Holston Students Make Their Mark

Several HHS students have been busy contributing to the school and the community at large.  Four of those students are Mia A., Seth W., Jacob J. and Anna-Blake W.

Mia volunteered for a three week mission trip to Tanzania last summer.  While she was there, she worked with children, distributed health kits, and gave out Bibles to those who were interested in receiving them.  Mia’s actions had a great impact, as Tanzania is one of the poorest nations on earth.

Seth has been accepted as an apprentice to a senior pastor at his church for the purpose of eventually receiving ordination as a minister.  Seth will attend Graham Bible College in Bristol upon graduation and will enroll in seminary classes after that.  He is doing outreach work with the organization called Cowboys for Christ.

Anna-Blake has a long-running interest in ballet.  She was cast as Clara in Theater Bristol’s play “The Nutcracker”.  Taking part in the play demanded lots of dedication, as rehearsals began in September for the eventual performances in December.  She has been involved in other productions, including “A Christmas Carol” and “Sleeping Beauty”.  She will also have a role in “Aladdin”, which premieres in May.

Jacob has applied himself as a scholar and has been selected to the Crooked Road All-Conference Scholastic Bowl Team.  The Scholastic Bowl is a competition wherein students from participating schools answer general knowledge questions about a myriad of subjects.  In order to qualify for the conference team, students had to be in the top six with regard to the number of questions they correctly answered.  Jacob made the cut and amazes people with his ability to recall answers to a broad spectrum of questions.

Holston’s faculty, staff, and students salute these students and their accomplishments.
