York College honors Sikes family with Legacy Award
In all, 42 members of the Sikes family have enrolled at York, many of them going on to serve as preachers, teachers, doctors and missionaries.
“They’ve dedicated themselves to God,” York President Steve Eckman said of the family. “But to the benefit of this place, they’ve also dedicated themselves to York College. And they have made a difference — a huge difference.”
At York’s recent homecoming, the family was honored with the Legacy Award.
All 13 of Jack and Robbie’s children attended the presentation. The extended family gathered on stage and sang “Led by the Master’s Hand” and “Bread Sent from Heaven.”
Robbie said she and Jack were intentional about raising a Christian family. They did their best to plant seeds of faith in their children and were pleased when each chose to attend York.
“We could see how the spiritual commitment of our children was able to take root and grow stronger in a Christ-centered community,” she said.
