HOMECOMING COURT AND SENIORS HONORED

Just a year and a half ago the dorms were reopened and began to include international students for the first time ever. Students from far and wide have made Red Bird Christian School and Mission their home away from home since the start of the 2014-2015 school year. Our 2016 Homecoming Court reflected the diversity of our student population.  The Court included King, Thomas Wilder, who is a local student; Queen, Lionnelle Mashini who is a student from DRC; Prince, Seth Caroll, who is from Colorado; Princess, Mekelle Muncy who is a local transfer student.

Lionnelle Mashini, the first international student to be elected by the student body to the Court in RBCS history, was voted Homecoming Queen. Reflecting on her time at Red Bird, Lionnelle said, “Red Bird means so much to me! Red Bird has strengthened my faith in God. I believe more in God and I learn that anything is possible if you really want to do it.”

Principal Mike Hensley added, “We are honored to have Lionnelle representing Red Bird Christian School as our 2015-2016 Homecoming Queen. She is a wonderful young lady and very deserving of any and all the accolades she receives. She is a great representative of the younger generation and exhibits the highest character and Christian values. Congratulations Lionnelle!”
