Micah 6:8 Leaders
"He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you?
To do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God."
Welcome to our Micah 6:8 Leaders campaign!
Throughout the fall semester, we will be featuring some of SSCA's Micah 6:8 Leaders who are in Grades 6-12 and who are SSCA Alumni. Read their stories below to learn more about our students and the SSCA community. These stories will be featured on our social media outlets (Instagram and Facebook) and will be published in our Weekly Warrior Newsletter. Keep on the lookout for a new story every week on Micah Monday!
What is a Micah 6:8 Leader?
A Micah 6:8 Leader is someone who impacts their community by showing others what it means to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly. They are not conformed by the things of this world or want to exalt themselves above others. Instead, they show what true leadership looks like by serving others and exalting God above all else.
Micah 6:8 Student Leaders
Chase Bowdre - Grade 9
Chase has been at SSCA since the 5th grade, “a great leader is someone who does the right thing while in a tough situation and while under pressure”. Chase is making a difference in her community by showing others that they should work hard and persevere in any circumstance. She is currently in Honors English, Honors Math, and has done competitive dance since she was 3 years old. Competitive dance has taught Chase the significance of working in a team and that “when you fall down, you must get back up and work through the stressful situations. You don’t just preserve for yourself, but you also do it for your team”. While at SSCA, Chase has learned how to humble herself and to be kind to others, even when it is difficult. SSCA has also helped Chase grow in her relationship with God and taught her how to become a strong leader.
Meet Jack Dagley - Grade 8
Jack has been at South Shore Christian Academy for 11 years. According to Jack, “a great leader is someone who looks out for everyone they are leading. They also try to do new things and to help others”. Jack is making a difference in his community by setting a good example for others by doing well academically and by being a part of many clubs. He is currently in Theater and Esports. While in Theater last year, he was in the Alfred Hitchcock play and played an FBI agent. At first, Jack was disappointed since this role wasn’t a speaking role. However, Jack stuck with it and ended up loving the role by the end of the play. “I have learned that once you start doing something to stay committed and to try your hardest, even when you don’t want to”. Jack is excited to be a part of Theater again for this year!
Meet Elizabeth Keenan - Grade 7
Elizabeth has been attending SSCA for 4 years. According to Elizabeth, "a great leader is someone who listens to others, won’t make fake promises, and inspires others."

While in Girl Scouts, Elizabeth helps her community by picking up trash and cleaning up the side of the highway. At SSCA, she has learned to be kind to everyone, even when it is difficult. Elizabeth has also learned to help others no matter what.
