As part of the discussion, they discussed how well the basic school was doing and all the awards they were winning. Joseph suggested that with how well the basic school was doing, it was important that it was extended to the high school level.

Ray thought it was a good idea, but suggested that it was only possible if Joseph was willing to move back home and get it started. Little did they both know that that little discussion would snowball into Sonrise Christian High School as we know it today.
