A Servant’s Heart

Joshua's Hands is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2010 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.

Matthew will attend Texas A&M University in the fall.  His essay was honest and transparent in telling of his struggles…and in telling of the man who stood beside him through it all.  He wrote of a “super hero” who “held on despite the pain it caused [him]” and “taught me that if I want to seek a servant’s heart, I must seek a heart that loves like this, that loves with action and gives no thought to self.”  The lessons he learned from this servant have changed his life.  The lessons he learned were from his father.

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.
