"I think Ethen will miss Ms. Lankowski, Mrs. Lutz, Mrs. Murphy, and Ms. Poole. These ladies have been pivotal in helping Ethen navigate his junior and senior year - especially Mrs. Poole. She took him under her wing and became more than just his teacher -- she became his friend." -Bobbie Cornett
"HHCA has truly blessed Daniel by affording him the opportunity to grow in all facets of his life. The mentoring he has received within the realms of his spiritual growth, academics, sports, and performing arts has helped shape him into a well-rounded individual. We are so proud of him and so thankful for everyone at HHCA who has been our extended family in raising this fine young man." -Dan Harrington | Daniel is excited to head to The United States Military Academy West Point!
"HHCA has provided Avery with a curriculum that is not only challenging, but also inspiring. The teachers (whom many he considers as mentors, counselors and friends) have encouraged him to strive for academic excellence and to truly be the best he can be. His participation in the Arts program has stretched him and taken him out of his comfort zone and at times into the “spot light." Most importantly, HHCA has not only taught Avery about God but has shown him how to have a growing relationship with Him. Over the years, Avery has considered HHCA as a school, a place of worship and a “home." -Sherry White | Avery is excited to head to the University of South Carolina!
"Ben's HHCA journey has been both challenging & eye-opening, hence in the end, inspired him to be himself, try new things, go outside his comfort zone & put others first." -Laurie Jones | Ben is excited to head to the College of Charleston!
"Kaleigh has had such a positive experience at HHCA. She had a great time cheering on the varsity cheer team. She learned so much from her Internship at Birdie James. But most of all, she has been able to thrive at what she loves most and that is musical theatre and singing. There have been so many opportunities for Kaleigh to be on the stage which has helped prepare her for her next phase of life at College of Charleston." Kayleigh is excited to head to the College of Charleston!

" -Steven Hall | Robert is excited to head to the University of South Carolina!
"Gracie will miss seeing her friends daily. She will miss laughing with Mr. Mousseau. She will miss seeing her sister, brother, mom, and cousin in the hallways. She will miss her parking spot! Gracie has created life long friendships, amazing memories during her time at HHCA. HHCA has felt like an extension of her home and family over the last 12 years. She has gained a firm foundation of who Jesus is and how loved she is. This Eagle is ready to SOAR!!" -Susan Buck | Gracie is excited to head to the University of South Carolina!

He started taking lessons at age 13 and is now scheduled to finish his private pilot's license here on HHI. His dream has always been to become a commercial airline pilot. He loved to fly even as a baby. Ben's going to miss the small size school, and the caring, loving teachers who really are involved in the students lives and truly want the best for them." -Silke Pyrlik | Ben is excited to head to the University of North Dakota!

"Margaret will honestly miss the relationships she has formed with her teachers probably more than anything else. While that may sound like the appropriate answer, in her case, it’s honestly true. She has forged some really great bonds within the teaching staff at HHCA and as a parent, I am grateful for that. She is a natural-born leader and as such, has excelled at her leadership positions within the myriad of clubs in which she has been involved. Margaret’s journey at HHCA has honestly impacted and enhanced her faith on many levels. The ability to shine as a leader both athletically and academically has served Margaret well, moving her to further involvement in local youth group organizations. In turn, this has resulted in Margaret being a grounded and Christian role model, not only among her peers in the community but for her younger siblings at home as well." -Catherine Donaldson | Margaret is excited to head to Mississippi State University's Honors College!
"Grace will miss her teachers and friends. She has a gentle and quiet spirit...through her journey, she has become secure and confident that God leads her path." -Melanie Hilton | Grace is excited to head to DePauw University!
"Piper will mostly miss the relationships she has built with teachers over the years. They have been a huge influence on her and helped to direct her life. HHCA has given Piper a base of Christianity which will impact her decisions and her life forever. Being able to see teachers, mentors and peers live out a Christian life in front of her every day has been an invaluable experience." -Donna Thomas | Piper is excited to head to the University of South Carolina!
"Clay will miss his great friends, both students and teachers at HHCA. He will miss Mr. Smith's AP Gov class.

