• Jeffrey Conner has been a member of the band since fourth grade, playing trombone, alto saxophone and tenor saxophone. While in high school Jeffrey participated in the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy, Mission Impossible, Track and Field and has served as the music department co-op and as a Dunham Scholar. Outside of school Jeffrey writes and raps his own songs, and, during the summer of 2021, he successfully completed the Berklee College of Music Aspire: 5-Week Performance Program. One of Jeffrey's dreams is to change the world by spreading the Gospel and playing his saxophone. Jeffrey plans to attend Grand Canyon University in Arizona to major in Music Performance.

What challenges did the Class of 2022 face as they returned to in-person school full time, and how did they overcome them: We had the good fortune of being able to have school in-person, full-time due to the space we have here in the building, so there was no real adjustment needed. We are grateful!

Principal's reflections on the Class of 2022: The Aurora Christian HS Class of 2022 has been a fantastic group of students, academically, athletically, and spiritually. They have persevered through two tough years that came with many uncertainties and challenges, yet found success, created lasting memories, and established lifelong friendships.

As they take the next step into adulthood, I pray they will stay grounded in their faith, seek after God in all that they do, and be a light to others around them. Congratulations ACS Class of 2022!

-- Principal Stacy Beebe
