"My participation in Sunday Church School has given me the opportunity to grow and absorb new information taught in classes and in the Divine Liturgy. I have learned lessons from the Gospel and have not been moved away from them. Being brought up in the Church, and faithfully serving God, has given me the background in our faith and the courage to endure life's challenges. In the years to come, I hope to spread and teach God's message to children and watch them grow and flourish in our Orthodox faith just as I have, all while living our faith as an example for them."

In his personal statement, Noah wrote:
"What motivated me to remain a student of religious education is my passion and love for my faith in Christ. Through the teachings of my Sunday School teachers, priests and advisors, my faith has increasingly gotten stronger throughout my life. My participation in Sunday School has taught me to continue reading the Bible and to refer to it always. The discussions in my High School Sunday School were very intriguing and so fresh in my mind that I know I will continue my strong faith in the Lord. I know my faith will get me through anything and I hope I can help others too. What I've learned will be with me always."
