Reflections From a Senior - Isabel Miller
Posted on 05/09/2018
Isabel MillerMy name is Isabel Miller, and I am a senior at Lake Center Christian School. Throughout high school, I have been involved in a wide variety of activities including varsity volleyball and softball, National Honor Society, and student council. My family has been a part of this school for generations, and I have attended Lake Center for thirteen years from kindergarten all the way to twelfth grade. 

My fondest memories of Lake Center can be summarized in one word-- 
opportunities. I can remember all the way back to early elementary school where we had competitions to collect canned goods for Lake Township Fish. In fourth grade, our teacher had us bring in school supplies and toys to put together shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, and later in the year we put together Resurrection eggs and shared them with children at the daycare center in the YWCA. In sixth grade, my class took a trip to Beulah Beach Camp on Lake Erie where we spent half a week competing in team competitions and growing closer to Christ. During my high school years, I was able to take a summer Marine Biology Trip led by our biology teacher to Goshen College’s base in the Florida Keys where my classmates and I spent a week snorkeling and studying in a lab. I have been able to travel with my softball team to Kentucky and to compete in Myrtle Beach for mini terms, as well as stay local and serve at the local Hartville Migrant Center and animal shelters. For three years I have had the privilege of being a mentor to younger students in the elementary, and I also was able to be a part of the VALUE reading program to assist elementary students with reading difficulties. My junior year, I traveled with 30 of my classmates to the Dominican Republic on a missions trip where we partnered with Meeting God in Missions to work in struggling Dominican communities. Even on my sports teams, I have been able to impact the community when my teammates, coaches, and I spent evenings feeding homeless people in Akron for Springtime of Hope or doing maintenance jobs for a local organization, GentleBrook. 

Lake Center has given me so many unique educational, recreational, and spiritual opportunities that have allowed me to serve in my school and surrounding communities as well as partake in amazing traveling experiences. It is these memories and the ways Lake Center has helped me grow in my faith and expand my education that I will cherish forever.
