Last Thursday, Dr. Barry H. Corey, the President of Biola University, spoke to our community during Chapel on the topic of “Kindness.” Dr. Corey is the eighth President of Biola University and author of the book Love Kindness: Discover the Power of a Forgotten Christian Virtue. Dr. Corey also hosted a meet and greet with WCHS students interested in more information about Biola University during lunch and our administrative team spent some time with our Biola guests to discuss the hopes and challenges of Christian education. We are grateful for Dr. Corey and his team to visit and share with our community.
Westside Junior Chloe Brown has verbally committed to play volleyball at the University of Miami, having recently accepted their full ride scholarship offer. Miami competes at the Division I level in the Atlantic Coast Conference, also known as the ACC.
Chloe was named one of the Top 50 high school recruits in the country during her freshman year, garnering national attention from her play at both Westside and her club team Athena Volleyball Academy. With the dream of competing professionally, Chloe is excited for the athletic and personal development that will take place at the University of Miami. Miami’s women’s volleyball team has made the NCAA Tournament for the past seven consecutive years, and is only one of two teams in their Power 5 conference to do so. Chloe’s full scholarship offer includes all tuition, fees, books, room & board, supplies, and a monthly stipend.
When discussing Chloe’s verbal commitment, Westside’s Varsity Volleyball Coach Iben Andersen said, “I’m so excited for Chloe and Miami. It seems like the perfect match and I feel blessed to be a part of this young lady’s life and development. I’m excited to see what the future has in store for her and I’m very thankful for the hard work she put in here at Westside and with her club team Athena to make this a possibility.”
Westside is so proud of Chloe’s success on and off the court these last two years. We are excited about her remaining two years at Westside, and the future ahead after her 2018 graduation.
