Senior Spotlight on Mitchell Moody
Class of 2019 President Mitchell Moody will long be remembered around campus for the positive example he set for our younger students.
Mitchell is one of two students voted “Most Likely to Impact the World for Christ” by his fellow seniors, and he certainly has left his mark at WCA. Recently, he was part of a school record-setting track and field relay team, and he has played both the piano and viola for many years. In addition to his own solo musical accomplishments, he helped WCA win several Fine Arts awards, as part of string ensembles and as a duet partner.
Some highlights of his time at WCA are taking mission trips to Guatemala, playing sports in middle school and high school, participating in his senior play, homecoming games, and his junior and senior class trips. When asked about his favorite WCA memories, Mitchell commented on all the fun teachers he has enjoyed during his 13 years as a student.
He is attending Welch College in the fall as a student-athlete, while studying math and music. Mitchell is ready for his first year of college, and he says, “I look forward to continuing my studies, applying what I’ve learned, and making friends. I am especially looking forward to running cross country, working with my team, and plugging-in to a church in the area that needs a piano player.”
Mitchell feels he is prepared for life after WCA, because of the academic and spiritual training he has gained here. He shares, “The personal relationships and conversations one can have with teachers and faculty at Wake Christian makes a big difference, because it is evident that these teachers care for you”.
His longtime music teacher, Norma Fincher, reflects on her time with Mitchell, “In the 13 years I’ve had the privilege of teaching Mitchell piano, viola and general music, I’ve never seen him let down his testimony or respond negatively to a suggestion or correction. Godly character is evident in his life. He is a successful leader because he is a diligent and selective follower. Mitchell “majors” on what is important and doesn’t get bogged-down by trivialities.”
Mitchell’s example is a challenge to our students; to remember that the best leaders were once observant and wise followers.
We are excited to see the Lord’s plans continue to unfold in Mitchell’s life and in the lives of his classmates! We’re proud of our seniors – may the Lord richly bless the WCA Class of 2019!
And if you know of a church near Welch College in-need of a pianist, you know who to call!
