Please join us in congratulating the 32 graduates of Timothy’s Class of 2019.
It’s hard to believe they are off to college this fall. Many of them have been with TCS from the very beginning of elementary school. They will now be attending some well-known colleges including Temple University, Boston College, Gordon College, Boston University, Liberty University, Rutgers University, Fashion Institute of Technology, the School for Visual Arts and Stony Brook University, to name a few. They are well prepared academically and spiritually for what they will encounter in college and they leave behind a very prominent mark on TCS.
This year’s Valedictorian, Danielle Dyer recalls something she said to her classmates during their 8th grade graduation.
“I told them I believed we could get some of our names up on the banners that hang in this gym during our four years of high school. I am so proud and extremely happy to be able to say we did that,” says Dyer. “We have a new thousand-point scorer, a new record set in track and after a long tough season in basketball, a GMC gold division championship.”
There is no denying the talent in the TCS Class of 2019, from sportsmanship to the debate club, to the many artistic accomplishments in visual arts, band and choir.
Academically the class did well as many will be exempt from several of their college courses because of the AP classes or dual-enrollment they took at TCS. Our graduates were awarded a total of $1,716,952 in college scholarships.
All will be armed with the spiritual foundation that they have developed at Timothy through Bible and world-view classes, chapel, mission trips, debate and athletic teams, class retreats, and their own walk with the Lord.
Reflecting on what he learned over the last 12 years at TCS, Salutatorian, Josh Matthew, provided some advice to his class during graduation.
“A lesson that God has taught me throughout high school is that everything works according to his plan, but it doesn’t mean we should just be sitting waiting for Him to do something. Proverbs 12:11 says “Those who work the land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense,” Matthews continued. “A lot of people think that the Christian life will be some fantasy where you just do nothing, and God sets up everything for you. While we have to
definitely trust the Lord a lot, I don’t think God wants us to just stand idly by. God wants us to “work the land” being diligent and doing everything as if we are working for Him not for men.”
We’re excited to see where God will lead these alumni to “work the land” in the future!
Congratulations to the Class of 2019!
