This year, St. Luke School enters its twenty first year of “Teaching the Heart of Christ in the Heart of Columbus.” Over the years thousands of young lives have been shaped by our incredible faculty, staff and administration. In turn, SLS graduates and students have had an extraordinary impact on our community beyond the classroom with minds prepared in concert with a Christ-centered heart.
As your new Trustee Chair, I want to express my thanks to each of you who, whether as parents, grandparents or friends of SLS, have volunteered untold hours, given of your resources and prayed without ceasing for God’s providence in our efforts. Thanks also go to Head of School, Bill Shelnutt, for his leadership and to each member of our amazing faculty and administration for the care and expertise with which they teach. Although each year brings some transition, the SLS faculty and staff remain an exceptional team guiding our students to excel academically and preparing them for their next stage of life. I’d like to thank our Trustees whose volunteer service brings a Christ-centered diversity of perspectives to help guide SLS in fulfillment of its mission. Finally, I want to acknowledge and thank our Senior Pastor, Rev. Robert Beckum, for his insightful guidance and support of the SLS ministry. I have the utmost confidence in our School/Trustee/Church partnership as we work together to implement the SLS strategic plan.
Truly, St. Luke School is a ministry. Tish and I watched as SLS helped prepare our daughter Claire, a K-8 “lifer” and 2017 SLS graduate, for her high school years and beyond. The academic experience, relationships established, and Christian principles reinforced during her time at SLS sustain her today. We are so grateful for the impact SLS has had on our family. As we look to St. Luke School’s future, I thank you for your past support and ask that you continue to participate in our mission with your prayers, service and financial support. We are grateful that you have chosen St. Luke School. Go Lions!
