A Servant’s Heart

Joshua’s Hands is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2018 A Servant’s Heart Scholarship -- which was established to honor graduating seniors who truly understand the concept of serving others.  To date, we have awarded more than $36,000 in college scholarships.

The scholarship is essay based and expanded in 2008 to provide three scholarships.  A Servant's Heart Scholarship is intended to encourage the concept of serving others.

Hope was only our second ever video submission. This young woman has a passion for video and for serving others. After years of involvement in established service projects, she realized she could merge her passions. When her sister asked for help documenting a humanitarian project, the light bulb came on. That was the first of many projects to benefit from her creative skills. In her video submission she noted: “I came to learn that service can be fun; and it can be unique to your own sense of style and creativity.”

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.

There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind. The second way is to be kind. The third way is to be kind.
