Student of the Quarter Abby DeKoekkoekAbby DeKoekkoek has been chosen as the Student of the Quarter for the 2nd quarter of 2013-2014 by the faculty of Shoreline Christian School. The emphasis second quarter was on leadership. Abby is characterized by the faculty as someone who “feels at home at Shoreline Christian School and cares about what happens around here. Her positive attitude about this school is infectious. She was elected Vice President of Student Council and is faithful with her peers and teachers and leads by example in the classroom, in sports and in music.

Her leadership shows through her “follow me and never give up” attitude and her servant heart shows through the many areas where she has volunteered.

Some of Abby’s favorite Shoreline Christian memories have been participating at the state competitions in three sports and “basically hanging out with the people at breaks and lunches.”
