38 Year Legacy at WCGS
The Anderson and Gieser families have spent a total of 38 years in the WCGS community. Being anywhere for 38 years has a tremendous impact on one’s life. This is why we asked both families to answer a few questions and reflect on their time at WCGS after they both graduated their youngest child in May of 2018.
How has WCGS had an impact on your family?
Andersons: WCGS had a huge impact on our family. Our children received a Christ-centered education in an extremely nurturing and spiritually sensitive environment that is part of the foundation of who they are today. When our oldest son was diagnosed with leukemia in 8th grade, the entire WCGS community jumped into action and provided direct encouragement, prayer, and support to each member of the family. For this, we are forever grateful. WCGS is much more than a school. It is a vibrant Christian community that blends great education with
What would you say is the benefit of a WCGS education and how have you seen it play out in your children’s lives?
Andersons: WCGS prepared our children for life. The excellent academics, spiritual development, and nurturing environment all contributed to their success in high school, college, and as young adults. WCGS helped our oldest son develop a strong character and reliance on the Lord that carried him through his illness. Our second oldest wasn’t a reader in first grade, but through proper intervention and encouragement, he has become one of the most ferocious readers we know. Our daughter benefited from the strong academics and excelled in high school, and our youngest had the opportunity to enjoy many different extracurricular activities that built integrity, teamwork, and a strong work ethic. An education from WCGS is a blessing that benefits every child.
As you reflect on your time at WCGS, do you have
any other comments or stories you’d like to add?
Andersons: We were convinced to choose WCGS when we experienced the prayer support shared at a Kindergarten Roundup for a school family in critical need. Little did we know that the Lord was leading our family to WCGS to become a recipient of that prayer during our own time of critical need.
