“I love the Lord whole-heartedly and enjoy pursuing academic excellence.” That quote definitely describes the 2010 Valedictorian, Chelsea Brooke Mires.

 She lives in Orange with her parents, Gene and Felicia Mires, brother Devon and dog Darling Clementine. In the fall, she plans to attend LeTourneau University in Longview to obtain a psychology degree with a minor in Spanish. Her goal is to counsel young women who have suffered trauma or abuse. Many scholarships have been awarded to Chelsea, thus far totaling $108, 230. Chelsea has attended CCS since kindergarten and earned many awards. She participated in NHS, SLI, Chapel Committee, Varsity Tennis, Homecoming Committee, Math League, Science Fair, choir and a multitude of other school activities. She has one older brother, Blake, who also graduated from CCS. Her brother Devon also attends CCS in the fifth grade.

This year’s Salutatorian is Sarah Danielle Moseley. Sarah, also from Orange, lives with her parents, Jay and Mary Moseley. She has three older siblings, Andrew, Amanda, and Katy, all of whom graduated from CCS. Sarah isn’t sure about which college she will attend but has narrowed the choice down to Sam Houston or Lamar-Beaumont. She intends to pursue a degree in criminal justice with a minor in Spanish and dreams of a career as an FBI field agent. Sarah has attended CCS since K4, earned numerous awards and participated in many activities: basketball, track, cross-country, basketball (varsity captain), student council president, NHS, SLI, Homecoming Committee and Math League to name a few. Sarah’s advice to younger classmen, ”Step out of your comfort zone and try your hardest at everything you do because the next time you do it – it will be that much easier for you.”
