ANNUAL REVIEW


FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL

Gary B. Arnold

HOS Shines

Fellow Warriors: How does one capture the meaning and the impact of the past year while standing in the full flow and glow of this present year? Photographer Michael Baxley answers the question with his rousing cover photo. I urge you to study the photo closely. The bold banners expand on last year’s theme to “press on” with Peter’s exhortation to “make every effort to add to our faith.” Every day hundreds of school-children, parents and teachers entered our school’s gates with the firm intent to build on the solid foundation of our faith in Jesus. Every day we worked hard to teach the essentials for a productive and effective life. According to 2 Peter 1:5-8, those essentials are character, knowledge, selfcontrol, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness and love – woven into the fabric of our college preparatory education. Grateful to God for bringing us this far, we press on. Our work is not complete. There is much more to do. This commitment to move forward birthed our driving theme for the 2014-15 school year: “Rise and Shine!” Mr. Baxley captures this energy with the brilliance of the sun’s rays pouring over our school. Attention, Warriorville. It’s time to rise and shine, to reflect the glory of the Lord, to “shine like stars in the universe” holding out the Word of life to Little Rock and beyond. (Isaiah 60:1; Philippians 2:15) Thank you for your daily participation in the golden triangle of home, church and school. We are here to serve, to educate and to place Jesus at the center of all learning. We trust you will be pleased with the results of our labor chronicled in this year’s edition of the Annual Review.

Dr. Gary B Arnold, EdD President / Head of School “Men and women who have lived wisely and well will shine brilliantly like the cloudless, star-strewn night skies. And those who put others on the right path will glow like stars forever.” (Daniel 12:3)

Why Colleges are Recruiting LRCA Graduates

A

Little Rock Christian education is one that equips graduates with the necessary skills and accompanying discipline to become a life-long learner – a graduate who is able to flourish in a collegiate setting and vocation. Public and private universities nationwide recruit our students. Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia is a private university which, like LRCA, fosters a love of God and a love of learning. Both institutions offer an environment and curriculum which allow students to pursue, discern, and live truth as they serve our communities and the nations. Dr. Rex Horne has been the President of OBU since

2006 (and an LRCA grandparent since 2012). We asked him recently to describe what he is observing in our Warriors who attend OBU: “Ouachita does present a rigorous academic challenge. Students will find that they must be consistent in applying themselves to the challenge of university life. LRCA graduates do well here. There are two reasons as I see it. They are challenged by their teachers at LRCA. Also, they are told what to expect by [Warriors] who graduated from or presently attend Ouachita.” Committed, servants and relational are three words that Dr. Horne used to describe the Warriors in Arkadelphia.

Stockmarket Team Finishes Fifth in the Nation “It was great to meet these bright students who put their math, economics and personal finance skills to the test in the Stock Market Game while further developing their understanding of the global economy,” said Tim Griffin, Arkansas Congressman. The Little Rock Christian Academy Capitol Hill Stock Market Challenge Team finished first place in Arkansas and fifth place in the nation. FBLA club sponsor Susie Thompson and her team of students (pictured left-to-right with Mrs. Thompson and Congressman Griffin) Robert Thompson, Nathan Bentley, Lee Parker, Will Smith and William Goodrich traveled to Washington D.C. in June to be recognized for their Top 10 ranking in the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association’s Capitol Hill Challenge.

"This was a great opportunity for the students to see investing, risk, return and our world financial system in action. Being honored by Congress in Washington D.C. was an exceptional experience. I am so grateful to be part of a school that supports and encourages real world experiences." Susie Thompson, FBLA sponsor and Economics educator

Congressman Griffin visited with our students and watched firsthand as they invested a hypothetical $100,000 in listed stocks, bonds, and mutual funds and learned the value of saving and investing while working together to maximize the return of their portfolio. This 14-week challenge organizes teams of high school students by Congressional district and teaches the importance of savings and investing, while simultaneously promoting a better understanding of our government. This year, nearly 15,000 students from 733 schools participated in the Challenge.

