Little Rock founder passes away

Little Rock founder passes away

Dr Abraham is the founder of Little Rock Indian School, Crossland College and India Theological Seminary which function at the Priority Highlands Campus in Brahmavar. Besides these educational institutions, he had founded the Brahmavar Baptist Church, and Heidi Home, an orphanage.

Every institution he founded was one with a difference. A huge community of teachers, staff and students owe their gratitude to this great visionary, for making a difference in their lives due to his self-less service and exemplary life. The work scholarship scheme he introduced enabled so many young men and women from financially deprived sections to study in the college and gain employment.

Hailing from the Cheppanalil family of Venmoney, near Chengannur in Kerala, he did his early education in his home town and started his career as a high school teacher. A gold medalist in BEd from the Kerala University, he went on to earn his PhD in Science Education from the University of Maryland, USA. He was also awarded an honorary doctorate by the Liberty University, Virginia in USA. Dr Abraham taught in Peet Memorial Training College in Mavelikara for some years.

He leaves behind his wife Alice Abraham and two daughters Lali Abraham and Leela Abraham. His sons-in-law are Professor Mathew C Ninan, Principal of Little Rock and Varghese Daniel, the Administrative Officer of the campus. His nephew Dr Roy Philip is the Dean of the India Theological Seminary. 

The mortal remains of Dr Abraham will be kept in the campus auditorium at Priority Highlands for public homage from 9 am to 11 am on October 12. The Funeral services will begin at 11 am on the same day, and the mortal remains will be interred in the campus cemetery.
