Despite the unusual ending to the school year, we are incredibly proud of our students and how strongly they performed throughout the year – whether that meant sitting at a desk in the classroom, or at their kitchen table at home. Each year, we honor students who stand out in each discipline, those who achieve high academic status, and those who show exemplary and Christ-like character. Usually, we all gather in the Cafetorium to honor and celebrate our students’ hard work. Even though we cannot gather together this year, we are excited to announce the 2020 winners of the following awards. Department Awards Each department has selected students to recognize. These students will receive a certificate.

Christian Character Awards
The Christian Character Award is given to students, by students. It is given to one male student and one female student in each grade whose life is consistently marked by the fruit of the Spirit: love joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. This award is not based on grades, popularity, or athletic ability. These students will receive a Christian Character pin.

The Suzanne Belknap Memorial Award is given to the female students that have the highest GPA at the end of their Sophomore year. (These students must have attended LCA as a Freshman and be continuing as a Junior.) The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage young women to continue to strive for academic excellence. This is given in honor of the incredible example of high academics achieved by the Suzanne Belknap family. Four continuous generations of women have been the valedictorians of their class. Starting with her mother Harriet Hendrick, then Suzanne Hendrick Belknap herself, her daughter Julie Belknap Nieveen, and her granddaughter Ellie Nieveen. It is the hope of the Belknap family that the winders of the Suzanne Belknap Memorial Award will continue with their academic diligence and also be at the top of their graduating class.
