In the fall of 2010, Skye Moody, then Skye Taylor, set off for a grand adventure at The Ohio State University. One of the largest schools in the United States, Moody found herself thrust into a world of different perspectives, thinking and experiences. What can be an overwhelming transition for many was instead a welcome challenge: Listen. Engage. Land on the truth.
“I thrived in the learning environment,” Moody said. “College was challenging, absolutely, but I deeply enjoyed my time learning as much as I could.”
This enjoyment of learning she credits to her time as a Covenant School student, from which she attended all the way from kindergarten through graduation. Skye now sits in an office in San Antonio, TX, working as the Nestle Account Manager at H-E-B, one of the nation’s largest private companies. She oversees the company’s ice cream sales. Skye started at Nestle right after her college graduation in 2014. Although she is one of the youngest on her team, both in age and experience, she is also one of the most advanced, owing much of her success to her Covenant education that set her apart from her peers.
“I am able to consume, organize and disseminate information,” Moody said. “So much of my job relies on information, and the sharing of information in an effective and persuasive manner. To the tune of millions of dollars, I am the pivot point between two large companies.”
While Moody is grateful for outstanding performance reviews and career advancement, the influence of Covenant has impacted her more personally as well.
“Because of my education at Covenant I was given the resources I needed and the skills I needed to speak truth. Trough critical thinking skills and the ability to question the world around me, while also staying grounded in truth, I was able to establish a love relationship with the creator of the universe.”
Skye and her husband, David Moody, reside in San Antonio, TX, and hope to provide their future children with the same type of education Skye received at Covenant.
“Covenant was absolutely life-changing in its ability to teach me to take all the different things I’m hearing from the world, and establish reality, and I hope to gift that to my children,” Moody explained.
Skye is thankful to her own parents for the investment they made in her education at Covenant, which she says is priceless, because of the multitude of opportunities afforded to her because of her advanced skills in communication and critical thinking.
“Classical education, to my knowledge of it, is likely one of the most rigorous curriculums you will find. Though it can be difficult and strenuous, that is an investment that will pay dividends for the rest of their lives, and it’s absolutely worth it. I could not put a price on how much my parents were able to invest in my education, because it has been so beneficial to me.”
The lessons she learned in her thirteen years at Covenant School are fundamental, and the memories are ones she cherishes.
“Not to mention, when a bunch of Covenant School kids get together, we can still sing all the songs.”
