Everest Academy’s students strive to live the school’s motto of Semper Altius in all areas of their lives. In addition to the extra-curriculars offered through Everest, many Everest students achieve highly in activities with other organizations in our community.
Everest fourth-grade student Benjamin Luginski swims with the Oakland Live Y’ers (OLY). Benjamin continued his strong start to the 2018-19 winter swim season recently in Indianapolis. He competed against some to the top swimmers in the Midwest and finished in the top five of overall points earned in the Boys’ 10U group. Benjamin also qualified for additional events at the 2019 Short Course State Championships in March, bringing his total to 8 events of the 11 events he is eligible to swim in. Even more exciting, Benjamin qualified for the NCSA National Swimming Championships in Orlando by posting a time of 28.76 seconds in the 50-yard Freestyle. Good luck on the rest of the season and keep up the good work!
