Concordia’s Honors Academy welcomes new spring 2021 class

Feb. 10, 2021

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Concordia Lutheran High School is welcoming its spring class of Honors Academy students.

These new freshmen are: Mallory Bean, Bethany Bramwell, Lizzie Crook, Emma Jansing, Jaemin Kim, Grace Levitt, Anthony Minnich and Hayden Patterson.

These students join the 12 freshmen admitted this fall.

Begun in 2014, the Honors Academy promotes exceptional academics, leadership and community service among Concordia students by challenging and encouraging students to the next level of their academic success.

During their four years at Concordia, students are required to take Advanced Placement and dual credit courses; maintain a minimum 3.75 GPA; attend lectures and training for leadership awareness; engage in cultural growth and community networking; and complete community service hours each year, ranging from 15 hours as a freshman to 35 hours as a senior. As a senior, they complete a project of their choosing — one that exemplifies their passion and skillset. They also work with a mentor for this research project to lend expertise and guidance along the way. Projects have included a musical composition, a children’s book, a camp fundraiser and handmade cross, which now is used in the school’s chapel.

Upon graduation, these students will receive distinctive recognition and a special notation on their high school transcripts.
