Local Christian Student Highlights

Hunter Boan
Classification: Pre-Kindergartner
Early Childhood Enrichment Center

Hunter is 5-years-old and has been attending Katy’s Early Childhood Enrichment Center for 3 years. He will be starting Kindergarten in the fall at Franz Elementary. He is a wonderful big brother to his 2 year-old-sister, Harley, and enjoys showing her everything he knows. Hunter is a very active boy and enjoys outside activities at the park. He also plays soccer and baseball. His family are big Texans fans and love the watch football games and eat popcorn. He is also is very much into writing and learning about animals. In fact, one of his best friends is the family pet, Cooper the cat.  

Hunter loves going to church on Sundays and attends Crosspoint on Westgreen. Every week he reminds his mommy about going to church. Hunter loves telling her and Harley that Jesus is everywhere and points to the sky to explain where God lives. During Christmas, his favorite activity is setting up the little barn with Mary, the wise men, the animals and of course, baby Jesus in the manger. 

Hunter is just learning about the Bible and always recites his favorite prayer before dinner: “God is great, God is good, let us thank Him for our food, Amen.” Through this brotherly example his little sister is catching on and enjoys saying the prayer with him (which makes their mother very proud).


Chris Haier
Classification: Sophomore
Faith West Academy

Starting something new is always an adventure and that has really proven true for Chris Haier, 16, of Katy.  He joined the FFA because he has a love for the outdoors, wildlife, hunting, and fishing.  He had never raised cattle, but he thought it would be fun.  So he entered the calf scramble at the Houston, Ft. Worth, and Austin rodeos.  He used some of the skills that he had learned in football (tackling), weight lifting (the strength to wrestle a 240 pound calf to the ground), and agility training (to be able to react quickly to the calf’s moves) to be among the winners at all three rodeos. 

Chris enjoys wake boarding and dirt biking (KTM 250cc), but football remains his favorite sport.  His favorite music is country (Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton).

Chris is a member of Kingsland Baptist Church. He reads the Bible daily and his favorite Bible verses are found in Galatians 3:23-29 and Joshua 1:9 (‘have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”).

After high school Chris would like to go to Texas A&M or Auburn to study to be a civil engineer.


Samuel Mote
Classification: Senior
Faith West Academy

Samuel Mote, Valedictorian of the FWA Class of 2012, has plans to attend Texas A&M to major in electrical engineering.  But his plans don’t stop there.  He said of his ambition; “Honestly, most of my ultimate goals are based in the success of the U.S. Military.  I plan and hope to design weapons, artillery, or mechanics that make the life of a soldier safer.  Safer soldiers come from stronger armies, and stronger armies are the backbone of any powerful nation.”

Some of his recent accomplishments and memberships are: Class of 2012 Valedictorian (4.74 GPA); National Merit Scholarship Finalist; awarded 1st place for Math and 2nd place for Number Sense at the recent TAPPS District competition; a member of Mu Alpha Theta, National Honor Society, ComedySportz team; and technical support for the youth ministries at Second Baptist.

Samuel is a member of Second Baptist Church and his favorite Bible verse is II Samuel 22:2-3, “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,   my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior— from violent people you save me”.
