    Computer-Based Honors Program - Sara Carmichael

    March 27, 2017

    The College Advising Office is proud to announce that Sara Carmichael is one of only 40 students nation-wide to be accepted into the University of Alabama’s Computer-Based Honors Program (CBHP). The CBHP gives outstanding students the opportunity to work one-on-one with professors while applying computing technology to a research project in their major field of study and was named one of the nation’s six most intriguing honors programs in the United States by the National Institute of Education. In order to be accepted into the prestigious program, Sara first applied to the University of Alabama’s Honors program and then completed an additional application and interview for the CBHP. Along with her acceptance into the program, Sara received significant scholarship money that will cover 85% of her college education over the next four years. Sara plans to major in computer science on a pre-med track. Congratulations to Sara and the entire Carmichael family!

    World History Job Fair

    March 27, 2017

    Mr. Russell's Honors World History class participated in a History job fair prior to spring break. Students chose a historical figure, researched that person, determined what skill set they possessed, created a resume, applied for a modern job (different than what they were famous for), assumed the identity of that person, and then interviewed with fellow classmates. The freshmen students had a great time learning about their person and role playing while learning some valuable life skills.

    Alumni Speaker on John Wesley Day

    On Friday, November 6, the Wesleyan community celebrated John Wesley Day. The purpose of this day was to express gratitude to both the founders of the school and those who sustain the school through their generosity: parents, alumni, friends of the school, and most importantly God.

    Mark Rockett is a Wesleyan alumnus and the current president of Wesleyan's Alumni Association Board. Mark was invited to speak at a special breakfast last Friday morning. His speech commemorated his experience with the Wesleyan community as a student and an alumnus. A transcript of Mark's speech in included below:

    Mark with past faculty.jpg

    "How many of you are current or former Wesleyan students? Look around… you owe much of your Wesleyan experience to the people standing in this room. Not just the faculty - who work tirelessly day after day - but our supporters who selflessly volunteer their time, talents, and resources… who give more than what’s required or expected to make Wesleyan such a special place. On behalf of all current and former students, thank you! We are grateful!

    Like Chris mentioned, I graduated in 2006. Now, almost decade removed, I’m still realizing new ways my time at Wesleyan impacted the man I am today.

    A lot of people think that a school like Wesleyan simply prepares you for college. While that’s true, that view is quite short sighted… Wesleyan doesn’t just prepare you for the next 4 years; it prepares you for the next 40 and beyond. Heading into our senior year, I vividly remember Franklin Pridgen challenging us with a simple statement. He said, “College should not define you, it should refine you.” He was right. While I had an incredible college experience and even met my wife there, it didn’t define who I was as a person. That was already done. It was here - at Wesleyan - that I defined not only who I was, but who’s I was.

    Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-A, used to constantly share with young people the importance of identifying the 3 M’s in your life - your Master, Mission, and Mate. At Wesleyan, I found the first two, and I’m convinced I wouldn’t have been prepared to find the third without the experiences I had here. For that, I’m eternally grateful.

    The words MIND, BODY, SPIRIT are draped across the bottom of Wesleyan’s crest. During my time, Wesleyan nurtured each of these three areas of my life.

    Mentally, my time at Wesleyan didn’t only teach me about world history, science, and math; it taught me how to think. It taught me how to tackle problems, manage my time, and make wise decisions. In fact, when I graduated and went to college I was much more equipped than 99% of my peers. These skills not only served me well at UGA, but they’ve been critical to my career as well.

    Spiritually, Wesleyan fosters an environment that keeps Christ as the focal point. Someone once told me that Andy Stanley shared the goal of the youth ministry was to anchor their students’ faith so deeply that when they left for college or the next opportunity and drifted (as most do to some degree) they would have such a firm foundation that they would always be pulled back to center. This philosophy rings true for Wesleyan as well.

    Wesleyan is such a special place because it continues to honor God’s mission for the school. We live in a culture that encourages conformity. Many private schools in the Atlanta area have abandoned their Christian roots; however, Wesleyan has remained committed to the Kingdom, and I believe God has honored that faithfulness. During my time at Wesleyan, I participated in our class Bible Study as well as four mission trips abroadb. In fact, those experiences at Wesleyan were a catalyst for me to join another mission trip last year to India through an affiliate of the WinShape Foundation. I can say with 100% certainty that I wouldn’t have participated on that trip in 2014 without the Wesleyan trips in 2004. Even today, the seeds sown at Wesleyan continue to yield fruit in my spiritual journey and strengthen my faith.

