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.

Morgan will attend Bucknell University in the fall.  She learned about service and a servant’s heart from two mentors in her life.  She credits them with “acts of selfless devotion,” and frequently, “div[ing] into a situation not knowing the conditions or consequences just to pull some[one] to safety.”  It was refreshing to read her essay and see that she has modeled her life, in many ways, after examples set by her parents.

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.
