Summit Christian Academy seniors receive Integrity scholarship

May 22, 2013 

Summit Christian Academy seniors Easton Parks and Sarah Lambert recently were awarded the second annual “Integrity Scholarship” offered by SCA business partner, Integrity Roofing. Seniors were provided the opportunity to write an essay on what integrity meant to them and how they have acted with integrity in life.

Lambert described her own struggle with an autoimmune disease: “Often times when your expectations of life are shattered, it’s easy to become bitter and angry. One who has integrity will not be corrupted by circumstances that seem to be unfair or difficult.”

Parks wrote: “A man of integrity keeps his word and stands up for his beliefs in the face of hardship and ridicule.” He continued by explaining how he demonstrates integrity at his workplace, “I strongly believe that consistently working hard even when no one is around to supervise shows integrity.”
