MEET OUR 2017 GRADUATES

Our halls will soon seem empty when these students 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 2017.

ASHLEY ALEXANDER, Valedictorian


There are students who set out to set themselves apart from others; those with intentions to set the stage and define a standard for those who will follow in their footsteps. Ashley Alexander is not one of those people. It is not in her character to be above others or to demand attention for being an overachiever. She simply does. Though her accolades definitely do set her apart, she just strives to be the best she can be in order to represent herself, her family and her Lord with dignity. Ashley is a beautiful spirit who has no need to hold the attention of a room, but her grace, kindness and compassion for others definitely sets a standard that we should feel compelled to live up to.

Ashley is a versatile student who obviously keeps her academic responsibilities as top priority. She will graduate with a 4.37 GPA and has earned 33 hours of dual credit. She is President of the National Honor Society who also spent two years as Class Secretary. She is involved in student leadersip at her church and obtained many community service hours through Paul Stege Ministries.  Her servant's heart earned her over 180 community service hours and she also went on three mission trips to Equador. Ashley's confidence afforded her three trips to the TAPPS State Speech & Academic competitions and she was also a recipient of the 1 Timothy 4:12 Award that is given out by our own school board. This award was very special to Ashley because it represents her favorite Bible verse. In addition to the academic accolades and volunteering, Ashely put in some time with the athletes of Rosehill. She was a member of the varsity Track & Field Team and was honored to have qualified to run in the TAPPS State Track & Field Compeition more than once. 

With her high school days coming to an end, Ashley says her best memories will have to be the times she spent competiting and cheering on her fellow teammates in the TAPPS Speech & Academic competitions. She admits she is going to miss "the relationships I have developed with such incredible teachers who have guided, strengthened, a nd loved me in Christ and God's word". Ashley will be attending Texas A&M Universtity this fall where she will major in Business Management and minor in Marketing. She will also be utilizing her love of photography during her time in college. Ashley is very much looking forward to "using the opportunities to take all God has taught me through friendships, teachers, family, and church and use it outside Rosehill and my home for His glory and my growth"

Favorite Bible Verse: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

SION FIREW, Salutatorian


Sion Firew will graduate from Rosehill with a 4.3 GPA. As a member of the National Honor Society, Sion maintained her focus on her grades throughout her high school career. One of her favorite memories and a high school accomplishment that she is very proud of is her Black History Month exhibit. While Sion is looking forward to leaving for college, she will says she will miss Mr. & Mrs. Tumlinson and Mr. Cooper.
We are very excited to see what God has planned for you, Sion!

Favorite Bible Verse: “I will praise you, Lord. Although you were angry with me, your anger has turned away and you have comforted me. Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.” Isaiah 12 1-2

YAMI ARZOLA


As beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside, Mariah Baz will graduate with eight hours of dual credit and a 3.7 GPA this year. Mariah left Rosehill for a short time and we are ever so grateful that she returned to finish her high school years with her friends. She is a jokester and enjoys her fun-loving personality while adding a little spice to this class. With all the joking aside, Mariah is a serious student and a committed athlete.



Favorite Bible Verse: For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
Timothy 1:7

RACHEL BUCKHOFF


This sweet soul walked into the halls of Rosehill with an ever present smile and such an endearing nature. Morgan Browning will graduate from high school with 6 hours of dual credit and a 3.7 GPA. As a conscientious student, Morgan spends much of her time concentrating on her grades and preparing herself for college. She has spent much of her volunteer time working with the Houston Children's Festival and several other organizations during her high school career.


Favorite Bible Verse: Since, then, you have been raised with Christ set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. Colossians 3:1-3

CHLOE CHRISTMAS


A friendly soul with a promising future ahead, Braedy Chute is very much a credit to this graduating class. Though he may seem quiet, his sense of humor makes him one the favorites in this group of seniors. When asked recently what he considers to be a high school accomplishment, with a smile on his face Braedy simply stated, "Hopefully graduating". True, that may be the final outcome of his high school career, but Braedy has much more than walking across the stage to affirm his success.


Favorite Bible Verse
: But God commendeth His love towards us in taht while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8

CHAD COLBORN

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.

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

 

MEGHAN DAUTERIVE


If you have not had the good fortune to ever be in the presence of this young man, you do not know what you are missing. Jake Cooper is one of those people you simply feel comfortable around, as if you have known him forever. He stands strong in his faith, has an undeniable love for his family and friends, and is a true gentleman of character. While these traits may seem to describe him as a quiet sort, do not be fooled. He is definitely someone who does not require attention, yet somehow has it at all times. It is impossible to be in a bad mood when Jake is in your midst.


Jake says what he will miss most about high school is "getting to see my friends daily, and by friends I mean like, the entire student body". His best high school memories will always be senior year at Pinnacle and baseball playoffs. He will be leaving us for College Station, where he will being his college career at Blinn. He is not sure exactly what he will do after that first year, but he is looking forward to being on his own and he is confident that God has great plans for his future.

Julianne Froelich has been a promising student at Rosehill since kindergarten. She can certainly be considered to be the "what to do" person of their group.

ZACH SPEARS


There is a high spirited, sweet natured, full of life, young man soon to leave the Rosehill campus. We fondly know him as Hunter Juneau-Kepp. With all the wonderful experiences life has afforded to Hunter, he has managed to maintain that small town, soft spoken personality, yet can quickly become the life of the party at the drop of a good beat. He shares a close bond with his friends and is definitely a favorite amongst this class.

Hunter has been a student as Rosehill since his days of preschool, making this his most comfortable home away from home. He is highly involved with his family business ventures and spends countless hours volunteering his time for Team Never Quit, helping with everything from managing inventory to participating in publicity events. Needless to say, his volunteer hours will definitely not end in high school. Hunter recently received an award at the TAPPS State Art Competition for First Place in Photography for Senior Portfolio.

What Hunter will miss most about high school is "my squad (who are my life-long friends) and waking up every morning at 6 AM to work out with Justin Shoemaker". With his high school days soon to be a thing of the past, Hunter is looking forward to his time at LSU (Louisiana State University) where he will be a student who will surely be attending all of those college football games. We are excited to see what God has planned for Hunter and his future!
