BCF Graduate Student Heather Larson wins award at the 2016 Southeast Regional meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society.

Each year, the Southeast Region of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) holds meetings to promote evangelical and theological scholarship among its members. This year, a current graduate student and employee from The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville was honored at the prestigious gathering.

The 2016 Southeast Regional meeting of ETS was held in Columbia, South Carolina on the campus of Columbia International University March 18-19. BCF graduate student Heather Larson is pursuing her Master’s Degree in Christian Studies and submitted a paper to the ETS for consideration. Larson excitedly received word that she won the award for “Third Best Paper Presented by a Student” for her topic entitled “Who is the Virtuous Woman of Proverbs 31?” The award which was selected by a panel of three prominent American evangelical theologians accompanied a monetary gift.

“I was pleasantly surprised to have received the third place award for student papers at the recent ETS meeting. Our Lord seems to know precisely when we need encouragement, and I’m viewing this as confirmation that I’m heading in the right direction,” stated Larson. “I’m grateful to Dr. Freeman for persuading me to submit the paper and for all of the excellent professors at BCF who have taught and helped me along the way.”
