Liberty grad has heart for refugees

Gracie Meek

Gracie Meek believes people should practice what they preach.

The Liberty Christian alum graduated in May and is headed to Cornell University where she plans to major in Architecture as part of a five-year program that will allow her study abroad in Italy for a semester.

“I want to combine my love of the arts and sciences in the architecture field,” Meek said. “I hope to continue pursuing the creative process while designing appropriate and useful housing for refugees.”

Meek said her real passion is doing her part to ensure that refugees and the needy and disenfranchised are shown respect as human beings and receive fair treatment.

“Every minute, there are 24 people displaced from their homes,” Meek said. “There are refugees from all around the world, and it’s my obligation as a Christian, to ensure safety, fairness, and equality to everyone.”

Meek was a member of the National Honor Society, varsity cheer, a TAPPS State Champion Art Student, Liberty Mandarin Club President and the Liberty Young Democrats Club Founder during her time at LCS.

“Being involved in diverse activities at school gave me the opportunity to have many groups of friends with all kinds of interests,” Meek said. “I am inspired daily by my friends who are gifted academically, artistically, and athletically.  We laughed, cried, learned, and grew with each other.”

Meek said that her time at Liberty Christian School is something she will reflect on with great fondness because she believes her Alma Mater genuinely tries to help as many people as possible.

“Liberty has a heart for serving not only the average or gifted student, but also those students diagnosed with a broad spectrum of learning differences,” Meek said. “This is not typical in most private schools.  I admire Liberty’s leadership for their inclusiveness.  It can’t be all things to all people, but I’ve seen their program grow to reach as many students as they can.”
