A student who can excel at Faith Lutheran is already above most average teenagers their age. This school is a college prep school with diverse electives. Students are expected to maintain honorable grades while competing in much harder courses.

At Faith, there are many students who take AP classes, but this special individual has a full load of them every year while keeping them no lower then an A. His name is Justin Chung; Justin has attended Faith for over seven years. At Faith Justin has received as high as a 4.5 GPA in his four high school years. Not to overlook other accomplished students, but most students with his grade point averages like his; don’t participate in anything at school.

“The accomplishment I am most proud of is winning the election for student body president. This makes me the most proud because of the rigor of not only public speaking to persuade voters, but having the approval to run by my student council’s advisor,” said Chung. “ Winning the approval of the student body to be appointed to the top position in the executive board places a smile on my face and is something that makes me very proud.” 

For Justin this is just the opposite, he does more after school clubs and activities then some students combined.

Justin has been involved in Faith Lutheran athletics every year since freshmen to his senior year. All four years Justin has played football for head coach Vernon Fox. Justin has played linebacker all four years. But this year he also got the opportunity to kick field goals and extra points. Not many people realize that football takes up more than just after school time. From about early April all the way to the start of November, football takes all of a players focus and attention. Not only the mandatory mini camp and trips to Colorado for full, padded camps. But football players are required to lift over 90 percent of the summer days. Justin did this also while completing an internship this summer, under Dr. Schifini, who is a pain management specialist in anesthesiology. Justin wishes to have this future job one day and is making connections early.

As Justin transitioned from junior to senior year, he took the ACT and SAT, scoring in the 90 percentile for both. Justin has applied to over 11 colleges and 3 Ivy League schools. While this long admission process takes place, he has also been chosen from a select group to try out for the BD-SM program at UNR. Only the best students from across the country try out or even get recognized for these types of programs.

“My diligence and leadership skills with ability to be open-minded have allowed me to succeed in every aspect of my life. Numerous different mentors have taught me valuable characteristics in order to allow me to find success. My football coaches as well as my student leadership advisor continually give me lessons such towards proper interaction and etiquette. Throughout my life, these skills have been applicable in an ambiguous manner.” said Chung.

One might say that this is a full load, but he isn`t done yet. Justin Chung is also our student body president. Justin is apart of our student council. Every month, he meets with other school presidents throughout Clark County. This shows that Justin is respected and liked across campus to be voted in as student body president.

Involved in other activities, Justin is apart of National honors society, key club, and DECA. All tree require hours of hard work and effort. The most major academy he is apart of is STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

“Justin is a very good student and dedicated to his studies. Justin wants to go into the medical field and should focus on that. When Justin is in STEM, he has a friendly face that students know well.” said Mrs. Emily Blank, head of the STEM Program.

Justin has to graduate with over ten math and science credits. Meaning he has to maintain an A in over ten math and science classes over four years. Two more than what is required an average Faith student to have. A quote that Justin lives by is “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” Wayne Gretzky’s quote reminds him that when a unique opportunity arrives, there should be no hesitation

A very bright future is ahead of Justin Chung, all of these accolades may sound great but not many would realize all of these things that Justin does. He is a kind and humble student who is a great example for future students not just here at Faith, but everywhere.
