Class of 2021 Graduation

"Truth, beauty and goodness."

That was the theme of JH Classical Academy's first Graduation yesterday, June 4, in which we witnessed the culmination of nine years of dedication to classical education, and our mission to cultivate within our students the wisdom and virtue necessary to discover their God-given potential. These three seniors are the fruition of that mission.
Pete Cook will be attending Montana State University in Bozeman to study business and finance. An Eagle Scout, Pete has received scholarships from the Rotary Club of Jackson Hole, the Boy Scouts of America, and a $32,000 scholarship from Western Undergraduate Exchange! Ms. Kirby Feaver, math and science teacher at JHCA, described Pete as "a man of integrity" in her speech.
Samantha Fairbanks will be attending Utah State University to study interior design. A well-rounded student, Sammie has been active both in and out of school. She has competed in varsity tennis for four years and varsity competitive dance for three, and has also performed in local theater productions in Jackson. This summer she plans to travel to northern Africa to experience the culture in Morocco. In her speech about Sammie, Ms. Laura McMillion, history and language teacher at JHCA, said, "My prayer for you is that your joy in the good things of your life will be rooted in the goodness of God. May He guide your steps.”

Jacqueline Neishabouri will be majoring in economics at Wesleyan University, where she will also play Division 3 golf. Earlier this year, she was also awarded an $80,000 scholarship by Balyasny Asset Management for "exceptional merit and an interest in finance," which includes four years of highly-desirable finance internships. Jacqueline has been with JHCA since it began, as a 6th-grader! Mr. Ian Landis, director of admissions and math and science teacher at JHCA, spoke about Jacqueline's entrepreneurial spirit and encouraged her by saying, "Don’t be afraid to ask for help as you go after your goals. Lean on others to help you. Your JHCA family is here for you.”

We are so proud of our first senior class, the Class of 2021! As our founding headmaster Mr. Robby Kuhlman said in his commencement address, "You are the light of the world--like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden." It is our hope and prayer that you will be a light to those around you, as you enter this next exciting chapter of your lives!
