“Think with excellence. Believe with confidence. Live with character.” We said these words every morning prior to entering the building when I attended Heritage. Through repetition, these words were ingrained in my head. Through my teachers, these words were ingrained in my heart.
Heritage taught me to love learning, and it gave me a solid foundation in my faith. My teachers encouraged me to ask questions and to think critically and creatively. The passion for their subject matter made class exciting. This love of learning and desire to understand the “why” behind things has followed me to this day. Through this love of learning, I desired to learn more about the Lord and did so through the Bible classes offered and even an outside Apologetics class.
I have much to attribute to Heritage, and I am honored to be a part of the school’s mission.