    Finally, when I think about the Body, I don’t just think about physical health. Instead, I think about the Body of Christ - a body of believers who genuinely care for one another and seek to honor the Lord. This body is what makes Wesleyan so incredibly unique. It’s a place where you are not anonymous and everyone is genuinely cared for! It consists of teachers, faculty, staff, parents, current students, and alumni. In one word, Wesleyan is community, and there’s no place like it.

    When I think about monumental life events, that community has been there for me every step of the way. When I got married, Wesleyan teachers were at my wedding. My best man was the person assigned as my “new student buddy” when I first came to Wesleyan in 5th grade, and I had 4 other Wesleyan classmates in my wedding party. Two months ago after our second daughter was born, three former Wesleyan teachers came to visit us in the hospital. When we learned that our new daughter Lucy was going to be born with Down syndrome, Heidi Lloyd proactively reached out to connect me with a current Wesleyan teacher who is just a step ahead of our family on that journey. That body of Christ and the deep sense of community make Wesleyan special… The community makes it personal; it makes Wesleyan “home."

    As I close today, I’d like to share a verse that has had a profound impact on my life. Luke 12:48 states, "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” Every one of us in this room is richly blessed, and each of you has answered the call. Your generosity makes a difference to students like me, so thank you for partnering with Wesleyan to continue to grow each student's mind, body, and spirit. The best is yet to come!"

    Caroline Reed Wins Havoc Competition

    Caroline Reed is a 2014 alumna of Wesleyan School. She is currently in her sophomore year at Furman University where she recently participated in the school’s Homecoming Havoc competition. What is Havoc? Essentially, it is a week-long challenge designed to emulate the competition on the popular CBS show, Survivor. During Havoc, students compete to raise money for a charity of their choice while participating in various contests and events. All contestants are still expected to attend class and abide by all the university’s policies throughout the week.

    cr3.jpg

    Reed was one of 12 students selected to participate in this year’s Havoc competition. Students are required to live in a tent; they are not allowed to shower or change clothes.

    This year’s Havoc theme was Olympics. Each student represented a different country, and Reed chose to represent Russia as Maria Sharapova. Reed’s decision to represent Russia is no surprise as she spent last summer interning at an orphanage in St. Petersburg.

    cr2.jpg

    Reed and the other participants partook in the difficult challenges; there was also a risk of being voted off by fellow competitors as the competition progressed. The winner is determined by who lasts the longest and raises the most money.

    Caroline Reed won the 2015 Homecoming Havoc competition and raised a significant amount of money to be donated to Restore International.

    cr1.jpg

    Her mom, Katie Reed, reflects, “Caroline won Havoc by staying stinky and staying committed to her cause. Her servant’s heart continues to amaze me. I am so happy for the countless lives she will help with the money she raised. I am so proud of her for staying true to who she is.”

    We are extremely proud to share stories about alumni, like Reed, who have been challenged in mind, body, and spirit to advance the Kingdom of God and address real needs in the local community and the world beyond.

    Salyers LEADing at UGA

    2012 Wesleyan alumnus, Nick Salyers, is making quite the impression on campus at the University of Georgia. On October 7th, Salyers was nominated as a candidate for the school’s 2015 Homecoming Court. Salyers’ candidacy was sponsored by Omicron Delta Kappa; Omicron Delta Kappa is the University of Georgia’s National Leadership Honor Society.

    Although Salyers did not win Homecoming King, his success and positive recognition continued throughout the month of October.

    Salyers was one of 25 students inducted into UGA’s Student-Athlete Leadership Academy during a ceremony on October 19th. The induction ceremony marked the 6th year of the Leadership Education and Development (L.E.A.D.) program with the inaugural class being inducted in 2010. Inductees are chosen based on academic and athletic success, leadership, campus and community service involvement, and recommendations of head coaches and academic counselors.

    nick.jpg

    Along with encouraging leadership development and providing resources to compete for awards and scholarships, the student-athletes will have a chance to meet with local, state, and industry leaders. Additionally, these student-athletes will be provided with resources to be competitive for conference and national awards and postgraduate scholarships. L.E.A.D. participants will also have the opportunity to compete for a highly coveted graduate assistantship position within the UGA Athletic Association.

    Wesleyan proudly acknowledges Salyers for his outstanding achievements, and we are confident that he will continue to lead his community and the Wesleyan community by honorable example.
