Legacy Academy hosts Scholar Induction 09/29/23
LOCKESBURG – Legacy Academy held its Scholar Induction Ceremony on Thursday, Sept. 21 inducting eight new Scholars into their final stage of learning at Legacy Academy. Legacy Scholars are Rhetoric level students, sophomores to seniors. Each year, selected Sophomore students are inducted to join other upper level students. This year’s newly promoted Scholars include:
- Skylar Alexander
- James Bartek
- Wesley Carrell
- Gabe Cox
- Jack Currence
- Everrette Martz
- Cameron Ogé
- Wyatt Roden
In this ceremony, Legacy Academy recognized these students’ status as role models and upperclassmen, and the school now becomes a stronger entity as these students signify their commitment to upholding the values of the Christian faith in their school in sight of their peers, their teachers, their families and God. After accepting a charge from school founder, Chad Gallagher and signing their own honor pledge, students were given their navy blazers – which become part of their formal uniform – by their parents. The navy blazer is the culmination of their career at Legacy Academy and signifies their new role as leaders on campus. Parents then laid their hands on and prayed for their children at the culmination of the ceremony.
Earlier in the ceremony, the new Rookies were set in (K-2nd grade), new Protégés were promoted (3rd-6th), and the new Apprentices (7th-9th) were recognized. The entire school body took part as existing students in each rank stood to re-affirm their age-appropriate charges.
Founder Chad Gallagher said, “Our Scholar Induction Ceremony represents so much of the heart of Legacy Academy. Our most precious asset is the student body, and we are incredibly privileged to have the opportunity to invest in their lives as they grow in Christ and mature into young men and women of faith. Evenings like tonight are important milestones for our eldest students as they commit publicly and in their hearts to honor God and to follow His purpose for their lives. We are proud of them and we are committed to securing for them a bright future of hope, faith and joy.”
