The St. Teresa of Calcutta Knights of Columbus Council have awarded the winners for the 2018 Scholarship contest. Participants were asked to write a short, 500 word essay on “What community or church activity have I participated in that I am most proud of and why?”
Since it’s difficult to simulate a drum roll in print, or open and envelope for that matter, we’ll get right to the winners.
The runner-up and receiving a $250 scholarship to the University of Washington – Bothell, was Jeffrey Baldwin. Jeffrey wrote of his experiences in teaching vacation bible school.
The winner, with a $500 scholarship to the University of Portland, was Kathryn Lampe. Kathryn wrote of a mission trip to Mexico and her time spent building shelters and ministering to the needy.
Both winners wrote of life-changing experiences and how their mission has called to them repeatedly. Congratulations to both!
