Also 8th grade student El Shaddai was recognized for his growth and achievements, socially, spiritually and academically. El Shaddai shared his story and testimony of his relationship with Christ. "I came to SFCA [San Francisco City Academy] two years ago and things started to get better. The teacher's never cared about me and never gave up on me. But I still struggled with sin...I was mixed up with the wrong crowd. I needed good role models and that is exactly what I've found at SFCA. I gave my life to Christ on a trip to Fort Bragg with my [SFCA] basketball team last year. I've been going to discipleship group with my PE teacher every thursday. Through discipleship group I learned about Jesus and what he did on the cross for me and forgives me even though I mess up. Because of Jesus and the hard work of the teachers at SFCA I made honor roll this quarter with a 3.8 GPA."
