Lauren Huck’s Story
Lauren with SCISA President Kaia Thomson
Hey y’all! My name is Lauren Hucks, and I’m a sophomore here at Florence Christian. I’ve had the blessing of attending FCS my whole life. Florence Christian has given me many opportunities that I believe I would not receive anywhere else. I’ve formed so many strong relationships with friends, teammates, teachers, and coaches. Nothing is better than knowing that I am surrounded by people that I can turn to when I need something, whether it is prayers, encouragement, or advice.
I’ve played tennis for FCS for the past two years, and there is no sport I would rather play. The tennis team is one big family filled with some of the most inspirational, caring, and Christ-centered girls that never hesitate to pray for anything going on in my life. They are always there for me. I was on the FCS cheer squad my seventh and eighth grade year. Being cheer captain my eighth grade year is something I strived for, worked hard for, and prayed that I would have the opportunity to be one. Leading the squad taught me how important it is to have integrity, to be open-minded, patient, and understanding in order for a team to work well together.

Being a leader goes further than sports. Leadership, for me, also falls into student government. I have served on student government for two years. During my freshman year, I served as class treasurer, and now I currently serve as the sophomore class president. These two years I have been able to work with other people throughout my school and community doing outreach projects. FCS student government serves in a variety of school and community projects including: FBT yearly food drive, Miracle League, a baseball program for children and adults with disabilities, and FCS’ yearly homecoming floats. With 2020 being such an unpredictable year, our sophomore class student government is looking for ways to give back to our community.
God has recently blessed me with the opportunity to be appointed and serve as the Corresponding Secretary on the South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA) board. The SCISA student government board exercises leadership, participates in all SCISA events, and works to make SCISA better. As Corresponding Secretary, I will assist and work with the SCISA President (FCS Senior Kaia Thomson).
