Cassie is involved in the National Honor Society, yearbook, the worship team, and faithfully helps with the spring musical every year. After she graduates in the spring, Cassie will attend Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and looks forward to what else the future holds for her.

Ethan Gerard is a senior at Lititz Christian School and has been attending the school for 14 years. Ethan is the type of student and friend who genuinely cares about his work and those around him.
Ethan’s friends describe him as a “cool guy,” “a good influence,” and “a genuinely great person.”
He has played soccer at LCS for 8 years. This year, Ethan is a captain of the Varsity soccer team and his positive attitude and sportsmanship shine on the field.
In the classroom, Ethan enjoys history and says he finds it, “very interesting, plus it is important to understand past mistakes in order to prevent them from happening again.” Outside of school, Ethan enjoys backpacking, doing ridiculous stuff with his friends, and loves making things with his hands.
He regularly attends Harvest Bible Church with his family and is involved with the youth group. This past summer, Ethan had the opportunity to join a missions team from Arms of Hope, located in Mt. Joy, in going to Ghana. During the 2 weeks, the team ran a summer camp for children from a slum. Ethan helped to ref soccer games and lead small groups. The trip helped Ethan realize that God’s plan is so much bigger than the little bubble that he lives in, and it taught him to be more thankful for the things God has blessed him with.
After high school, Ethan plans to take a gap year before joining the military and possibly becoming a paramedic or EMT. I have no doubt that Ethan will continue to influence those around him for the goodness of God no matter where he goes.
