A Servant’s Heart

Joshua's Hands is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2008 A Servant's Heart Scholarship.  One of the three recipients is Lindsey Smith, a home-schooled senior from Loudoun, who plans to attend Mercyhurst College and has dedicated her life to service.  She received a $1000 scholarship from Joshua's Hands to be applied toward her educational expenses. 

Her essay about her experiences in Zambia, Peru, and even here in Loudoun County touched our hearts.

Her attitude is summed up in her T-shirt that says, “How do you live? I live to make a difference.”

Joshua's Hands was established in 1999 in memory of Joshua Guthrie, who was an enthusiastic community volunteer.  Joshua’s years of service were cut short by his death at the age of 16.  Joshua’s Hands seeks to continue to be his hands of service in the community and to encourage others to serve. 

The organization established A Servant's Heart Scholarship to reward a Loudoun County senior for community service.  In 2008, the award was expanded to a potential of three $1000 scholarships.
