Hi my name is Ben Hardy. I am a senior here at NCS and I hope to be accepted into Clemson University next fall. I’ve been at this school my whole life and during my time here I’ve seen firsthand the best qualities about this place. Elementary school introduced me to lifelong friends and taught me the world from a Christian perspective. Middle school taught me how to interact with my friends and put other people first. High school at New Covenant gave me the knowledge to discuss my faith with confidence and the ability to defend why I believe what I do. Teachers always led by example and helped us learn to be compatible with each other. Mr. Canney’s literature and history classes gave me insight that I’ll take with me forever. New Covenant School has prepared me for real life, and I know transitioning to college will be easier thanks to the teaching I’ve received here.
