Special to The Indy

Each year Prattville Christian Academy presents a Barnabas Award to the male and a Tabitha Award to the female student who exemplifies the best servant attitude.

The certificates read, "For encouragement, service, and thoughtfulness toward others." The awards are named for (female) Tabitha and (male) Barnabas, who were New Testament characters known for their service to others. The 2014 female winner is PCA junior Lauren Crosby, and the male winner is senior Luke DeMarco (pictured here with PCA Principal Ron Mitchell). Like Barnabas, which means "Son of Encouragement," they are encouragers of others, both students and faculty. Like Tabitha, they seek ways to help others in selfless service. This is not about "service hours" done for a Bible class, but the day to day encouragement and service, done with no fanfare or credit, that help to make the lives of those around them better.

PCA faculty and staff submit nominations, and selections are made by a faculty committee. Congratulations Lauren and Luke!
