This year is the 36th annual FC graduation which will take place tomorrow, May 25. The event will take place in the People's Church main auditorium and will start at 7 pm.
Time has been going fast since I came to Fresno Christian. My two-year stay in this school flies arrow - every day I still have a feeling that I just get there, but now it’s almost over. But luckily, I can tell myself, without any regret, that I made the most of it during my time here.
I came to Fresno Christian as a Freshman. After going to public school up until that point FCS was kind of a culture shock. It was weird knowing the name of every single person in your class and seeing them all almost every day.
For the last 12 years, I have been blessed to call Fresno Christian my home. As graduation nears and the realization that the senior class will be split up sinks in, I am left with mixed emotions throughout my final days at FC. While part of me is eager to step forth into the real world and leave my high school days behind me, the other half remains apprehensive of what lies ahead.
My four years on The Feather Online have come to end after winning four CSPA Gold Crowns, two NSPA Pacemakers and a Letter of Recognition from the Mayor. After making the decision to join journalism in the middle of freshman year it quickly filled up my schedule with so many great opportunities.
As a student who has been a lifer at Fresno Christian, one who has been at the school from kindergarten to 12th grade, I have fallen in love with the school and the culture here. Although small and sheltered, I feel that FC has been a great environment to grow in most aspects and especially faith. I have been readied and well equipped by my time and experiences here and await the next chapter of my life.
The time that I never thought would actually come has finally arrived. The past six years of my education have all been leading up to this. Graduation and the next step in my life snuck up on me faster than I could have ever imagined. As I reflect on the time spent at Fresno Christian, I am extremely grateful for all of the memories and people that I have met along the way.
Multi-schooler, Michael Cliff, ‘17, fired a career-best of 65 at Lemoore Golf Course Wednesday, May 3, to capture his fourth consecutive individual championship. Cliff's total for the 36-hole championship was 134, allowing him to better runner-up Arjun Gill of Fowler by 48 shots. The championship for Cliff comes just three weeks after he won the Len Ross Fresno City Junior Amateur Golf, contested over four rounds during spring break. He won that tournament by seven shots over some of the area best junior golfers, including Hanford's Lane Pulliam, who will join Cliff as a freshmen on the Fresno State men's golf team for the 2017-18 season.
My older sisters, who had been in The Feather for at least two years, said that it taught them many life skills and most of all how to be a good writer. These things did seem important to me but I was not sure if I wanted to give the same commitment they gave to the program, seeing as though I just saw it as another class. At this point in my adolescent years, my skills of communication, as well as confidence, were not too high, so when I heard that for The Feather I would be interviewing people, I was nervous. I can remember my first interview like it was yesterday. Our advisor Greg Stobbe, told me that my first article would be about the use of technology in the classroom at FC and that I would need to interview Superintendent Jeremy Brown.
