Only a few Fall Convocation awards were given out and once again LFP students were well represented for their scholastic and leadership efforts.  Congratulations to Senior Dylan Byrne and Patience Ackerman for winning the Barnabas Servant Leadership Award.  Sophomore (and track and field standout) Kierra Zack received the Sophomore Scholars Award as one of only a handful of students that achieved a perfect 4.0 GPA in her first year at Eastern

We were also honored to hear Joshua Carson (LFP Alumnus) speak at Fall Convocation representing Palmer Seminar (as a current seminary student) with a thoughtful address to his peers.  Josh Carson, Moderator of the PTS Student Assembly at Palmer spoke again at the Palmer Theological Seminary (PTS) Dedication Chapel on September 14th, 2016.  You can see his speech here (found at the 20:20 mark)
