In August 1996, a young male lion cub was born from the tribe of Judah. After years of rigorous preparation guided by his mentor - alpha pride leader - he decided to expand his territory and find his own pride to lead. His courageous journey led him to the sunny beaches of Southwest Florida, much like the sands of the desert of Judah. He has found his new den at First Baptist Academy, where he has been called upon to build up and encourage the FBA family. Here at FBA, he loves attending different sporting events, where he struts his school pride for all to see. He can also be found in the library, hallways and classrooms encouraging students to grow in wisdom, strength and unity!
