. In the fine arts category she sewed, did leather projects, cake decorating, and stained glass. In the fall she plans to take firefighter one and two courses. She has wanted to follow in her dad's footsteps for as long as she can remember as a volunteer firefighter. She is looking forward to continuing to serve the Lord and seeing where He leads. | Nichole VanderWerf | Class of

The field of potential Republican candidates was wide and varied. Many have withdrawn, leaving Mitt Romney as the presumptive Republican candidate. | On January 18, 2012, online encyclopedia Wikipedia began a 24-hour "blackout" in a dramatic response to proposed legislation that many top websites are claiming it will reshape the web. Where were you the day Wikipedia went dark? | The Space X Falcon 9 Test Rocket lifted off from Space Launch Complex 40 on May 22, 2012.

20: Tim Tebow is a quarterback for the Denver Broncos. Being home-schooled by his missionary parents who witnessed in the Philippines, he makes a public stand for Jesus Christ. Whether he wins or loses, he kneels down after a game to pray. He gives all the glory to Jesus, and is never afraid to be a witness for God. | Our Fellow Christians | "And to him (a Pharisee) they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ." Acts 5:40-42 | Anna Watson is a cheerleader for the Georgia Bulldogs Football Team. She has been accused of using steroids, but she claims her body is a temple for God. | Colton Dixon was eliminated from American Idol. The night of his elimination, he sang the Christian song "Everything" to give glory and honor to Christ | Kirk Cameron is a Christian Evangelist who has been accused of Anti-Gay Extremist. He's also trying to find answers to why our country has fallen. In his movie "Monumental" he states, "I went on a journey to retrace the footsteps of our forefathers to see if they left us some kind of a map that might guide us back to the foundation of America's success."
