Benjamin Church

Early College High School at Del State

Nomination Statement

“Benjamin Church is one of the most kind-hearted individuals I know. When his name is announced at a pep rally for his academic prowess, the school erupts in loud cheers of happiness for him. He has been at the top of the Class of 2022 at the Early College HS@DSU since his freshmen year. He has earned a 4.5738 GPA, and by the end of the year, will have earned 64 college credits from Delaware State University where he maintains a 4.0 GPA. He plans to attend there in the fall on a Presidential Scholarship.”

“As long as I can remember, my interests quickly flitted from one object to the next, never staying in one place. Once I wanted to go into the military, then work on spaceships, then become an environmental activist, and now I am interested in becoming a doctor. Academic success in school became a way to channel my variety of interests by succeeding in many different subjects, while also keeping my options open for the future to pursue my ever-changing goals.”
