Conecuh Springs Christian School has completed twenty years of educating students. The seniors graduating have experienced an unusual two years of high school with the guidelines to follow due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The CSCS graduating class of 2021 are Marlene Reyes Bautista (Valedictorian), Evangelina Bravo Mota (Salutatorian), Richard Santay, and Efrain Perez Vaquero.
First Baptist Church celebrated these graduates and their accomplishments with hosting their Baccalaureate Service on Sunday, May 23, 2021, and their graduation program on Thursday, May 27, 2021.
Mona Padgett, CSCS Administrator, wrote to the church congregation in the June 2021 "Broadcaster" newsletter, "Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice! We have completed our TWENTIETH year, and what a year it has been! We are so grateful and thankful for the Lord's provisions and all that HE had done in the twenty years of Conecuh Springs Christian School. Our church is such a blessing to the community through this ministry of Conecuh Springs Christian School and we are excited to begin our twenty-first year in the fall."
She wrote in the May "Broadcaster": "The last few weeks of school always prove to be some of the busiest yet most rewarding days of the year.
"Standardized testing, baseball games, Relay for Life, awards, graduation...many of the things we missed in 2020! And we are so thankful...thankful for the Lord's provisions and that He saw us through what has proven to be one of the most unusual years in our school's history.
"Twenty years later and the ministry of Conecuh Springs Christian School is continuing to give parents an option for educating their students in the word of God."
