The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville held Senior Honors Day Monday, May 10, recognizing members of the Spring 2021 graduating class who achieved honor status and maintained a high-Grade Point Average (GPA). School officials state that from the worship set performed by graduating senior and class president John Lukas Campbell to opening remarks, the entire service was filled with worship, praise, and thanksgiving for what the Lord has done in the lives of the 2021 graduates.
Unlike previous years, Senior Honors Day was held in the BCF Wellness Center located in the middle of the main campus. Activities included an inspirational time of praise and worship led by the seniors, recognition of those who had earned high GPA honors, the presentation of the senior class project, and a challenging message delivered by BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen. The final award of the day was the Presidential Excellence in Preaching Award presented by Kinchen. Each semester, seniors work diligently on preparing a message in their preaching classes with the possibility of being selected as the recipient of the preaching award and the chance to preach in Chapel before their peers and faculty. Commended for his undeniable gift of preaching the Word of God, graduating senior Timothy Lanham was given the prestigious honor this semester.
Now that Senior Honors Day and Student Preaching are complete, all that is left on the calendar for these graduates is final exams and the Spring 2021 commencement ceremony that will take place outside at the “Grand Bobbie’s Pavilion” in Heritage Village at 10 a.m. Friday, May 21. Upon receiving their degrees and flipping their tassels, several will go on to seminary or graduate programs, while others have already accepted leadership positions in areas of ministry, missions, music, education, business, and psychology.
