In honor of our beloved Brother Harold James Frelix Jr., Priest Lake Community Baptist Church, under the leadership of Senior Pastor Travis Tullis, is excited to award the Harold James Frelix Jr. Scholarship to a Christ believing young man with a desire to serve The King, Jesus Christ, in the Kingdom of God. It is Priest Lake Community Baptist Church’s desire to support the deserving candidate’s pursuit of education in the Fall semester 2023 at a college, university, or trade school.  

Harold James Frelix Jr. put his faith to work, accepted Christ, and was baptized at an early age. He graduated from Antioch High School in Antioch, TN. While attending high school he played on the football team and the wrestling team. He was also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. After graduation, he continued his education at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN where he was a part of the ROTC and pledged Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. Harold graduated at the top of his class and then spent several years working for the Metro Nashville Police Department as a patrol officer and later, as a Real Estate Agent.

Harold James Frelix Jr. was also a Reserve Army Officer in the military. He remained in the reserves until answering a call for active duty for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Over the course of his military career, he earned his commission as a Major, and received numerous awards for his service including: the National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal with Campaign Star, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, and the Armed Forces Reserve Medal.

After his active duty military tour, he came home and started his own cleaning service. He was elected president of the Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO) at Cane Ridge High School and started Fathers Walk in the Hallway.

At Priest Lake Community Baptist Church, where Harold Jr. was an Assistant Pastor, he was busy doing the work to leave a legacy we still talk about today. In fact, Harold Jr. is responsible for the button you see many members wearing that says, “If you ain’t real, you ain’t right.” He believed in being transparent and living a confessional life. It was his desire to be in God’s presence. As he worked with the men around the church, he used his testimony to help them along the way. He witnessed by serving as a Man of Valor, working on the security team, and teaching the youth and adults in Sunday School. Harold Jr. loved working with the youth and never hesitated to lend a helping hand to any auxiliary in need.
