We are blessed when we have alumni visit and share their success stories.

Since colleges’ semester ends before we finish in high school, we often receive alumni visits.  The most recent visit was from David Weinbill.

David joined the Army National Guard after high school and has enjoyed world travel to Eastern Europe, but has also taken advantage of a wonderful opportunity.  He is a student at Sam Houston State University and is attending on a ROTC scholarship.  The ROTC scholarship pays 100 percent of tuition, books and provides a living allowance as well.  Of course, there is an obligation to enter military service after graduation as a Second Lieutenant.

David is succeeding academically at the university and credits his time at Willow Bend Academy with teaching him to set goals, study independently, and to manage his time. These skills are not common among his classmates. David finds himself teaching his classmates these academic life skills.
