    Each year the Upper New York Annual Conference College Scholarships Committee offers Lottie Brown Scholarships for undergraduate students who are intending to enter a career in Christian service. This year’s recipients are Katie Allen, Avery Burnsworth, Delena Castle, Nicole DelCante, Amethyst Gardner, Lorrine Glover, and Colin Weichenthal.

    Katie, a theology major at Houghton College, is not absolute certain of what her career will be, but she knows that she wants to do it as a ministry first.

    Avery will be attending High Point University and intends to become a counselor in the criminal justice system.

    Delena will be attending Vermont Technical College. An animal lover and a believer that animals are God’s creatures, Delena plans to become a Veterinary Technician.

    Nicole will be attending Cornell University and will major in agricultural sciences with a concentration in education and society. She hopes to become an agricultural educator I a public school.

    Amethyst will be attending SUNY Oneonta, where she will be pursuing a career in teaching.

    Lorrine attends Finger Lakes Community College. She has worked in human services for many years and is furthering her education to pursue a career in social work.

    Colin plans to attend either Elmira College or Keuka College and wishes to pursue a career in social work as well.

    It is scholarships like the Lottie Brown scholarships that enable our young people to fulfill the path God is calling them to take. We ask that you keep each of these scholarship recipients in your prayers as they begin their steps to careers where they will continue to serve God.
