CBA Senior Selected for Academic All State

Corn, OKLA — Senior Wesley Javorsky has been selected for the all-state Academic team. He will join 35 other seniors chosen from over 350 Oklahoma schools of all classes to compete in an all-state tournament and be honored at an evening banquet on Saturday, the 25th of April. Selection of all-state seniors is contingent on many factors including the years spent as team captain and as team MVP, individual and team points scored this year, and state tournaments attended.
Academic team coach, Joyce Creed, congratulates Wesley on this achievement and appreciates his dedication to the academic team, his making time for practices and competitions while maintaining a very busy schedule in athletics, music, and as president of the student council.
Since the CBA academic was established in 1996, only one other student, Carolyn Tillery in 2005, has attained the All-state team. Other students Aaron Thiessen, 1998, Josh Richardson, Ronnie Pauls, 1999, Rachael Foote, 2003, and Caleb Creed, 2004 have achieved honorable mention as one of the second group of 36 selected from the nominees.
The mission statement of the CBA academic team, adopted in 2000, is as follows:
“We will strive to glorify God by serving Him faithfully in all that we do.  We will seek after wisdom, refine our knowledge, and renew our minds.  We will show God’s love to everyone in order to be witnesses for Him.”
We are honored to have Wesley Javorsky represent The Corn Bible Academy Academic team in the All State Games this year.

JH Academic Team Advances to State Contest

Corn, OKLA — Saturday, March 7th was an exciting day for the CBA junior high academic team as they traveled to Bethel Acres to compete with eleven other teams for the OJABA class C regional title. Under OJABA rules, all private schools must compete in the next-to largest class (schools of 100 to 2299 average daily attendance), so we were able to meet schools we usually don’t encounter in academic meets. Our first match was against Bethel Acres A. We scored 300 to their 200 points and moved on to meet Tecumseh. This match proved to be our most difficult. Behind by ten points at the end of the first quarter, the Tecumseh team chose another category for their sixty-second round leaving the category “Bible books” for the CBA team. Seeing Bible questions at an academic team match is an increasingly rare phenomenon, but an entire sixty-second round was too good to pass up. CBA aced the round, scoring 100 points in sixty seconds. The team was asked to answer such questions as: Which book in the Bible begins with a genealogical list? And which New Testament book records the parable of the Prodigal Son? That round put the Crusaders ahead of Tecumseh. From there it was a very close race to the finish, with the Crusaders ending the very tense game at 270 to the Tecumseh team’s 260.After that CBA defeated the Bethel Acres B team 300 to 230, only to have to wait two more rounds for Bethel Acres B to re-emerge from the loser’s bracket and play them again, beating them a second time 320-240, thus claiming the championship. Over the course of the day eighth-graders worked well as a team. Drew Geisler, the team captain scored 90 points, Kim Javorsky claimed 100 points, Autumn Foster added 120, and Chant Collins 240 points. All the team members contributed additional points in the sixty second rounds. McKenna Thompson, our one seventh-grade member, did not play this time, but filled a vital role as time keeper/score-keeper. Joyce Creed, CBA academic coach, would like to thank each member of the team for their dedication and enthusiasm.
For the first time ever, CBA will be attending the OJABA state meet at OU next month.

Crusaders Place at Engineering Fair

Corn, OKLA — The Oklahoma Engineering Foundation sponsored the Oklahoma Engineering Fair at the Omniplex on March 3.  CBA took 65 students to the fair with the projects they have been working on recently.  The Crusaders performed well with several students placing in the top three. Dakota Brewer and Dakota Clayton, both from Clinton won first place in the Eiffel Tower Contest with a tower of 19 3/8” tall built from straws which can support a 3’ long 2×4 piece of lumber. Michael Boese of Corn and Mitchell Graf of Colony placed third in the Rubber Band Powered Vehicle Contest when their car coasted 31’ 4.5”.  The first place winner’s car went a distance of 36’ 10”. The Bridge Building Contest is where students build toothpick bridges that are tested for support by hanging weight from an eyebolt fastened to the center of the deck.  Both Abby Foster of Thomas and Morgan Potter of Canute built strong bridges with Abby’s holding 130 lbs., placing second and Morgan’s holding 125 lbs., placing third.  The first place bridge carried a whopping 440 lbs.! Last but not least, Katherine Bose, Mikayla Nelson, both of Clinton; Olivia Estes of Elk City;  and Ashli Bradford of Weatherford placed first in the Wacky Wonder Works Contest, in which teams designed and built Rube Goldberg machines that erased a chalkboard.  Katherine Bose said, “If insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, then you have to be a little insane when building a wacky wonder works [project] because each time you run your machine, something different can happen; it’s nearly impossible to have something that’s 100% foolproof.”

CBA Junior Play & Senior Supper March 6

Corn, OKLA — For the six Porter children, growing up in a minister’s family has tribulations that most children escape. Mr. and Mrs. Porter (Levi McAbee and Hannah Hays) try to give their children in a normal raising without the stigma of being preacher’s children. But, they can’t roller skate in public because some of the parishioners object, and the boys cannot protect their cotton patch from a gang of “toughs” because their father opposes fighting. The Smith sisters, (Marissa Graf and Madeline Mann) daughters of the richest parishioners, try to make the preacher’s sons, Raybon (Ruben Marrufo) and Cecil (Rusty Epp) date them—or else! Katy Porter, (Katrina Wichert) a photography enthusiast, even helps foil some bank robbing bandits. The troublemaker next door, Miss Jonas (played by Jennifer Friesen), even objects to frail Alyene (Madison Musick) reciting poems by Shakespeare. Weaving through all this is a delightful boy/girl complication in which two brothers want to date the same girl, Helen Ludlow (senior, Cassie Oliver) while their sister Jeanette (Tiffani Isaac) is being courted by a would-be-musician. The eldest of the Porter children, Hugh (or Denton Drinnon), sweeps in from college to save the day when things get in a pickle. Throw in a buzzard-loping, circus-loving friend, Jeffery Cole (or Trevor Foster), who also happens to be a preacher’s kid and a couple just grateful to see the preacher (Mason Folsom and Christina Dowell) and laughter will ensue.
Join the juniors of Corn Bible Academy as they present Papa Was a Preacher on March 5 at 1pm and March 6 at 1pm and 7pm. A Hawaiian Luau meal will be prepared by the senior class from 5-6:30pm on March 6.
