Senior Spotlight – Julia Jennings

Favorite Subject: Art

Senior Thesis Statement: All people, but especially Christians, need to stop their exploitation of creation and do what they can to reverse and reduce the harmful effects of this exploitation because it is one of their God-given responsibilities. 

Brief Description of Senior Thesis: Do Christians have a certain responsibility to be aware of the state of our habitat and care for it? Creation belongs to God, therefore Christians should not treat it as a resource at their disposal. Today, creation is being recklessly exploited, and as a result certain areas of the world will soon began to suffer the consequences. Christians need to become more active in the effort to counteract this environmental crisis because not only did God give his people dominion over nature, but he also called them to care for their neighbors. 

College Choice OR how you plan to spend next year? I plan to attend Baylor University to study health sciences on the Pre-Dental track 

What advice or encouragement would you give to younger students at Westminster?Savor you time in high school because it goes by much faster than you may think.  

Please share a funny memory or highlight from your time at Westminster:
One of my favorite memories was the first day of senior year when we all got to have a parade around the parking lot after our senior breakfast. 

Favorite Bible Verse: “God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” Gen 1:28

Prayer Request: Please pray that I will continue to make the decisions God wants for me throughout my college education, and beyond.
