Andrew Olson, 16-year-old son of George and Penny Olson, recently returned from the Accelerated Christian Education/School of Tomorrow International Student Convention held at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.

Out of about 1,700 students from around the world, Andrew received a first place medal for memorizing the Book of John, third place in piano solo and fourth place in violin.

He is currently working at the Intervarsity Circle-Square Ranch Summer Camp in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Andrew also had the opportunity to meet the Honorable Andrew Sheer, leader of the Opposition Party of Canada, when Sheer presented Olson’s grandfather, Daniel Straza, a special medal for outstanding community contributions to the citizens of Saskatchewan.

Andrew will return to Crescent City this fall to continue his schooling.
