California Resident Wins Grace Scholarship Competition
During the weekend of Feb. 15-16, Grace College hosted 133 high school students for its presidential scholarship competition. The annual competition brings finalists to campus to compete for scholarships ranging for $1,000-$25,000 per year. This year’s winner, Hannah Scott, traveled from her hometown of Canyon Country, CA to attend the competition.
Hannah, the daughter of Pastor and Mrs. Peter Scott, is a young lady with a servant’s heart and a well defined sense of her relationship with Christ. She loves reading, serving others, learning the French language, and has ambitious dreams for her future at Grace College and beyond.
“Hannah definitely deserves to be the presidential scholarship winner,” said Arielle Walters, Hannah’s admissions counselor at Grace. “Her hard work, discipline and wonderful spirit are very evident from the time you meet her. I am excited to see where the Lord takes her during her time here at Grace and post graduation!”
“We are so excited as a family about the opportunity that Grace and God have given Hannah,” said her father, Peter. “Hannah’s biggest strengths are her interpersonal skills and her strong personal faith in Christ. This combination has made her respected by adults and someone her peers look to for advice and counsel.”
Hannah, a four-year high school French student, wishes to continue studying the language and hopes to graduate with a double major in either French or Political Science and English. She has many ideas for her future, such as attending law school to become a corporate lawyer or a university professor. She also hopes to work with international justice missions or international business for a company in need of someone fluent in English and French.
“My biggest hope is that her relationship with God will continue to solidify and that she will allow God to mold her into the woman that he wants her to be. I am excited to see how God will use Grace College in that process,” said her mother, Melody.
