Director of Advancement
The CSCA Director of Advancement is tasked with directing and developing events and programs which will enhance and promote the future growth and development of Coral Springs Christian Academy. These events and programs will increase awareness; positive image and support from the CSCA community and the community at large.
Coral Springs Christian Academy is pleased to have Mr. LaMonte Coleman as their Director of Advancement. His experience, education and career make him the right choice for this very important position at our school.
Much of LaMonte’s life has been filled with and defined by football. At a young age, it became apparent he had exceptional skills which would serve him well. Throughout his playing career, he has achieved great success, including signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League in 1995 as a running back. LaMonte was a member of the Pittsburgh Steeler team which made it to Super Bowl XXX.
Although football was a significant part of his life, it was not the only part, or even the most important part. LaMonte loves the Lord Jesus Christ, his family and serving the Lord. LaMonte and his wife Shavonne are proud parents of CSCA students Christopher in kindergarten and Kennedy in 4th grade.
He is also passionate about education, in particular, Christian education. A graduate of The Ohio State University, he is currently pursuing advanced degrees in the fields of educational and athletic management and administration. Since his arrival in South Florida, he has been involved in education, working on the high school level as a teacher and administrator and on the college level, working for Keiser University in the area of admissions.
Perhaps his best training for this position came when he retired from the National Football League and the Arena Football League to become the owner and General Manager of the Marion Blue Racers. A member of the Continental Indoor Football League, LaMonte developed strong skills in many areas including donor cultivation and recruitment, product placement and sales, marketing, finances and fundraising. Since selling the team and moving here to South Florida, his skills for a position such as this have been furthered developed as he has spent the past few seasons working for the Miami Dolphin Football team as a member of their VIP Guest Relations team.
Picture a young man, a young man in uniform. He is a student at the United States Naval Academy. You listen to him talk and you realize this young man is both bright, articulate and has real personality. You listen intently to his words as he recalls what has influenced his life and helped to make him the man he is today…
Now picture a beautiful young woman on the street of England. She begins to speak and she too is articulate, warm and friendly. She stands in front of the University of Oxford, she begins to tell you how she is studying abroad this year and she wants to tell you what has influenced her life and made an impact on her…
Now a third picture, this young man is confident, well-spoken and funny. He sits on a couch in a college dorm room in Georgia. He begins to speak and reminisce about the things in his life which have helped him to become not only a stellar student, but a young man who loves the Lord and his family.
As he shares you hear something familiar, you have heard it before, it is a theme from all three of these young people. The message they each share, their love for Coral Springs Christian Academy. Each of these students is an alumni of CSCA!
If you attended the CSCA Cornerstone Banquet you heard the testimonies of Dean Williams, Jessica Monteiro and Austin Cantrell. They each shared in their own words how CSCA has impacted their lives and helped them to become who they are today.
Just as they did in their testimonies, I would also like to thank the CSCA Community, for you incredible support and encouragement for more than forty-five years!
Over the past month, CSCA held its 3rd Annual CSCA Cornerstone Banquet and brought back the Crusader Classic Golf Event. Both events were a real success and enjoyed by all who participated. I want to especially thank all of you who have already made contributions to the 2016 CSCA Annual Fund.
The goal of the 2016 CSCA Annual Fund is to raise $100,000.00. The monies raised will be used to reach our strategic initiatives and special projects for the year. Several initiatives and goals have already been reached, such as the addition of a new Jazz Band, robotics and STEAM programs in both the Upper School and Lower School.
In advance, I want to thank you for your continued support, encouragement and prayers!
