One of the greatest minds of our time--or any time--Loyd Boldman was a true treasure within the membership of Word Weavers International. As one of our earliest members (with Word Weavers Orlando), Loyd designed our two interchangeable logos. He won multiple awards (both within Word Weavers Orlando and when we were a part of the Christian Writers Guild), and was presented a prestigious award by Jerry B. Jenkins, himself.
Loyd was a pioneer in Christian rock music with his band, Prodigal. They were not only Dove Award winners, but they also broke ground with one of the first-ever Christian music videos, "Wall of Sound." Beyond music, Loyd was gifted in design and writing. He was called a "true Renaissance Man."
On April 22, 2014, Loyd left our "family" to be with Jesus personally. While he will be forever missed by those who knew and loved him, it is with great honor that Word Weavers International and Florida Christian Writers Conference presents The Loyd A. Boldman Memorial Scholarship Award toward full tuition at FCWC.