He's going to miss his friends, teachers and Coach Peduzzi." -Christine Dolbeare | Stewart is excited to head to the University of South Carolina!
"Savannah will miss the close knit community environment and how well the teachers know her and truly mentor her. They have been incredibly supportive during a very difficult year. She has really connected with a number of her teachers at HHCA. They have challenged her and guided her through her academic pursuits and made it fun along the way. The caring community at HHCA has been incredibly supportive to her and our family through some very difficult and life altering events. Without the love and support she received from all the staff and classmates at HHCA, it would have been harder for her to move forward." -Ann Marie Kemper | Savannah is excited to head to Clemson University!
"I will miss Mr. Baute, Mr. Berry, Mrs. Davis, and Mrs. Jackson for always being there to talk to, the Academic Resource Center, chapel Thursdays and mostly the warm welcomes I received everyday I walked through those front doors from Mrs. Higgs. This year has really helped me and allowed me to grow musically and through dance and acting." -Rashad
"Joey enjoys all of the people at HHCA, but he will especially miss the teachers. HHCA's smaller class size and fewer teachers allows them to get to know students a lot more than in other school settings. Joey appreciates the personal investment that his teachers have made in him and in his classmates. They consistently demonstrate their faith, their humanity, and their exceptional ability to teach both academically and by example. Joey has grown to love teachers he thought he'd never get along with as well as those who he bonded with right away. HHCA has offered a perfect environment to Joey. In lower school, it was protective. Teachers recognized Joey's shyness and lack of confidence and found ways to make him feel safe and unique. In middle school, it was encouraging. As Joey came out of his shell, his teachers presented him with multiple opportunities to be involved, to learn, and to emerge as a leader. In high school, it is inspiring. Joey's teachers challenge him to learn and to apply the knowledge. They give him opportunities to enjoy success and to accept failure. They demonstrate to him how to be better person than he was yesterday. They encourage him to try new things and reach for increasingly difficult goals. HHCA has played a large part in Joey's journey." -Shelly Reindl | Joey is excited to head to The University of Miami, Ohio!
"Floyd always aspires to inspire! HHCA is a FAMILY, a home away from home! I know that Floyd will miss this! He will miss his teachers, coaches and friends! Floyd will also miss the positive peer pressure to be like Christ! HHCA has been a blessing to Floyd! He has matured physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. HHCA has been a home away from home; an environment that encourages Floyd to live out his FAITH! Floyd will forever be a partner in the mission of HHCA--to know Christ and to make Him known!" -Charliece Capers | Floyd is excited to head to Furman University!
"Lexi will miss all of the younger students that she has had the wonderful opportunity to mentor and build relationships with through Young Life, her job as an ACE Counselor, and her leadership/mentor role in the Life on Life program. Lexi's 10-year journey at HHCA has been impacted the most through relationships: There are several teachers/mentors that have had a strong impact on Lexi, which have encouraged Lexi to have a strong desire and motivation to reach out to others to mentor. Young Life has been a critical part of Lexi's journey and she has led may other students to Young Life. Rebecca Joyner, from HHCA, introduced Lexi to YL." -Karen Qualls
Lexi is excited to head to Clemson University!
"Lauryn will miss her teachers that she has built strong relationships with over the years. She will miss the small, family-like environment that HHCA offers.

She has also loved playing on the Varsity Volleyball team for 5 years and will miss Coach DeSimone." -Karen Qualls | Lauryn is excited to head to Clemson University!
"Throughout her K-12 years, HHCA has taught Ansley in a lot of different areas. We asked her how she felt she has been most impacted by her journey at HHCA? Her reply, 'This is your one shot at life on this earth. Be the person who makes it a better place.' Thank you HHCA!" -Dave & Melanie Peck | She's excited to head to the University of South Carolina, Beaufort!
"I will deeply miss all of those who have guided me throughout my years at HHCA; Mr. Berry, Mrs. Johns, Mrs. McElroy, Ms. Kopitsky, and many others. I will miss my theatre cast mates and my Varsity Cheerleading team and spending countless hours practicing and doing what I love. I have been able to find my purpose in Jesus Christ and how to love others like he loves us." -Emma Stewart | Emma is excited to head to Withrop University!
"Jasmine will miss eating lunch with "the lunch bunch" in Coach Conroy's office. Jasmine has learned through ups and downs that it's what you choose to focus on that matters. The small class sizes that HHCA offers allowed Jasmine to form relationships with her classmates and teachers. She will particularly miss laughing and joking with Coach Conroy, Coach Peduzzi and Mr. Mousseau. She will also miss the special bonds that she formed with Mr. Langhals, Mrs. Richardson, Mrs. Johns, and Mrs. Higgs." -Yolanda Campbell | She's excited to head to Claflin University!
