Senior Story – Chase Harmon, Class of 2017

01cdc6af1eeeb2e62c099568b32d262276d8bda556I have attended New Covenant since my Kindergarten year, except for my 7th grade year where, under financial issues, I was not able to have the blessing of a New Covenant education. I’ve seen four different headmasters, many different teachers come and go, but one constant goal despite all their differences: To present every student complete in Christ.

Whether Mr. Canney’s or Mr. Aubry’s Omnibus class, teaching us not only Literature and History, but how we can learn Biblical lessons from them, or Rev. Simon’s physics class, learning about the world our Lord has made and how we function in it, or Systematic Theology with Mr. Wilkes, learning all the names and attributes of our Lord, or Mrs. Harmon’s class, about the founding and system of Government our country runs on, or any math class with Mrs. Graves or Mrs. Collins or even Dr. Harmon, no matter where I am or what I’m doing, I’m surrounded by teachers and students who all love Christ and strive to honor him in everything.

From New Covenant, I plan to attend Clemson University with a major in Engineering, though I’m undecided what form presently, and potential minors in Theater and Education. I know that my training in the Lord will not fail me as I advance from here to college, and into the business world.

Before I go, I have one bit of advice for the student reading this, thinking “so what?” Invest your time in this school, in these people. You’ll make so many new friends; have so many stories to tell whoever will listen. So if you’re thinking about joining that club, or playing that sport, or assisting with the drama production, then do it! 2 Corinthians 9:6 says, “The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” I can’t wait to see how this school grows, both now and into the future!
