Faith West Announces Valedictorian and Salutatorian

Madison Muse was named valedictorian of Faith West Academy Class of 2019.  She is the daughter of Jason and Shannon Muse. Madison excelled in the classroom where she took Advanced Placement and Honors courses and had a four-year GPA of 4.82, as well as participated in numerous extracurricular activities. Madison attended FWA for 13 years. She was a member of the Lady Eagles varsity volleyball team (4 years), varsity swim team, senior class Treasurer, National Honor Society, and Science National Honor Society member. Volleyball awards include 1st Team All District and Academic All-State. Madison’s favorite memory of her senior year was the senior trip to Disney World and early into the senior year, she and several of her classmates jumped into Lake West after participating in the Annual Color Run. Her favorite Bible verse comes from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 

She will attend Missouri University of Science & Technology (receiving over $92,000 in scholarships) and will be pursuing a degree in Chemical Engineering.

 

The salutatorian, Phu Huu G, Nguyen (Jack), is the son of Phuoc and Huong Nguyen. Jack attended FWA for six years, as an I-20 student from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. He took Advanced Placement and Honors courses and had a four-year GPA of 4.72. Jack was a member of the International Club (Sgt.-at-Arms) for four years, National Honor Society (Treasurer during his senior year) for three years, and played varsity soccer for two years. His favorite Bible verse comes from Ecclesiastes 12:13; “. . . Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.” Jack’s favorite memory also was the senior trip to Disney World, but for a different reason. “I will always remember pulling an ‘all nighter’ before we left. We were supposed to be at the airport by 3:00 AM, but it was closer to 5:00 AM before our plane departed.”

Jack’s advice to others is: “Find your purpose. Do not try to be good at everything, but do try to be the best at the one thing that matters most to you.”

He will be attending Texas A&M University at College Station to seek a degree in Computer Science and Engineering. His plans are to use this degree to pursue a career in software design or robotics.

Secondary Course Selection

Each school year, 6th through 11th grade students are required to make their course selections for the following school year. They also must select whether they want to be placed in a Pre-Advanced Placement (PAP), Advanced Placement (AP), Dual Credit (DC), or College Prep (CP) version of their core classes. High school students may select two electives; junior high students may select one elective. Some electives fill early, so return your signed Course Selection sheet to Mrs. Derry as early as possible.  These forms will be sent home with your student the week of April 15. If this sheet was lost or misplaced, you may print one from the Secondary Course Selection page.
