Wyatt Powell Lives Out His Dreams        

Alumnus Wyatt Powell is living out his dreams. After graduating from Fort Bend Christian Academy in 2011, he played baseball for Sam Houston State University for four years.

“Playing baseball at FBCA prepared me for the collegiate level in many ways,” Powell said. "It helped me learn the value in taking care of the little things. When you take care of the little things in life (picking up the trash in the dugout, hustling from one spot to the next, rooting on teammates), the big things will come easy. It takes no talent to do the little things right!”

Upon graduation from Sam Houston State, he landed a job working in Goldman Sachs's Private Wealth Management group in downtown Houston. While working at Goldman Sachs, he met Jennifer Scott, whom he married on July 22, 2017 at Noah's Event Venue in Sugar Land, Texas.

Many FBCA alumni were in attendance and involved in the wedding including Walker Powell (Best Man), Class of 2014 and David Thomas (Groomsman), Class of 2011.

“David Thomas was my most influential teammate at FBCA,” Powell said. “On top of being an excellent friend and teammate at FBCA, he ended up marrying my first cousin, so we are now family/friends for life! We stay in constant contact, and we are all lucky as Americans to have him defending this great country as a member of the U.S. Air Force.” 

Powell and his wife are members of West U Baptist Church.
