Congratulations, Hollis Speck!
Wow! We couldn't be more proud of our very own middle school student Hollis Speck for being a runner up in the Herzog Foundation's National Bill of Rights Essay contest.
Nationally, all middle school and high school students currently enrolled in a Christian school or homeschool were eligible to participate in the essay contest. Each winner and their school received a $250 award from the Herzog Foundation. Additionally, each runner up and their school received a $100 award. Essay contestants were asked to answer the following prompt in three pages or less: What made the Bill of Rights so revolutionary and unique when it was ratified? How has the Bill of Rights shaped our country?
“We can be grateful for the sacrifice of many Americans for the freedom we have now. Even in our ups and downs, the Bill of Rights gave everyone a chance and no matter what society brings upon us, we can always rely on knowing we’re free. The Bill of Rights is not only a set of rules but a way to be free,” said Middle School Runner Up Hollis Speck.
She nailed it! Congratulations, Hollis.

On cold and windy day in November, Our Savior Christian Academy stopped by Grace Community Church Preschool (GCCP) in Smithville to say thanks with a lunch from Panera Bread. "We wanted to support and say thanks to GCCP in the work they are doing to build His kingdom," stated OSCA Marketing Specialist Julie Kurtz. "We are honored to support their efforts."
Thank you OSCA parents and caregivers for all the wonderful cards, gifts, and treats you provided to the OSCA staff for Christmas. You left us feeling so cared for and loved. Thank you so very much!
