Recognizing him for all he does for the school was just the right thing to do. He is a Godly man who sets an example for all who know him.”
The plaque presented to Coach Stephens summed up Parsons’ statements. “In Recognition Of Justin Stephens For Outstanding Service To Central Christian As World Class Coach, Extraordinary Athletic Teacher, Master Teacher, and Mighty Man of God. Your CCS Family Loves You!”
