Senior Story – Alex Gebing, Class of 2019

Alex Gebing.jpgI have attended New Covenant School since the 7th grade.  I have enjoyed my years at New Covenant and I have made many great memories and friends.  One of my favorite memories from school is being a part of the cross country team. I ran in both my junior and senior years.  It was challenging and there were times when I didn’t want to run, but practicing three or four times a week helped improve my run times.  I really enjoyed competing at all the meets.

After high school I plan to attend the University of North Georgia or The Citadel and major in Intelligence and Security Studies.  My time at New Covenant has helped to prepare me for college. It has challenged me academically as well as taught me time management.  I have enjoyed my high school years and am looking forward to starting the next phase of life.

Senior Story – Allison Dutterer, Class of 2019

Allison DuttererI have attended New Covenant School since the third grade. It has benefited me in many different ways. I am particularly thankful for the Omnibus curriculum. Through Mr. Wilkes and Mr. Canney, I have been taught how to articulate my thoughts clearly as well as write proficiently. The Omnibus teachers have done an excellent job of preparing me for college by not just spoon feeding me answers but allowing me to really think through difficult questions. NCS has been like my extended family throughout the years.

We have a very tightly knit community that I hope will continue to last in New Covenant School. Another thing I love about this school is the service work students have the opportunity to participate in. New Covenant has had a missions class in the past and we went and served at various places like Brookdale (Anderson Place), AIM, and The LOT Project. These are just a few examples of how New Covenant is involved in giving back to the community. I also have appreciated how flexible this school has been. My freshman year I took Spanish one, but that summer I went to France and gained the desire to learn the language. New Covenant has allowed me to take online French classes in place of Spanish. I have loved all of my ten years at NCS. I have signed a letter of intent to go to a Erskine College and play volleyball. I feel fully equipped with the teachings I have received at New Covenant.
