Two high school seniors at Plano's Faith Lutheran High School have the unique opportunity to be a part of the school's record books. The students make up the school's third graduating class of seniors.
Faith Lutheran High School is a small Christian college prep school located in Plano, Texas. It is in its seventh year of operation. The school has a rigorous education program following a Classical Education model.
"Faith Lutheran High School is a special place. One of the main reasons is our students," said Faith Lutheran School high school teacher Timothy Merritt of Plano. "Our students are very hard workers. They do an average of four hours of homework a day. Despite this, they rarely complain, a fact which has been one of my biggest surprises and greatest delights. Not only do they not complain much, they are among the first to step forward
when asked to help and to do it cheerfully. This is indeed a rare characteristic in youth today."
Steven P. Krycho, Jr. of Plano and Rebecca Kathryn Kieser of Plano make up the school's third senior class. They graduated in an evening ceremony at the school on Friday, May 29.
"My prayer for you both is that the wisdom of God that has been given you will hold firm," said Faith Lutheran School headmaster Rev. Stephen W. Kieser of Plano during the graduation service. "Some of the greatest and brightest minds in civilization think that the Christian faith is foolish. What God calls wise, the world calls foolish. Cling to the word of God. Rejoice in all that God has given to you."
Class valedictorian Steven Krycho graduated under Faith Lutheran High School's distinguished achievement program and will attend Concordia University in Mequon, Wisconsin. He intends to major in theological languages and go to seminary after college.
Class salutatorian Rebecca Kieser graduated under Faith Lutheran High School's recommended program and will attend Collin College.
"It is my prayer that you will grow in your faith as a result of your time at Faith Lutheran High School," added Merritt when addressing the students during the graduation service. "Remember what you have learned here: the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom."
