Timothy Christian School’s nominees this year were two outstanding scholar-athletes that reflected the name and reputation of Timothy Christian clearly and proudly on the conference-wide stage of last night’s banquet.

Lucas Soucek began his academic career at Timothy Christian School as 6 year old first grader. Lucas’ athletic career began in the 6th grade as a middle school student. Both his academic and athletic careers have reached full maturity during his high school years. Academically, Lucas is a member of the National Honor Society and carries a 4.06 gpa with a four year numeric average of 95.7. Lucas has contributed to a wide array of teams at Timothy Christian. He was part of TCS’ first ever divisional championship baseball and basketball teams. He played for the divisional championship soccer team. Lucas is currently chasing down the Timothy Christian School’s 400m record on the track team. Through his athletic involvement Lucas has served the community of Timothy Christian by being a coach for the Jr Tiger elementary soccer, basketball, and track programs. Lucas has also demonstrated well-rounded interests as a member of the Timothy Christian School Choral Group singing in duets and even solos. Lucas Soucek will attend the Rutgers School of Business in the fall, majoring in accounting.

Aiyanna Wilkinson has proven the age-old concept that what you put into life is what you get out of it. Aiyanna’s investment into her academics has yielded her membership in the National Honor Society, a 4.01 gpa, a 95.1 numeric career average, and a full Merit Scholarship for her soon-to-begin collegiate career. Inside of the athletic department, Aiyanna has used her talents to be a leader in the Timothy Christian School cheerleading program as a captain on the 2013-14 squad. On the track, Aiyanna has been a pace-setter for the Timothy Christian School track program; she is an all-division track athlete who owns the school record in the 100 meter hurdles and the long jump. Aiyanna has served her community well, being a coach for the Tigerette cheer program for elementary girls and the Jr Tiger Chasers track program for elementary students. Aiyanna Wilkinson will attend Ohio University in the fall on a 4 year Merit Scholarship, majoring in early childhood education.

These two scholar-athletes have proven that once again, the academic experience at Timothy Christian is as competitive county-wide as the athletic experience.
