Rockwell Christian students compete at Junior Convention

Rockwell Christian School students competed recently at the Carolinas Junior Convention held at Ridgecrest Convention Center near Asheville.
Middle school students from the Carolinas and Georgia gathered for two days of competition in academics, art, athletics, music and platform events. Student conventions take place across America and worldwide to aid the students in developing their talents.
As the students prepared for the convention, they were encouraged to live out the scripture “to do all to the glory of God.” With that goal, they earned the overall academic award which was presented to the school that earned the most first-, second- and third-place awards in academic categories. In addition to the school trophy, the students earned the following individual awards:
Devon Ballard — First place in sketching, short story writing, 3 on 3 basketball, and 200-yard dash; second place in 50-yard dash and 100- yard dash.
Michael Hoehman — First place in sketching, 3 on 3 basketball, chess, spelling, and Bible memory; second place in soccer kick and physical fitness; third place, colored pencils.
Alex Miller — First place in 3 on 3 basketball; second place in poetry writing, spelling and chess; third place, 300-yard dash; fifth place, soccer kick; sixth place, table tennis.
Nathan Vanderford — First place in piano solo, 3 on 3 basketball, color photography-plants, and colored pencils; second place, color photography-character trait; fourth place, chess and unlimited free style archery; fifth place, color photography-animals.
The students also participated in evening rallies and preaching services and opportunities to relax playing miniature golf, riding the zipline, scaling the climbing wall, and participating in team activities aimed at developing new friendships.
