Kendall Matthews Elected Student Council President


FBCA Senior Feels A Call To Serve

Fort Bend Christian Academy senior Kendall Matthews has been involved in student council since she was in the seventh grade.

“Jesus calls us to serve,” she said. “I truly believe that student council is the best way I can serve Fort Bend Christian Academy.”

Kendall enjoys planning and being involved in student activities, and her campaign platform focused on promoting school unity.

“Without unity, there is disjunction among grades which can cause issues, especially in setting goals for our student body as a whole,” she said. “As president, I hope to plan student activities that will unite the grades and break the barrier between the upperclassmen and underclassmen that is so prevalent in most schools. Not only this, but I will also make an effort to form a relationship between the high school, middle school and elementary school.”

Government, with Mr. Williams, is Kendall’s favorite class. The senior said government class is very fun, especially with the upcoming election.

“Through government, I can truly learn how life will work when I leave high school and how I can make a difference,” she said.

In addition to student council, Kendall is cheer captain and president of National English Honor Society. She is also a member of NHS, Rho Kappa, Mu Alpha Theta, Interact Club and Student Leadership Community.

Wes Pogue, FBCA Chaplain, described Kendall as an avid student dedicated to a job well-done.

“She is determined and intentional in everything she does,” Pogue said. “Kendall is also a compassionate young lady who desires to influence others through leadership and care as she seeks to lift them up in her acts of service.”

Kendall said her favorite aspect of Fort Bend Christian Academy is that every time she comes to school, it is like coming home to family.

“Everyone knows everyone, and it’s so great to have that perpetual support system,” she said. “Not only that, but I love being surrounded by friends who love the Lord just as much as I do, and it’s hard to find that in other places.”

After graduation, Kendall plans to attend Vanderbilt University or the University of Texas to double major in political science and English.
