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. If you are a pre-K through 11th grade family, 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 2021 seniors to give you an opportunity to meet them before you join us for the celebration May 15. This week’s featured senior is Jillian Nordin.

Favorite moment at CDA: It’s hard to pick one because my favorite thing has been getting to know my friends as basically family, but one good memory was that time I made a pen slingshot. I tried loading it, but a rubber band slipped and the pen exploded all over my face. My classmates’ faces were priceless. We all laughed, and I decided to give up pen weaponry indefinitely.

How has CDA prepared you to be an ethical servant leader and wise thinker in order to shape culture for the glory of God? I am most grateful for CDA’s 12 grade theology class. The years leading up to now were helpful, but this year has finally answered all my pressing questions. The school’s structure around God has been influential to how I shape my own life, and the amazing godly people within it have shown me how to find good friends and be a better person. It has been so good to grow up in a Godly and loving environment, and hopefully I can pay that love forward to everyone I meet.
