CDA-CC HS Senior Class of 2020:
Save the Date: Saturday, May 16th, at 4:00 p.m. at Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, TX.
Have you ever wondered– What is the purpose of all of the hours of memorization, tests, and assignments that you have to work through as CDA families? Our mission is to raise up ethical servant leaders and wise thinkers who will shape culture for the glory of God. The CDA-Collin County Commencement is an opportunity to see all this come together as you watch our students prepare for the next season of life. Whether you are a pre-K or 11th grade family (or anywhere in between), please plan on joining us for this day and prepare to be encouraged! Over the next several months, we will be featuring our class of 2020 seniors to give you an opportunity to meet them before you join us for the celebration May 16. This week’s featured senior is Lindsey Whittle.

Favorite moment at CDA: It’s hard to pick one moment at Coram Deo to be my favorite because I have too many, but the most prominent memory right now is building the garden with Dr. Arion in AP Environmental Science. I can’t help but smile when I think about the numerous class field trips we took with Dr. Arion and Mr. Hines to Home Depot. We were hauling 50 bags of potting soil around, picking out plants with cool names, arranging them, and decorating the garden with aesthetic signs that we painted. These memories are my favorite because I got to spend my time doing something I love, with the people I love. That’s what high school is all about.

How has CDA prepared you to be an ethical servant leader and wise thinker in order to shape culture for the glory of God? Going to Coram Deo has taught me that Jesus is the most important thing in my life- not my grades or my success or my friends. The teachers and mentors I’ve had at CDA have shown me that success is measured by personal growth and glorifying God in all you do, not by the red numbers at the top of your assignment. My friends have taught me that true friendship is founded upon the love and grace of God that He gave us by sending His Son to die a death that we deserve upon a cross and raising Him to life again, forgiving us of our sins. Having learned this, I am prepared to face the rest of life ahead of me, knowing I have a friend in Jesus and my merit is based on Him and Him alone.
