Gaston Christian School is proud to announce that we have 4 students selected to attend the 2024 Senator James S. Forrester’s Commissioners’ School of Excellence. The Commissioners’ School of Excellence is named in memory of James S. Forrester, a former state senator and Gaston County commissioner.

Commissioners’ School is a summer enrichment program open to current ninth-grade students (rising tenth graders) in Gaston County.  Now in its 38th year, the leadership development program offers students an opportunity to learn more about the Gaston community.

Each year, approximately 60 students are chosen for the program based on academic performance, extracurricular activities (school and community), leadership potential, self-motivation, and written expression.

Commissioners’ School challenges students to better understand themselves, life in Gaston County, and their roles as future leaders.  They participate in seminars, problem-solving activities, special events, and hands-on experiences as well as enjoy time with community leaders and guest speakers.  Lessons and activities concentrate on teamwork, communication skills, and community service.

Gaston Christian School has never had 4 candidates at one time selected to attend.  Congratulations to Leighton Bizzell, Kayla Mattera, Piper Riley, and Emerson Rushing!
