Rising Senior Sarah Bennet Smith Takes Her Spiritual Journey to the Rockies

In June, Sarah Bennett Smith ’20 and her brother, Jim, an incoming freshman with the Class of 2023, deepened their spiritual lives in the Rockies. Traveling with their church youth group from Merigold, Mississippi, they participated in a high school youth ministries conference at the YMCA of the Rockies family camp, where they enjoyed classes and group worship, hiking in Estes Park and communing with nature and wildlife of all sizes—from elk to chipmunks. Sarah Bennett reports that she reached the highest point in the Rockies, made incredible new friends, and was happy to represent her VES Bishop family!
