Thoughts from Our Signees
“Bishop Watterson has given me a platform to succeed in academics and athletics. My teachers have pushed me to work hard in the classroom. This hard work in the classroom has transferred over to my athletics. Deacon Campbell has been a huge role model for me. His leadership, especially during these hard time, is testament to who he is.”
“Bishop Watterson has always put me in a position where I can thrive and be successful. This personal achievement could never have been attained without the constant support and positivity of the Bishop Watterson community.”
“My coaches and teammates on the BW volleyball team pushed me every day to get better and work hard. Their commitment to me helped me to get the opportunity to play in college.”
“The volleyball staff helped me to improve as an athlete, leader and teammate over the past four years. My teachers and classmates drove me to strive for excellence in the classroom and in the community.”
“BWHS has an amazing support system. The teachers, staff and students are always pushing me to do my best in school, out of school and in the gym. The life lessons I have learned go much farther than the sport of volleyball. The BWHS volleyball program has changed my life. The coaches, players and relationships have made me bring out the best version of myself and to dream big.”
“God works in mysterious ways. He has put people in my life that I would not be where I am without them. God has given me strength and faith to keep going when things get hard.”
