This week’s featured senior is Joshua Hee.

Favorite moment at CDA: One of my favorite moments at CDA has to be playing “baseball” with friends during the break between AP Chemistry periods. After an exhausting exam, we’d go out to the field and use a dented metal pole as a bat, whatever spherical object we could find as a ball, and a patch of dead dirt as a plate. It was surprisingly fun. Luke Langan in particular had a devastating three-seam-knuckle that was unhittable—except for Mr. Hudler, who was without a doubt the best contact hitter. I’ll never forget this legendary sport.

How has CDA prepared you to be an ethical servant leader and wise thinker in order to shape culture for the glory of God? CDA has taught me many things—discipline, curiosity, perseverance—but most of all, perspective. Often times, as a student, I felt like I was endlessly jumping through hoops. I was trying to achieve grades, trying to meet deadlines, and I really didn’t know why beyond the vague idea of college. However, my teachers’ constant care for my character and spiritual walk helped me understand that there are things greater than the immediate situation I’m in as a high schooler. CDA has prepared me to visualize the broader plan God has for me in even stressful moments, and I’m grateful for this lesson as I grow as a servant leader in the future.
