Melissa Tenant began homeschooling her three boys a year ago when her oldest son, Brice, was having difficulties at school. "I have learned more about who they are as different individuals," she said. "Not that I thought they were alike, but the depth of what they learn at different ages."
Tenant pokes at her youngest son, Seth, as he struggles to work his way through a geometry assignment. "When I think of them completing the same work at school [in the past], I don't think it was very effective," Tenant said. "Lukas can sit and do whatever you tell him and his mission is to get it done, but Brice is not like that and needs help."
Lukas Tenant explains his frustration working on pronouns when he wants to go outside. "I'm always figuring out how to motivate them in a positive way so that school is a get to instead of have to do," Melissa Tenant said. "I haven't found the perfect way, but sometimes I say 'If you get this done we can go outside.'"

Daniel Chaid, senior, winning against the Pittsburgh player during the ACC Championship. Chaid has a tattoo on his arm of a samurai named Miyamoto Musashi. "The main back story of my tattoo is that my god father was a wrestler named Dave Schultz. Dave was an Olympic Champion wrestler who was murdered in 1996 by the heir to a chemical fortune John DuPont. After Daves murder, a wrestling club was formed in his honor by his wife Nancy. Dave looked at musashi while wrestling as a signicant role model and based some of his life and approach to wrestling off of his teachings. As a result of this the symbol for the wrestling club was the figure of Mushasi that I have tattooed on my arm. While I didn't personally know Dave, he died when I was 2, I grew up with his family Nancy and his two kids Danielle and Zander who are my non-blood related family. I spent much of my childhood traveling with the Dave Shultz wrestling club. That's essentially the basis for my tattoo."
Throughout Yoo’s life he has seen substantial growth in every ministry he’s been a part of. His first youth group went from 30 to 100. His bible study he started Freshman year at University of Florida went from four to 75. The church in Sanford, Florida he was a youth pastor at went from three to 100. The children’s ministry in Raleigh went from 15 to 500. But it’s more than the numbers to Yoo when he looks at the life of Jesus. He said, “It’s about caring for the least of these.” Yoo brings his excitement and passion to all areas of his life: home, business, church, relationships. “ Lawrence just does everything,” Mikhail said. “He always says ‘prayer is God’s appointed means to enact his will’ and he encourages us to remember that it’s God’s work, but we get to be a part of it.”
