Dawn Shute talks about the weightiness of investing into "unformed minds" and that these students "are not who they are going to be."
Dawn Shute is one of several teachers at ECS that I would like to personally have as my teacher. She is authentic, intelligent, hardworking, and loves to teach her students day-in-and-day-out. She embodies the mission of ECS and truly desires to pursue excellence for God's glory. Mrs. Shute is featured in the last installment of our Be Known Film Series. She talks about the weightiness of investing into "unformed minds" and that these students "are not who they are going to be."
The heart of these video vignettes is to depict the pursuit of our mission at ECS. We have told eight different stories from various vantage points highlighting their ECS journeys. The power of story is significant because one gets an authentic view of reality from diverse life-stage perspectives. From the eyes of charming Grace Anne Williams in senior kindergarten to the charisma of Celie Ozier and her talents as a thespian. From the depth of conviction of Holly and Chip Hudson in sending their children to ECS to the playfulness and authenticity of Melissa and Chris Boals. From an overall vision from my perspective to two beloved alumni, Avery and Curtis Gardner, and, finally, captain Ben Lomo on the soccer pitch. These stories reveal something special that serves as the bedrock of ECS.
You can discover all the "Be Known" series film vignettes on this page of our website. I encourage you to text these to your family and friends, post on social media, email them to others. Be active in getting the word out about this special place.
