Drew has played football, baseball, basketball and competed in power lifting. He loves the closeness with teachers and classmates. “I am spiritually prepared because, at RCA, a student’s spiritual growth is a priority and teachers take time to connect with their students,” says Drew. “As an athlete, my coaches become like fathers and my teammates like brothers.” Drew will attend Mississippi College to pursue a degree and play football.  After earning his degree, he plans to pursue a career in the military.

During my time at RCA people invested in me. Teachers invested in my knowledge in a way that prepared me for success in college. Coaches and Staff invested in my character, preparing me for life. Above that, everyone invested in my faith, showing me that the most important thing in life is my relationship with Jesus Christ. I am currenty serving as the college minister for Redemption Church, a North American Mission Board church plant. I graduated April 27, 2018 with a bachelors degree from Weber State University in communication with a focus in interpersonal and family communication.

Being at Russell not only prepared me academically, but also prepared me spiritually, and that is something for which I am so thankful. The teachers, coaches, and students were my family and left a huge impact on my life. I feel that God placed it on my heart to become a teacher, although I struggled with the decision for a while. He has given me peace and opened doors as I have been in college. As an educator, I hope to be a light in this dark world for the Glory of God to impact students’ lives just as mine was impacted by my family at RCA.

I'm so thankful for my time at Russell. I was continuously encouraged and given truths from God's Word. The teachers at Russell greatly influenced my decision to become a teacher myself. I strive each day to show my students the same love and compassion that they showed to me. Their Godly character was not only shown in the classroom, but by the way they lived their lives daily. I consider it a great honor to have had the opportunity to be a Warrior and part of the Russell family.
