    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 Dakota Stott, Joshua Chun, Jonathan Smith, Will Allen, and Amethyst Gardener.

    Dakota is majoring in Youth Ministry at Eastern University. She plans to go to seminary after graduating on the path to become a full-time ordained pastor at a United Methodist church.

    Joshua will be attending Princeton University in pursuit of a career in medicine. He hopes that as a doctor, he will be able to help support projects and events at his local church.

    Jonathan will be attending Plattsburg UMC and plans to major in history and sociology with a goal of teaching in the college setting. Jonathan also feels called to become an ordained deacon in the UMC and use the education received as well as faith to help mold future generations in both the academic and church settings.

    Will is majoring in History at Houghton College. As a historian, he hopes to build bridges that stimulate communities in positive directions with history as his guide.

    Amethyst is majoring in Early Childhood-Elementary Education at SUNY Oneonta. She believes that teaching is a Christian service, as Jesus was the greatest teacher.

    It is scholarships like the Lottie Brown scholarship 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.
