Rachael Hill

 "God, who foresaw your tribulation, has specially armed you to go through it, not without pain but without stain." - C.S. Lewis


  A 2006 graduate, Rachael Hill was killed in the tragic events at Virginia Tech in April of 2007. Her legacy still lives on at Grove Christian School.

Her leadership, friendship and commitment to living for Christ exemplified the Christian principles taught and encouraged at our school. Even her senior yearbook quote (above) can still offer comfort to those who knew and loved her.

Our community lost one of its brightest prospects, but the Lord continues to be glorified through the daughter of the King that she is, the life that she lived, and the impact Rachael had on others in the name of Jesus Christ. We continue to remember and pray for the families, friends, and loved ones involved in this tragedy.

This bench was donated by the classes of 2006 and 2007 in memory of Rachael Hill.


"Our hope is that God will use this to turn more people toward Him rather than away from Him. That was Rachael's prayer, and so that is our prayer."

— Dr. Mark Becton
