Berean Student Selected As U.S. Marines All-American

Caleb Goertzen plays on the varsity football team at Berean.

Caleb Goertzen, a junior at the Berean Christian School, has been selected as a 2019 U.S. Marines Semper Fidelis All-American.

The U.S. Marine Corps Semper Fidelis All-American program recognizes a select few high school students who demonstrate an academic, physical and personal spirit of success in all that they set out to accomplish. These students are considered leaders in their school and community, as they serve in that capacity through team sports, active roles in community service and as a student leader in their school.

Goertzen was nominated by Berean’s head football coach Mario Jackson because he consistently displays these qualities in his life. Goertzen has maintained a high GPA throughout high school, plays on the varsity football team and varsity soccer team, is a member of student government, National Honor Society and the ACES Student Leadership organization.

In July, Goertzen and Jackson will travel to Washington, D.C. to participate in the Battles Won Academy, where they will join students and mentors from other states who have been selected. During this time, Goertzen will have the opportunity to take part in daily workouts, teambuilding events and network with speakers from various industries to be encouraged as he pursues his future goals.
