WPC’s New Act Six Scholars (Cadre Five)

The Act Six Leadership and Scholarship Initiative announced today that 59 emerging urban and community leaders across the Puget Sound region, Portland, Spokane, and the Yakima Valley will receive full-tuition, full-need scholarships. Collectively, the awards will provide more than $8 million in financial aid over four years.

Selected through a rigorous three-month competition among more than 900 applicants, these diverse student leaders were selected for their distinctive leadership, academic potential, and commitment to making a difference in their communities.

WPC’s Cadre Five Act Six Scholars:

Warner Pacific Act Six Cadre 5

Act Six develops leaders through a simple, but powerful, four-step strategy:

  • Recruit and select diverse, multicultural cadres of the Northwest’s most promising emerging urban and community leaders.
  • Train and prepare these groups of students in the year prior to college, equipping them to support each other, succeed academically, and grow as service-minded leaders and agents of transformation.
  • Send and fund the teams together to select private, liberal arts colleges in the Northwest on four year, full-tuition, full-need scholarships.
  • Support and inspire by providing strong campus support and ongoing leadership development to nurture these young people as they find their vocation and grow into the next generation of community leaders.

To date, 90 percent of the 434 scholars who have started college have graduated or are still enrolled – reflecting graduation and retention rates that far exceed national averages. Four Act Six scholars have been elected as student-body presidents and scholars have been involved in numerous other leadership roles on campus and in the community.

Inductees into the Knights Athletic Hall of Honor

Warner Pacific Hall of Honor Athletics 2014During Homecoming weekend (February 6-8), we will induct Darcy Fast and the 1982 and 1983 volleyball teams into the Knights Athletic Hall of Honor.

“Our tradition of inducting outstanding alums into our Athletic Hall of Honor continues with our 2014 class,” said Athletic Director Jamie Joss. “The Knights Club has selected very deserving former athletes and we are excited to welcome the committee’s selections back to the campus to share their special time at Warner Pacific with our current student-athletes during the homecoming weekend.”

Fast and the volleyball team will be honored on Saturday, February 8, during the Hall of Honor Dinner, and be recognized at half-time of the men’s basketball game.

Darcy Fast: Baseball and Basketball, 1965-67

Though drafted by the New York Yankees in the 7th round, Fast enrolled at Warner Pacific College in 1965. He participated in basketball and baseball for the Knights during the 1965-66 and 1966-67 seasons and was named All-Conference in both sports.

Drafted again in 1967, this time by the Chicago Cubs in the 6th round, Fast signed a professional contract and started pitching in the minor leagues. Quickly promoted to AAA Tacoma, he broke Hall of Famer Juan Marichal’s Pacific Coast League strike-out record in his first appearance.

Darcy’s reputation as one of the top pitching prospects in the Cub’s organization and his fast rise to the Major Leagues continued when he was called up by the Chicago Cubs in 1968 with less than one year of professional experience. Fast appeared in eight MLB games for the Cubs, and struck out ten batters in ten innings pitched. He also walked eight and gave up six earned runs and eight hits. His professional career lasted four seasons, from 1967–1970.

After leaving professional baseball, Darcy entered Christian ministry and served as Senior Pastor of Centralia Community Church for over thirty years. His life has been profiled in the Chicago Sun Times and Sports Spectrum Magazine as well as baseball books and magazines, and countless newspapers throughout the country. His book – The Missing Cub – a memoir of his baseball career and life’s calling was published by Xulon Press in 2008.

He is a lifetime member of the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association and the Association of Professional Ball Players of America.

1982 and 1983 Volleyball Teams

The pinnacle of success for Warner Pacific College Volleyball was in the early 1980′s, as the program won back-to-back NCCAA National Championships in 1982 and 1983. The Knights were coached by Gene Kreiger (82), and Terry Thomas (83).

Overall record 1982: 28-9, 1983: 38-10.

New Wrestling Coach Named

Johnson Selected to Lead Revival of Wrestling Program

Knights wrestling 1Warner Pacific College Director of Athletics Jamie Joss announced Frank Johnson, current Forest Grove High School wrestling coach, as the head coach of the newly launched Knights men’s and women’s wrestling programs.

Johnson is well-known in Northwest wrestling circles and has enjoyed success at the high school and college levels as a head coach, and as an ambassador for the sport in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. He will begin recruiting for the Knights immediately and will continue to coach the Forest Grove program through the end of the season.

“We had an excellent pool of candidates and the wrestling knowledge was outstanding, however with any coaching search at Warner Pacific College we look for more than a coach,” Joss said. “We look for coaches who are committed to not only living out our Christ-centered mission, but providing opportunities to student-athletes in our urban community where graduation is a top priority.

“Working with many first generation students from our community, our coaches have a great opportunity to impact lives for many generations by building strong young men and women who can be disciples in their community not only with their faith, but serve as mentors to their families, friends and other aspiring student-athletes in showing that earning a higher education degree is achievable,” Joss added. “Frank Johnson embodies all of these objectives experiencing these in his own journey of faith, wrestling and graduation from Pacific University (’91), as well as, his previous coaching experience in guiding high school wrestlers to College and recruiting them to his alma mater.”

Coach Johnson arrives from Forest Grove High School, where he has been head coach for the Viking wrestling program since 2002. He has guided the FGHS team to tremendous success, which includes two OSAA 6A individual state champions in 2007, and two more champions in 2010. Six of his wrestlers have participated in International Competition, and Forest Grove hosted a team from Russia in 2011.

His college experience consists of a five-year stint as head coach at his alma mater in Forest Grove, Oregon (1997-2002). Eight of his wrestlers achieved All-American status, and the Boxers won three regional team championships. The size of the men’s squad tripled, and Pacific launched a women’s program under his leadership. In 2002, seven women placed at the US Open Championships, and the Boxer team placed third overall.

Johnson is a long-time advocate for the sport of wrestling with 12 years of experience organizing wrestling clinics, camps, and goodwill competitions. These events have featured world class coaches and wrestlers from the United States, Canada, Japan, Korea, and Russia. Further promoting the sport locally, he started and served as editor of Matside Oregon, a statewide newspaper for amateur wrestling.

“Anytime you have the opportunity to add a new sport to your athletic program, the most important factor of success is finding a head coach that can share the College’s and athletic program’s vision and recruit student-athletes who see that vision for their futures,” Joss said. “It was obvious during the interview process that Frank is committed to building champions in the classroom, in the community, in competition and in Christ.  Frank has a daunting task of recruiting men’s and women’s programs over the next six months, but we are confident with his connections in the Pacific Northwest and experience in building a women’s wrestling program will allow him to build the championship-caliber programs we aspire to.”

Johnson also held head coaching posts at Kennewick High School (WA), and Henry Perrine Baldwin High School (HI).

“The Administration’s approach to wrestling is right in step with the overall mission of Warner Pacific College,” said Johnson. “They’ve put the pieces in place to build winning programs for both men’s and women’s wrestling. Being selected to lead the overall program is an honor.”

Warner Pacific previously fielded a men’s wrestling program from 1968-75 led by local coaching legend and Warner Pacific Hall of Honor member, Dave Sanville. Under Sanville, the Knights amassed a 58-30-3 record in dual match competition and had 35 individuals qualify for the NAIA National Wrestling Championships including one NAIA All-American.
