Graduating senior Lee Hyatt preaches in the R.G. Lee Chapel after winning the Presidential Excellence in Preaching Award.

Lee Hyatt, a graduating senior at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville, was chosen as this semester's recipient of the Excellence in Preaching Award presented by BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen and wife Ruth Ann. As the winner, he opened the final week of chapel services for the spring semester on Monday, May 3 with a message about being encouragers.

Hyatt emphasized how Christians need to be aware of their responsibility to encourage others. "If Paul needed encouragement, how much more do we need it," questioned Hyatt.
He competed with seven other BCF preaching students in April, presenting his sermon before a panel of faculty judges and a student gallery. He was given a commemorative Bible during Senior Honor's Day Wednesday, May 5 by President Kinchen.

Hyatt received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Ministry during spring graduation ceremonies Friday, May 14. He will be serving as a Ministry Assistant at First Baptist Church of Fruitland Park, FL.
