New Student Spotlight: Derek Pitts

This week’s new student spotlight is on Derek Pitts in the tenth grade this year. He joins us from Shawnee Schools. He says that the difference between the two schools is the attitude of the people. So far he is loving Temple, and his favorite subject in school this year is geometry. His favorite song is called “Tempo” by Kevin Burgess or KB. When asked about his favorite thing about Temple is he says, “It feels good to be at TCS. Everyone is really accepting of me, and I already have a favorite teacher, Mr. Kline”.

Pitts’ favorite Bible verse is John 14:21 because it tells us that only if we have the desire to keep God’s commands then we love him, and he doesn’t feel all Christians do that. John 14:12 says, “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” Derek currently has one dog and two cats that he enjoys playing with.  His favorite movie is Courageous, and his favorite thing about school is Chapel.
