The papers have been written. The presentations have been prepared and are currently being practiced. It's an exciting time for our senior class as they are gearing up for their Senior Seminar Presentations, the culmination of an entire year's worth of work.

Covering such topics as “The Body Image Dilemma”, “Is The Constitution Absolute?”, and “How to Pursue the Homeless as a Believer”, the Class of 2024 has worked since September with teachers Mrs. Kristi Ugland and Mrs. Marcia Siebert, as well as with the many senior mentors who volunteered their time to help each of the seniors fully understand, present, and defend their thesis.

"The Class of '24 has been a pleasure to work with and guide through the Senior Thesis Seminar Course and Presentation", says Mrs. Ugland. "The students have been actively engaged since day one and have worked with passion in their topics of choice. I'm excited for them to show the PCA Family what they've learned and how they've grown." 

Mrs. Siebert added, "This year's presentations are as diverse as our students. Many of them chose topics that they have strong personal connections with and I believe those personal connections with their topics will make for very impactful presentations."

PCA Student Selected For Honor Band Clinic!

PCA 9th Grader Lily Huffines recently made her mark at the Region 4 Honor Band clinic, showcasing her musical talent and dedication. Lily joined 107 other 9th and 10th grade students from the region for an intensive 11-hour clinic where they learned an entire concert in a short span of time. The culmination of their hard work was a concert held on a Saturday afternoon last month where Lily and her peers delivered a memorable performance.

Band Director Mike Doll says that Lily's achievement is a testament to her commitment to music, as she is only the 5th student from PCA to receive this prestigious honor. Through rigorous practice and a successful audition, Lily earned her well-deserved spot among the talented musicians at the clinic.

Reflecting on her experience, Lily expressed her gratitude. "Having the opportunity to participate in region band was a great honor. Getting to spend the day with new people and many different instruments was exciting!"

Congratulations to Lily Huffines on this remarkable accomplishment, and we look forward to seeing her continued success and growth in the world of music.
