Ephrata Mennonite School
Shauna Stoltzfus, the daughter of Calvin and Geneva Stoltzfus, joined Ephrata Mennonite School in 8th grade. She is now a sophomore. Shauna’s favorite thing about school is volleyball, as she helps the Legends volleyball team. She is very passionate about sports and enjoys them. Shauna’s classes that she participates in are Geometry, English/Language Arts, Theater Arts, History, and PE (Physical Education). Out of the 5 classes she participates in her favorite is geometry. Outside of school she enjoys playing volleyball or hanging out with friends.
Shauna’s plans after high school is to follow God’s will for her life. She wants to either devote herself to mission work of God’s choosing, or go to college for cosmetology and start a business in that line of work. Although at the moment, she works at the village cafe in Intercourse, PA.
She really enjoys working there and loves to be with her co-workers.
Shauna attends church at New Covenant Mennonite Fellowship. She really enjoys the friendships she has made there and the Youth Group that the church has. With these things, she is proud of the person she has become spiritually in the past year, rooting herself with Christian beliefs and surrounding herself with great friends, which she is blessed to have. Shauna will be traveling to Jamaica next year with her youth group, and another time with her family. Which are both supporting JRM, or Jamaica Relief Ministries. Her sister is helping in Jamaica, which is a blessing. Shauna hopes that God’s will will be fulfilled in her life, and trusts in him with everything. Shauna is a great friend to everyone and has a passion to be kind and helpful to others.
