Daniel Bolton
2010 SCA Alumnus

SCA is always happy to hear from its alumni and their successes in college and beyond. It is great to hear how God is using Daniel at Liberty University. He received the Strategically Serving Award, which is the highest award given to Spiritual Life Director at Liberty, He was also selected to be in the VIP section during Mitt Romney’s commencement address at Liberty University. This summer Daniel will be doing an internship with Senator Jim DeMint. Daniel also writes as a Yahoo! contributor where he has submitted many articles
especially relevant to young adults. Daniel says, “My goal is to publish culturally relevant articles that everyone can read and understand. I do not strictly stay on politics and religion but like to branch
out and cover social media, literature, and sports.” SCA is so proud of Daniel and his leadership at Liberty University!
Michael Miller, associate director, states, “This Spiritual Life Director is one of the most strategic leaders his Resident Advisor has ever had. At the beginning of the year he took time to write every guys’ parents a
letter thanking them for allowing their son to be on the dorm. He is always going out of his way to make guys feel encouraged and loved. He recently typed up the entire Resident Advisor Manual and made it into an interactive iBook. He has blessed his Resident Advisor and his wife multiple times with cookies, gifts, etc. This SLD has gone and done secret jobs at Associate Director’s homes, just to bless them without
them knowing. Because of his humility and true servant’s heart, this SLD will be frustrated and embarrassed at receiving this award because he will think someone else deserves it more than him. The Strategically Serving Award involves an SLD who goes above and beyond, and the RD says this SLD’s full name should be Daniel “Above and Beyond” Bolton.“

Traivs Black
2010 SCA Alumnus

Travis Black, a 2010 graduate of Spartanburg Christian Academy and SCA basketball standout, is actively pursuing his dream of playing professional basketball overseas. Travis, pictured left in the picture, moved from Dublin, Ireland to Spartanburg to attend SCA and begin his
journey of playing basketball in America. Travis knew the experiences of playing college
basketball in America would best prepare him for a future in professional basketball in Europe. He is now a freshman at Spartanburg Methodist College and is getting attention from
everyone who watches him play. “I think he is just starting to come into his own and be
comfortable in adjusting to the college game,” Spartanburg Methodist head coach Jeff
Brookman said. “I wanted him right out of Spartanburg Christian. And he's such a great kid.” Travis has helped lead the Spartanburg Methodist Pioneers to the NJCAA championship
tournament being held this week. SCA wishes Travis all the best in pursuing his dreams and is so proud to be part of his journey!

Tom Vest
2009 SCA Alumnus
A Heart for Missions

Tom’s first experience with foreign missions was when he went with SCA’s basketball team and coaches to Costa Rica in the summer of 2008.  He then went with Impact Sports to Ghana in January of 2011 and felt a true call to missions.  Tom then spent a month in China in the summer of 2011, and since returning home has been searching for a way to go back.  That search ended when he accepted a job to teach English and coach basketball in China for the Spring Semester, with the option of staying for a full year. SCA is so proud of Tom and his obedience to go where God leads him! 

Atticus Fehl

Dr. Benjamin Dunlap, the President of Wofford College, says, “I believe the world is a better place because of Wofford College. I am certain it’s a better place because of the Bonner Scholars
Program.” Atticus, Wofford College class of 2012, has volunteered for three years at the St. Luke’s Free Medical Clinic where some of the staff confirm, he “could run the place.” Fehl continues to lead as he regularly tackles new responsibilities at St. Luke’s Free Medical Center.
