FULL CIRCLE: Rodney Ellis, ‘01

Rodney’s life is an amazing testimony of the lasting impact of an Restoration Academy education. It’s not just about the seven hours are in school, or even the total number of years. Sometimes the impact of investment is a planted seed—a seed that doesn’t grow to truly bear fruit for years. Rodney came to RA in 1998, and graduated in 2001. God ordained his steps and ultimately brought him back to Restoration Academy again in 2017…but this time as a parent of two elementary students. Now, an alumnus, legacy parent, and the school’s first-ever Resource Officer, Rodney is pouring back into the school that poured into him 20 years ago.
