This senior class holds a very special place in our hearts. Some of them have been together since preschool, many have joined us along the way, and a couple of them are even new to us this year. No matter how long they have been at Rosehill, each individual fills a special place to create a family. They have faced challenges of excess homework, cramming for exams, dating and dances. They have mourned the loss of a young classmate and bonded through their tested faith while nearly losing another. They have said goodbye to a beloved coach. They have challenged their teachers, faced their fears, and made their parents proud. They have worshipped together and learned important life lessons through character building experiences at Pinnacle. They have traveled afar as teammates and as friends. From the classrooms to the stage, from the gym to the fields, and under those Friday night lights... they have made memories that will last a lifetime.
Our halls will soon seem empty when they graduate and leave us to embark on the next chapter of their lives. As young adults, they are more than equipped to stand proud as believers and as future leaders of our communities. Some already have such amazing plans for the future, while others are anxious to see where God leads them. Because their parents chose to place them in Rosehill, we are confident they will travel in faith knowing God is with them through every step of their journey.
Meet our class of 2016.
This beautiful young lady joined this class at the beginning of her sophomore year, but it feels as if she has been a part of the Rosehill family much longer. Morgan Chute will graduate with her brother Braedy next month, bringing much pride to the Chute family. She will finish her high school career with a 3.2 GPA and carry nine hours of dual credit with her.
Morgan has a friendly personality and though can seem quiet at times, she is a friend to each one of her classmates and they are all better to know her. She is an amazing artist who does not seek attention, but from what we have seen of her work, it definitely should be shared with other. Morgan is proud to call herself the daughter of a pastor and is very involved with a missions organization at Southwinds Baptist Church. They travel to area hospitals together and witness to patients, staff and visitors. She really enjoys spending time volunteering with Heritage House.
As with most of our graduating seniors, Morgan says her greatest memories of Rosehill happened at Pinnacle. Her junior year has a specific recollection; "some girls in our cabin decided to have a 'Miranda Sings' advice session". We aren't sure what that was all about, but we are thankful it holds a special place for Morgan. When asked what she will miss most about high school, Morgan says, "All the cool teacher; how laid back a lot of it is; how it's like a family".
Morgan is looking forward to sleeping after graduation, and her plan is to earn a degree in English. She has a desire to find a job in publishing where she can eventually become an editor. We know God has some amazing plans for Morgan and cannot wait to see how her future unfolds.
Favorite Bible Verse: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-13
Hailey Juneau has proudly been a student at Rosehill since Kindergarten. She followed the steps of family members when she became a part of the Rosehill family, and she will proudly graduate with many of her former kindergarten classmates in a few short weeks. Hailey has a sweet nature and very much enjoys being a part of the crowd, as she holds a special place in the hearts of all of her friends. She is a young lady who is very personable and once you have met her, you will feel as if you have known her forever.
Hailey has completed over 100 hours of community service and takes pride in making sure all those around her stay happy. She is a friend to everyone. She has a passion for sports and has spent many hours managing both the varsity basketball and varsity baseball teams. Hailey says that "getting to be in the dugout almost every day with my best friends and going to Disney" with the baseball team are her greatest high school memories. For some reason, when asked what she considers to be a high school accomplishment, Hailey stated, "I only broke one person's arm". (You will need to see her for an explanation of that unfortunate event.) She does admit she will miss eating lunch in Mr. Cooper's classroom with her friends every day, but she is very much looking forward to college.
Hailey will be joining many of her Rosehill friends in College Station this fall where she will begin her college career at Blinn. As far as her future is concerned, Hailey hopes to help continue one of the family businesses after she has completed her education. It is certain we will see more of Hailey as she comes back over the next couple of years to support her younger sister, as Cori sets out to reach all of her high school goals. We are anxious to see what God has ahead for you, Hailey!
Favorite Bible Verse: Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
Paxton Martin is definitely one of those young men who exudes the aura of confidence. Upon meeting him, you just know that his future is bright. He has the personality to capture a room and can carry on a conversation with most anyone about anything. Paxton is an extraordinary student who maintains a 4.0 GPA and will graduate with a remarkable number of 32 dual credit hours. He is not only a member of the National Honor Society, Paxton also serves as their Chaplain. He also spent his senior year as a NHS Student Ambassador for Rosehill.

He placed 4th in state at the TAPPS art competition in Painting and more recently was the Gold Medalist in Printmaking in the State of Texas TAPPS Art Competition.
Paxton comes from a wonderful, Christian family and has a servant's heart. Though he obviously spends a lot of time working towards maintaining his GPA, he manages to find time to volunteer in the community. He has gathered over 130 hours volunteering for his church, the Houston Children's Festival, Marshall Fire Department, Houston Food Bank, Run for Hemophilia, and Tomball Animal Rescue. He also spent three years as class secretary for the student council, proving to be a leader among his peers.
Not only is Paxton an exceptional student, he is also a gifted athlete who is going to really miss those Friday night lights. As a 3-year member of the varsity football team, Paxton was highly recognized for his football achievements during his junior and senior year for Academic All-State and 1st Team All-District Safety. He was also a finalist for the Houston Touchdown Club's Defensive Player of the Year Award. He says his best high school memories will always be the Friday night football games. Paxton was very active with AAU Basketball and a dedicated member of the varsity basketball team for three years, where he was named Academic All-State his junior year. This multi-sport athlete is also a award winning member of the Eagle varsity track team and qualified to participate at the state level in the 4 X 400 Relay junior and senior year. Paxton says he is really going to miss high school sports, his friends and "not having many responsibilities", but he is "looking forward to being and adult and going to college". Paxton will head to Texas A & M Galveston with plans to further his education in med school and someday become a doctor. God has great plans for this young man and he is well equipped to capture his dreams.
Favorite Bible Verse: The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23: 1-6
Favorite Bible Verse: The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:2
