Lititz Christian School
Elijah Padulese is a 16-year-old student currently attending Lititz Christian School. He is in 11th grade and has been attending LCS for three years. His favorite class is Mathematics because he loves learning concepts he will probably use. He takes part in soccer and playing in games at the school, as well as playing the cello, guitar, and bass at school chapels and events. His favorite things about LCS are the great friends he has, the Christian environment, and the teachers because he loves seeing them “laugh at jokes and not take life too seriously.” In fact, one of his favorite teachers is his math teacher Dr. Wenger because he is “calm, cool, and calculated.” After he graduates, Eli is considering going to Penn State College to study Mechanical Engineering. Until then he feels his responsibility as an upperclassman is to set a good example for his fellow students. “If you wish to have a Christ centered education, and to grow in your faith with a community of believers that value you, then come to LCS!”

Jimin Yun is currently a junior at Lititz Christian School, planning to graduate with the class of 2020. She regularly attends the Worship Center on Sundays as well as participating in GSM youth group activities during the week. At school, she keeps busy as the varsity boys’ soccer and basketball manager and as a member of student council. She also leads the makeup designs for the school’s spring musicals. To Jimin, the best part of school is how welcoming the teachers are and being surrounded by her best friends. Her favorite class is Spanish because she loves learning how different languages and cultures work. When she isn’t engaged in school activities she can be found painting, practicing makeup, or spending time with friends. This month, Jimin will be inducted into the LCS chapter of the Nation Honor Society. After high school, she plans to attend college to study language and education. Jimin’s biggest role models in her life are her parents. She looks up to her mother as a “little strong woman,” and hopes to carry on her mother’s constant positivity and encouragement. Since Jimin came to the United States from Korea when she was in 6th grade and 12 years old, her biggest accomplishment has been how she learned to adapt to the English language after growing up speaking Korean. Jimin’s young exposure to English helped her develop her love for language. The one thing she would change about the world we see today, is recognizing racial equality and the power of words.
