Gabby has attended Classical Christian Academy from Kindergarten through 12th grade with her Senior graduation arriving soon. Gabby was born and raised in the Coeur d Alene area, the youngest of three sisters, and the last graduate of CCA among them. She played soccer for CCA which revealed her competitive spirit and led to club soccer from nine years old through her sophomore year. Her desire was to play volleyball for CCA her Junior and Senior years. She participated in many activities at CCA with speech meets, class history days, school play, and Poetry Out Loud as well as cultivated friendships throughout the student body. It is these friendships which Gabby values most.
Gabby has been blessed to be part of a truly special and unique class that have grown throughout the years with deeply rooted and lifelong friendships where they’ve encouraged, supported and persevered to become a CCA graduate. The established relationships with the teachers has provided a special bond and desire to always keep alive. The classroom discussions and laughter are treasured blessings. Some of her favorite books are City of God, The Brothers Karamazov, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Frankenstein.
Her first inkling in what she enjoyed doing was realized when Mr. Chastain’s first baby was born and Gabby wanted her class to host a baby shower. This catapulted her to combine her likes of event planning and passion in sports. Gabby will be attending Grove City College in Pennsylvania to study Sports Management to pursue a career with a professional sports team in planning their organizational events. She is looking forward to attending GCC with her cousin Luke, also a CCA 2022 graduate. Finally, she is very thankful for Mr. Stutzman’s leadership especially in developing CCA as a singing community and is looking forward to joining the GCC choir.
