Spencer Boese, Amy Freeman, Cassidy Listak, Dakota Clayton, Allison Russell, James Vercellotti

Corn, OKLA — How do you get to Neverland?  “Second star to the right and straight on ‘til morning,” Peter Pan answered.  The CBA Student Council chose Peter Pan as their fall homecoming theme.  The scripture reference chosen by the council is Mark 5:36b, where Jesus says to the group, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”
The Neverland: Don’t Be Afraid— Just Believe homecoming king candidates are seniors James Vercellotti of Clinton, Dakota Clayton of Clinton, and Spencer Boese of Corn.  The queen candidates are Allison Russell, Cassidy Listak, and Amy Freeman, all of Clinton.  The kindergarten attendants are Seven Jones and Levi Bailey, who both attend the WOCS Clinton campus.
Join us Friday, September 16 at our first home game as the Crusaders host the Burns Flat/Dill City Eagles.  Several different campus groups will be hosting pregame activities for everyone at Crusader Park, starting at 6 pm.  We encourage all alumni to come out and support the Blue and White on Friday night.  Kick-off is at 7:30 pm.  The ceremony will follow the game.

Crusaders Volunteer at Regional Food Bank

CBA Students Package Corn At The Food Bank

Corn, OKLA –The Corn Bible Academy student body went to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma on Wednesday, May 11, as volunteers to help process food for the needy people of Oklahoma.  The Food Bank is located on the south side of Oklahoma City and processes donated food of all types to be shipped to local government agencies, churches, and other food distribution sites in over 50 of the 77 counties in Oklahoma.  Oklahoma is number five on the list of the “hungriest” states in the United States and one in six of Oklahoman’s children is undernourished.  The CBA student’s objective for the day was to package corn on the cob for distribution. The corn came to the food bank in bulk form, husked and frozen on large pallets. The students placed six ears into plastic bags and sealed them. The bags were labelled and packed into boxes for individuals. The boxes were organized on pallets and moved to a storage area before distribution to points throughout the state.  The service day was enjoyable for the student body as over 400 boxes of food were processed. That amount represents more than 10,000 meals for the needy people of Oklahoma.
