Ignite Christian Academy would like to congratulate the members of the class of 2014 who participated in our virtual and regional graduation ceremonies this spring.
Thirty-one graduates attended the virtual ceremony on Friday, May 23. Broadcast live from the campus of Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa, the ceremony honored students as far away as Trinidad, Israel, and South Africa.
Pastor Roger Bouwman, who serves as a Bible teacher at Ignite Christian Academy, delivered the graduation address. His message encouraged students to remember their roles as Christians and lights unto the world as they prepare to transition to a new phase of life.
Bouwman's address was followed by the presentation of academic awards and the presentation of diplomas. The graduates who attended the virtual ceremony have a wide variety of future goals, which include entering the workforce, taking over family businesses, and attending college to become teachers, lawyers, and more.
In addition, 21 graduates celebrated their accomplishments with friends and family in Winter Park, Florida, on Friday, June 6. The ceremony began with a student address about faith by graduate Ezekiel Friedrich. Following the student address, Christian school teacher, author, and freelance writer, Kristin Hogrefe, offered words of wisdom about living an extraordinary life in her address to the graduates. Seniors, along with their family and friends, had the opportunity to visit with other graduates at a reception following the event.
A total of 69 students participated in ICA graduation ceremonies this spring, including those who attended the ceremony in Allen, Texas last month.
Current students who are interested in participating in future Ignite Christian Academy graduation ceremonies can look forward to the spring of 2015. Details regarding the 2015 ceremonies will be released throughout the next year. For updates, like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter. Graduation information will also be included in future editions of the ICA Today.
