School inducts NHS members

Hill Country Christian School in October held its very first National Honor Society induction ceremony.
For the past three years, the school has been under the San Marcos Academy’s Sigma Mu Alpha chapter.
 The first two induction ceremonies were held with the academy, but this year Hill Country Christian School was given the opportunity to conduct its own induction ceremony.
This year there were five new inductees including senior Abigail Harvey, junior Major George and sophomores Savannah Walton, Jada Williamson and Madi Hall.

Colonel addresses class

On Oct. 28, Hill Country Christian School’s government class attended Col. Allen West’s speech at Feast Home School in San Antonio.
West spoke about the need for Americans to be educated so that they are aware of their personal liberties and are able fight to retain those rights.
He also noted that the role of the government is to protect people’s inalienable rights, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
West cited examples such as Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists, which reassured them of their right of religious freedom.
