Congratulations to high school student, Geiger Sturkie, as the recipient of the Adam Ross scholarship for the 2017-18 school year. This $2500 scholarship goes towards Geiger’s CCS tuition. This is the second year the scholarship has been awarded.
The late Adam Ross was a warrior for Christ who lost his physical battle with Addison’s disease in 2016. During his battle, he faithfully honored Christ by exhibiting character that typified the Christian life. In his honor, Adam’s parents have established a partial tuition scholarship for a middle or high school student at Calvary Christian School. This $2,500 scholarship will be sent directly to Calvary Christian School. Each year this scholarship is announced and awarded at the CCS Awards ceremony.
The character traits that serve as criteria for the Adam Ross scholarship are as follows:
- Servant to others For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and give His life as a ransom for many. Mark 10:45
- Encourager/kindhearted Be ye kind one to another, forgiving one another as Christ Jesus has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32
- Be a light for Christ Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16
- Perseverance/able to rise above circumstances in the midst of suffering Consider it pure joy my brothers whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
