Heritage Academy congratulates Class of 2014

In arguably the most exciting time of the year, the Heritage Academy proudly celebrated the graduation of 36 intelligent and successful senior students on May 22, 2014. As students began finishing their final exams and wrapping up year-end passion area events, they geared up for a series of graduation events to celebrate their academic and extracurricular achievements.

On Wednesday, May 21, 2014, family, friends and the Heritage community gathered at Christ Lutheran Church for the Senior Awards Ceremony. The evening was devoted to the presentation of awards for academic excellence, Heritage core values and related achievements. Also recognized were those seniors with highest academic distinctions.


Heritage Academy’s Teacher of the Year, Lee Bracken, spoke to those in attendance with words of congratulations and offered advice to the graduating group as they embark on the next chapters of their lives.

Thursday morning on May 22, 2014, family, friends and relatives filed into the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina to witness the graduation of the seniors. Each student was called forth to receive his or her diploma while the audience enjoyed a recap of academic achievements and future plans told over a slide show of old photos.


Graduates from the Class of 2014 will leave their legacies behind at Heritage Academy but will embark on bright adventures in their futures. Students in the Class of 2014 will attend 30 different universities nationwide including Arizona State University, Boston University, Johnson and Wales and New York University, among others.

Mr. Zawacki Hosts Holiday Debate

A debate was conducted in United States History class regarding the current status of Columbus Day.

The Question:  Should Christopher Columbus be so honored and given a special day of commemoration?

The affirmative took the position that Columbus was a genuine hero whose legacy deserves special recognition, while the negative viewed Columbus as a terrorist; one guilty of genocide and unworthy of acclaim.

The affirmative won the debate on points.
