Floral Crest School, in partnership with Southern Adventist University’s Partners For Eternity (PFE) grant program, has the opportunity to offer unique tuition assistance to our students. Through this service-oriented scholarship program, our participating students are paired with elderly adults in our community in a mutually-beneficial way.
Students in the PFE program, along with their parents, bring joy to the lives of senior citizens through fun activities such as visiting, reading, and playing games. When appropriate, they may also provide light housework. As the young people build generational bridges and learn the value of service, they also benefit from the wisdom and mentorship of the older adults. In the process, their time together helps finance the student’s Christian education.
In April 2017 students and parents took a trip to Nashville TN for a SDA Church history trip. They also learned about the capital of TN and visited several museums.
Students once again participated in the NGB in January 2017 and Morgan took the state semi-finalist test. She qualified again to compete in state of AL contest. Congrats Morgan two years in a row.
