Prestonwood Christian Academy (PCA) honored five student athletes who signed Letters of Intent to play sports at the collegiate level. All five students signed with NCAA Division I schools.
“I am incredibly proud of the five students who signed today to play at five high-caliber collegiate athletic programs,” said PCA’s Athletic Director, Chris Cunningham. “What impresses me more than their outstanding athletic talent, though, is their heart for the Lord. I know they are going to make a positive difference at these universities in more ways than just in their respective sports.”
