Anna Sitzes is blessed with a curious mind.
The Liberty Christian senior’s interests include traveling, environmental issues and spirituality, and she believes that her time at LCS has allowed her to nurture those pursuits.
“Many of the staff members at Liberty have played a huge part in my life and have molded me into the person I am today,” Sitzes said. “Our spiritual life department is amazing and they love the students so much. I will definitely miss the community at Liberty when I graduate.”
Sitzes, 17, serves as the senior class treasurer, S.A.D.D. (Students Against Destructive Decisions) Club class representative and is the co-founder and Vice President of the Environmental club at Liberty Christian School.
The Liberty Christian senior said she has been with the club since its genesis.
“My friend Kate Kosub came up with the idea to start an environmental club at Liberty a few years ago and last year it became a reality,” Sitzes said. “We worked with the administration and finally got the club started. It was really fun to serve as vice president and to bring more awareness to our environmental footprint; and, what effects we have on our community and environment. We got to take a field trip to the Denton County Water Reclamation plant and it was so educational– along with fun to organize.”
Sitzes is also a worship leader at the school and is a member of the LCS choir.
She went on mission trips to Panama and the Dominican Republic during the past three years and traveled to Thailand with her school this summer.
The Bartonville teen said she has already decided what she would like to do for a career.
“Ever since second grade, I have wanted to be an elementary school teacher,” Sitzes said. “I absolutely love little kids, and have always had the desire to teach. All of my elementary school teachers at Liberty were amazing and have played a huge part in my plan to become a teacher.”
She said her desire to be a teacher was spawned by her mission trips– along with years spent at the Laity Lodge Youth Summer camp– and her experiences as a younger student at LCS.
Sitzes carries a 3.9 grade point average at Liberty Christian School.
