Tonia Walker, Winston-Salem State University director of athletics, has been appointed to the Western Triad Division of the FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) Leadership Board.

FCA is the largest interdenominational, school-based, Christian sports organization in America. FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Jesus Christ.

“I am honored to serve the FCA organization as a member of its board. The mission and values of FCA all align with my own personal philosophies, and  I look forward to our works together to move the vision forward,” Walker says.

Jeff Barnes, area director of Western Triad FCA, along with WSSU football Offensive Coordinator Steed Lobotzke, worked together to bring a WSSU chapter of FCA to the campus this fall.
“Tonia Walker is a welcomed addition to the Leadership Board of Western Triad Fellowship of Christian Athletes.  We seek people who love God, love kids and love sports and who have affluence, influence or both,” Barnes says.

On Jan. 7, 2015, WSSU will be hosting the FCA Coaches Appreciation Dinner at the Bowman Gray Field House at 6:30 pm.

“Certainly Mrs. Walker has a passion that suits our needs.  The role of a board member is to pray, serve and give in partnership with FCA.  As the area director, it is my job to develop and nurture FCA in Forsyth, Yadkin and Davie counties.  We very much look forward to Tonia’s service in our effort to ‘impact coaches and athletes for Christ (FCA vision),’” Barnes says.

Since 1954, the FCA has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ.
