Standout Students: Twins Excel at Maranatha Christian Academy
Maranatha Christian Academy senior Calahan Hall and her sister, Amia Hall, share an unbreakable bond.
“We’re ready to try new things and we’re both really like, adventurous,” Calahan said.
“She has some strengths that I don’t and vice versa,” said Amia. “And I think it’s nice to balance each other out in some ways.”
The twins are exceptional students. Both have 4.4 GPAs and participate in a long list of activities.
“I’m a member of NHS (National Honor Society), I lead daily bread, which is basically like a student discussion, bible studies,” said Amia.
“I’m the current vice president of National Honor Society,” said Calahan. “I’m also the vice president of high school student council.”
The academic stars are taking college courses in addition to their high school classes, and both are also on their high school golf team.
“I love to be involved in many different things,” said Calahan.
Calahan is good at juggling a lot of activities. Four years ago, she started her own photography company.
“I think I have to be really intentional about prioritizing rest,” Calahan said. “And not letting all of my workload and activities get in the way other of things that I know matter.”
Amia, meanwhile, works as a paralegal for her father. In the future, she wants to assist victims of human trafficking.
“It’s just such a massive issue,” Amia said. “There’s just not enough people doing things about it.”
Helping to get the kindergartners in shape is also one of Amia’s passions.
The extremely talented students contribute their motivation and success to their faith.
“That I’m able to serve people, and I’m doing what I’m doing not for other people, but for God,” said Calahan.
“My faith is the most important thing to me,” said Amia.
