2019 Spring Athletic Awards

Gilbert Christian High School

Gilbert Christians Schools is committed to the pursuit of excellence in the name of Christ for the glory of God.  Our varsity athletes are marked by that pursuit of excellence for the rest of their lives. The word athlete comes from a word for a competitor.  Whether they are on the court, the field, in the water, on the green, or on the track GCS athletes give their all to compete and should be recognized for their accomplishments.  As the apostle, Paul wrote, “I press on for the prize of the upward call in Christ”.

Margie Miller Memorial Scholarship

It is a special blessing to have our lives enriched by a woman of faith who spreads a contagious love for God among His people. Margie Miller loved the Lord and was a blessing to Gilbert Christian Schools.  

Mrs. Miller’s courageous fight against cancer inspired us all.  Margie’s home going to her God proclaims to all of us the power of our crucified and risen Lord Jesus Christ to keep each and every one of His promises.

Margie was an athlete, competing throughout high school and college as a cheerleader.  She continued to cheer loudly from the stands as a mom and as a fan at GCS events.

The Athletic Department of Gilbert Christian Schools has selected two senior female athletes who exemplify the faith, fight, love, and joy of the Margie Miller Memorial Scholarship.
