Sixteen students graduated from Heritage Academy's kindergarten class on May 23. Five of the graduating kindergarten students are the children of Heritage graduates. Before receiving their diplomas, the class presented a program titled “Busy Bees.” The children buzzed into the auditorium wearing bee costumes. Once onstage, they recited Bible verses and sang songs. The theme centered on positive characteristics - being thankful, being honest, etc. One song concluded with the reminder, “I don't have to wait until I'm grown up to be what Jesus wants me to be.” Jayne Becker, who started teaching kindergarten at Heritage in 1969 when the school opened, presented her students with their diplomas.

Heritage Academy capped off an unbeaten baseball season with a 10-5 win over Shalom Christian in the championship game of the Mason Dixon Christian Conference tournament on Monday at Grace Academy. “I just wanted to get guys on base and steal,” Heritage coach Jeff Kriner said. “I think our speed on the field was the biggest thing and that made the difference. Whenever Shalom had a pretty big inning, we answered back with one of our own. “This was our second straight tournament title and the fifth one for our three seniors, since they were in the eighth grade.” Those seniors - Collin Poyle, Bryce Nigh and Bubba Kriner - are the first three hitters in the order for Heritage (10-0)