Who is Cooper Lair? That would be the correct answer to: "This LRCA junior was a finalist in the game show Jeopardy." Encouraged by his father to take the online Jeopardy test and attend the live auditions in Atlanta, Cooper Lair can now call himself a third place finalist of the 2014 Teen Jeopardy Challenge. Preparing for the tournament required daily practice. Cooper utilized old Teen Jeopardy games, iPhone apps and read several books by former Jeopardy contestants. Studying LRCA Quiz Bowl questions, prepared by Coach Danny Erlandson, was helpful as well. Cooper is no stranger to Quiz Bowl competitions. In 2012 and 2013, while in Junior High, Cooper finished as the Overall Individual Champion in 5A competition. During 2014 Cooper was 5A All-Region, All-State, and he finished in first place in the North Little Rock Invitational, a competition for 5A through 7A schools. Cooper’s highlights from the Jeopardy experience include “running a category” or getting all five answers in a category correct. “It was also fun getting three different Daily Double answers correct, including a ‘true Daily Double’ in the finals,” said Cooper. With a third place finish in the finals Cooper walked away with winnings totaling $31,200. “The check was sent to me the day the last episode aired, and yes,” Cooper says with a smile, “it is liquid cash.” Cooper’s dad is quick to reply “cash that will all be used for college.” Overall it was an amazing experience for Cooper, his family, and all of his supporters and fans at Little Rock Christian Academy. 10

Seniors Build Relationships with ACCESS Students

n 2011, Little Rock’s ACCESS school, which offers full-time education, therapy, training and activities for children with learning disabilities, was in the midst of construction of a new therapy gym. Mrs. Carla Gregg, a mom with children at LRCA and ACCESS, was looking for space for the ACCESS spring prom. It was logical that Little Rock Christian could meet that need for the school which moved into its former campus on Breckenridge Drive. While meeting a need is good, the class of 2011 wanted more. They wanted to provide a memorable evening and build relationships. So they rolled out a red carpet to a decorated high school commons and put on their dancing shoes. A remarkable time was had by all. Parents stayed, and some LRCA faculty joined in the fun.

That was the beginning of a new senior class tradition that extends well beyond the prom itself. Mrs. Gregg recalls that the friendships created between the students have meant so much more than the physical space provided. Little Rock Christian students expanded relationships for those students into new circles. Girls have shopped together during the summer break, boys have played baseball, and friendships continue through Skype from college campuses. Each spring, a dozen or so of our senior students visit ACCESS about three or four weeks prior to prom. They get to know each other, plan the year’s prom theme, and determine the play list for the DJ. Their leadership reflects their faith in Christ as they joyfully serve the community. ANNUAL REVIEW

Warrior Hall also hosted several special events throughout the year. The “Wild about Warriors” PTF auction and the “Faith Fashion and Fill-Anthropy” luncheon, hosted by the Advancement office for our mothers and grandmothers, are two events that were previously held off-campus until the opening of Warrior Hall. Numerous guest speakers addressed students and parents in the Great Room regarding important education and parenting topics. The new facility has also allowed for improved space for professional development gatherings for over 230 faculty and staff members. We are grateful for this new facility and for the enrichments it is providing in the lives of our students, faculty, and community.

and proudly throughout their performance cheering wildly at the conclusion. One could hear the sounds of God’s glory as our warriors marched front and center, proudly bearing the cross and banner in hand, and making history with the very first marching guitarist to ever march in the Independence Day Parade.

The day of the parade was absolutely beautiful, the sun was shining with a slight breeze, as the temperature in D.C. barely crested eighty degrees. Dressed in crisp white pants and navy and green coats, Warrior Drum Majors, Maddie Gregg and Geoffrey Flemmons, proudly carried the name of Little Rock Christian Academy, displaying our love of Christ and the cross down Constitution Avenue. As Little Rock Christian’s Marching Warriors rounded the corner to start the parade, the crowd roared with excitement as the band began to play “Stars and Stripes Forever”, our beloved national march. Spectators clapped along boldly

The trip was an experience of a lifetime. Band members saw John Williams, composer of Star Wars, conduct a new arrangement of “The Star Spangled Banner” on the Capitol lawn. Students laid a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery; toured the Pentagon, Vietnam, and World War II Memorials; and visited Mount Vernon and the United States Capitol. Our Warriors not only shined with the glory of the Lord, but will forevermore shine in the hearts of those who were in our nation’s capital on that beautiful day. A day that made us all proud to be Americans, and proud to be Little Rock Christian Warriors! ANNUAL REVIEW

This experience has also given me an immense respect for my LRCA teachers.

