A Servant’s Heart

Joshua's Hands is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2009 A Servant's Heart Scholarship.  In 2004, the organization established the scholarship to reward Loudoun County seniors for community service.  The scholarship is essay based and expanded in 2008 to provide three scholarships.

The essays were judged on composition, originality and understanding of servanthood.  Extra weight was given based on community references.

Emily will attend VCU in the fall.  She drew from her volunteer hours with the Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad to write her essay on serving.  “I believe that people feel most useful when they are helping others,” she wrote.  We couldn’t agree more!  We look forward to hearing how she  continues to set “an example for future generations to get out and get involved.”

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.
