Paul Young, FCA sponsor, history teacher and assistant baseball coach at SHHS nominated Skyler for the award for being a servant leader in his school. Skyler was honored at FCA's annual Legacy Dinner on April 10. At the banquet, award winners were challenged to continue their leadership into their senior year to advance the cause of Christ in their school.

The guest speaker at the Legacy Dinner was Dan Meers, who is also known for his role as KC Wolf, mascot of the Kansas City Chiefs. He shared his story of how his faith helped him get through a very tough time in his life.

The Matt Alexander Servant Leadership Award is named after an individual who exemplified great faith and a servant's heart. The award is given to a current junior involved in FCA who shows a dedication to leadership. High school juniors are nominated by their FCA sponsors and only one winner is selected each year.