She recently told us, “LRCA prepared me academically, and encouraged me to be involved in the LRCA community. This allowed me to develop excellent time management skills which have been an essential trait for my success at Rhodes.” Sarah is now on scholarship at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee as a point guard for the Lady Lynx. The Rhodes women’s basketball program finished the 2013-2014 season with a top-25 ranking in two polls, tying a school record set a year ago with a record of 25-4. In addition to classes and basketball, Sarah also presides as president of her sorority. Among Sarah’s favorite LRCA memories are the trips to the State Basketball Tournament. “Those were some of the

most exciting games of my life, and the support I felt from the LRCA community and my family was indescribable.” She credits Biblical Worldview discussions as helping her the most spiritually. “The class discussions equipped me with the tools necessary to take part in conversations with those who may not share the same beliefs as me.” Now in her fourth year at Rhodes College, Sarah describes her life as incredible. “That is the only way I can describe it. …. I have grown so much as a person by being part of the Rhodes community and accepting everything the Rhodes education has to offer. LRCA instilled in me the importance of involvement and participation in your community.” So what is next for this academic, athletic all-star? Medical school is her ultimate goal. She recently submitted her application and is hopeful for a positive outcome. Knowing Sarah’s determination, her future is promising!

Trustee Spotlight

BOARD of TRUST Shines

Ted Dickey “Ungrateful and selfish is my natural default,” Ted Dickey said about himself. Despite this, when Ted was invited to join the Board of Trust he was reminded to whom much is given, much is required. The “transforming effect” that LRCA was having on his kids inspired Ted to make that commitment, concluding “it would, in fact, be a premium return on my investment of time.” Ted, a lawyer and a self-described “finance bore,” spent the first part of his career seeing numbers through the lens of his work at Stephens Inc. Today, he is a partner in two real estate funds with fellow Little Rock Christian parent, Kevin Huchingson. In the community, he serves as an advisor to Innovate Arkansas and is on the boards of the Metropolitan Housing Authority, the University of Arkansas’ Technology Development Foundation, Search Ministries and Gravity Ventures.  Past honors include selection to the Arkansas Business “40 under 40” list of business people in Arkansas and chairing the Arkansas Ethics Commission.  LRCA’s finance committee has benefited from Ted’s expertise for several years. Ted additionally provides leadership in developing the LRCA Foundation for planned giving, along with Bill Scholl, Stuart Miller, and Steve Wade. Ted and Lila are parents to four Warriors: Grace Ann, Edward, Elizabeth and William. Together, they partner with Little Rock Christian to properly ground their kids in biblical principles, educate them in core curricula, and launch them with a Christ-centered worldview.

William Clark Inspired by a comment that Randy Likens with Search Ministries made to him: “You could be the only Bible someone ever gets exposed to,” William Clark is mindful that as a Christian, he is an example to others at all times. William serves as a deacon and Life Group Leader at Chenal Valley Church. He is also on the board of directors for Simmons Bank, the Rockefeller Cancer Institute Foundation, UAMS Foundation, and St. Vincent Foundation. He carries the legacy of his father Bill, a man who gave unselfishly of his time and resources to help others, through his leadership at Clark Contractors, LLC. A trustee of the school since 2011, William led the committee for strategic planning. He also served on the building committee during the construction of Warrior Hall. William finds it very rewarding to work with Dr. Arnold to strengthen the school and continually seek improvement. William and his wife Christy invest themselves in LRCA because they love the atmosphere. Christy serves on the Warrior Club board and has devoted hours to managing the Warrior Store. They know that their three sons are loved and prayed for every single day. William credits the school with excelling at its primary mission of education, and recognizes that the Christian teachings, safe environment, and community spirit make Little Rock Christian a great place for kids.

