Suleman Amoon graduated from TCS in 2012. We were able to catch up with him during this past Alumni Career Day where he spoke to the students about his career. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Rutgers and Maters in International Relations from Liberty University. He is passionate about serving, and in college decided to take the public service path. He is currently a civil officer in the federal government and living in New Hampshire. He is very active in ministry and he and his family are involved in evangelism and interfaith events. He has a love for nature, and since moving to NH, enjoys hiking and doing outdoor activities.
Here is what Suleman had to say about his time as a student at TCS:
What do you love most about TCS?
The close-knit community that Timothy Christian offers makes it a very unique and attractive academic institution. Unlike other Christian/Private schools, in my opinion, Timothy offers an ideal environment and teacher to student ratio, where students are simultaneously challenged to grow personally, socially, and spiritually.
What is one word that best describes the school? Why?
“Mission-oriented” is what comes to my mind when I think about TCS. The level of commitment that the staff and teachers exude towards Timothy’s mission to teach sound and biblically grounded education is commendable. The administration is not solely interested in numbers and funding, which granted is a very important aspect of an institution. Their seriousness to invest in students’ lives has always taken precedence, and that was always displayed when my brother and I attended Timothy.
Describe one of your favorite memories of TCS.
Spirit week was definitely the highlight for me. I remember the excitement leading up to the week. The whole high school would feel united. That was one of the few times where you could get to know and get close with classmates that you usually didn’t hang out with, and find how skilled and talented certain people were, whether it was making the banner, cheer, T-shirts etc.
From your own experience, why do you believe it was important for you to attend TCS?
TCS provided me with a strong biblical foundation, which I think I would not have acquired had I been to a public or non-Christian high school. The experiences I had at TCS compelled me to become a serious and responsible Christian. As a human, I was not immune to the temptations and struggles of the world during college and beyond; however, the four years of Christ centered education and values helped me to guard my faith and follow Christ.
How are faith and learning integrated at TCS?
Faith and learning are simultaneously integrated at TCS. From humanities to sciences, all academic disciplines are taught through the biblical lens. Furthermore, TCS does an amazing job at providing the apologetic approach to faith, and how to defend your faith in a secular academic environment.
In what ways did TCS prepare you for college and beyond?
The urgency with which the TCS administration approaches good quality education and faith, has enabled TCS to foster an environment of healthy competition. My four years at TCS were a lot of fun, but at the same time, TCS challenged me to think seriously about my future and how I would serve the Lord in my life. From the long list of advanced courses and programs students can select, to the TCS teachers’ ability to challenge students with important questions about the future and personal faith further helped me prepare for challenges in college.
What would you tell a friend to encourage them to send their child to TCS?
If people are serious about good education and want their kids to learn in an environment where their child will be challenged mentally and spiritually, TCS is the school for you.
What has been the most challenging part of your career?
We live in a broken world, which means that life is always filled with challenges, issues, and problems. At times, making certain decisions can be challenging at work. However, knowing Jesus, and daily asking Him for guidance and wisdom makes the challenging parts of work doable and easy. I believe that God has placed me for a reason where I am right now in life and career, and daily, my effort is to use the talents that God has given me to declare and glorify His name for HIS glory.
What do you like best about your career?
I love the fact, that I get to serve my country through my job. I have always been passionate about serving, and Jesus impeccably showed that during his ministry, a Christian heart is a serving heart. I love the fact that every day at work I get to be part of a team that is directly impacting people’s lives in a positive way.
