Senior Spotlights - Class of 2023

For seniors, the last year of school can be a whirlwind of activity - celebrations, programs, special events, the mission trip, and more. It’s also a culmination of 12 years of hard work and dedication that brings them to the end of a high school career.

We will be celebrating Shalom Seniors during the month of May by showcasing their future plans and sharing a reflection of their time at Shalom. Please note: Some students have chosen not to participate. 

Congratulations on your next life step! You have your entire life ahead of you to spend as you see fit. Our prayer is that each one of you would allow God to work in your life and show you how He wants you to live. We pray for your protection and insight as you navigate on your own. Matthew 7:7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you". Continue to honor God and your parents and you will be blessed. Best of wishes to all of you!

Brandon & Crystal Arthur

You all should be so proud of everything you have accomplished! The journey has not always been easy but you have persevered to the finish line and the end of this chapter of your life. As you open the next chapter, do not forget the support that you have, and the love of Jesus. It can be quite easy to move out and move on forgetting to make the creator of your life part of your life. This next chapter may not always be easy either but with God, you will find wisdom, peace, love, grace, and direction! We love you and are proud of you! Congratulations class of 2023!

Mrs. Friese  

 our class has been through a lot in your 12 years at Shalom. You lost a good friend in 6th grade that was one of the sweetest boys I will ever know! You are also one of the smallest classes to graduate from Shalom, and one of the smartest! You all have worked very hard to get where you are, and you should be very proud of yourselves! Keep on reaching for your goals and striving to live for Jesus and never compromise or lose sight of yourself or what is true! The Lord is with you always! 

Mrs. Sanders

Congratulations to the class of 2023! May God bless each and every one of you on the next part of your journey. This is an exciting time, so enjoy every moment.

Mrs. Staley

Congratulations! I've watched many of you grow from tentative kindergarten students to confident seniors. Now, it is your turn to walk across the stage to accept your diploma. You have earned this moment, and we are all proud of you.

One of my memories of your class is the beautiful fall day earlier this year that you gathered at Silas' grave to remember his gift of friendship to you. His life made an impact on many of you. Treasure those memories. Remember his love for God and know that God's kindness and love follow each of you as well. Blessings!

Mrs. Petersheim

Allie, I have loved getting to know you and grow closer to you this year. You are the most beautiful girl I know, both inside and out! I know that God will lead you to wonderful things in your life! You are a natural leader with a heart for helping people and I pray that God uses you to bless those around you. Remember that no matter where you are, you have so many people supporting you who love you dearly! I feel so blessed to call you my family and my friend! Love, Macayla

It has been a great pleasure getting to know this amazing class and I’m thankful for the opportunity to have many of you as students my first year at Shalom. You all embody the welcoming spirit of community and I have no doubt you will all carry the values of Shalom with you in all your endeavors. Blessings to you all!

Mrs. Leonard

Take God at His word!