Well organized parent volunteers are almost always on campus and at school events. The Parent Teacher Fellowship is arranged into eight teams, each with a unique purpose. This gives parents and grandparents a specific smaller group in which to participate based on their individual interests or age of their students.

current professional experience. Their goal, when placing volunteers, is to match an individual’s interests, talents, and time availability with a position they will truly enjoy. Little Rock Christian greatly benefits from their service in areas such as development, community-building and school services. The Friends of the Arts organization has been incorporated into PTF this year in order to better facilitate the group’s service to our fine arts programs. Lynn Beardsley serves as the current president of the Parent Teacher Fellowship. Lynn worked professionally as a critical care nurse for 15 years and has served on numerous community boards and program committees. Lynn says, “I initially chose to get involved at Little Rock Christian Academy simply because this is where my children attend school. I wanted to support their educational experience. Now, however, I realize a bigger picture. Any time given, money raised, encouragement shared all goes to one ultimate goal: Building warriors for God’s Kingdom through LRCA. It is a real blessing to serve alongside the talented group God has crafted this year on the PTF Board.”

Along with raising funds for capital projects and equipment needs for our athletic teams, the Warrior Club also provides volunteers who man concession stands, sell spirit wear, and encourage a positive spirit at all of our competitions. Last year, under the leadership of President Jennifer Day, Warrior club awarded college scholarships to four athletes and purchased team uniforms for several sports. Over the summer Warrior Club, combined with Annual Fund giving, completed substantial facility projects including the addition of new restrooms at Warrior Field and the remodeling of coaches’ offices in the Warrior Athletic building.

The expansion and redesign of the Warrior Store has seen increased sales to begin the school year with a variety of new brands and warrior-wear styles available. Parent volunteers lovingly support our coaches with gift baskets and monthly lunches. This year’s President, Scotty Caroom, and a board of faithful parents lead the Warrior Club. The board works tirelessly to raise money through memberships, season passes, program sales, advertising, warrior wear sales, concession and gate sales, and the annual golf tournament held in May. Fans of Warrior Athletics support our student athletes with their turnout and school spirit at hundreds of games annually.

ANNUAL FUND Providing Essential Support for LRCA

A

fter years of capital campaigns to build out our campus, increase technology, and provide resources for classroom enhancement, we have introduced another giving option, the Annual Fund. It’s designed to provide essential support for our Christian, independent, collegiate academy. The Little Rock Christian Board of Trust is committed to charge what it actually costs to educate a child, no more or no less, thus leading us to an optimal Annual Fund model. Our model yields only value-added results. That means every dollar given to the Annual Fund goes to enhance, not make up a gap in revenue, in one of five broad categories determined by school leadership. These categories include professional development for teachers, curriculum resources, financial assistance, campus and equipment enhancements, and an endowment fund for long-term financial stability. Why is an Annual Fund so important? It’s simple, because tuition dollars don’t allow for improvements to be made on campus. Advancements to our programs and student classroom experiences, come from the support of our partners.

During our inaugural year we received the blessing of $650,000 in gifts to the Annual Fund. Every single dollar was used to enhance Little Rock Christian Academy. Thanks to our donors, 32 students whose families fit our mission but couldn’t afford our full tuition are now Warriors for 2014-2015. Our elementary nurses’ station was expanded and improved. The long lines at the Warrior Field restrooms have become a thing of the past with new facilities. New curriculum-mapping software was funded, along with additional development opportunities for teachers. Designated gifts to the Annual Fund also provided for new athletic and arts equipment as well as enhanced technology. Lastly, an endowment fund was established with $100,000 from Annual Fund giving. None of this could have happened without families blessing the school with gifts, some designated and many given without restriction, to better our Warrior experience. Thank you to every Warrior who supports our Annual Fund, both last year and this year and for years to come.

“…Our child has had a wonderful experience at LRCA, and here was a perfect opportunity to share LRCA with a family in need. Before this experience, I had no idea the Annual Fund was used for these types of situations. We feel so blessed to be part of LRCA, and the Annual Fund enabled us to extend this blessing to others.” - LRCA Parent 22
