Three United Methodist students from Iowa are returning to classes this fall with a $1,000 scholarship provided by the generosity of our congregations throughout the state.
Felicity Eward is a first year student at Simpson College in Indianola. A member of Trinity United Methodist Church in Keokuk, she plans to study music.
Brian Williams is also a student at Simpson. He is a junior this fall, studying music and exploring candidacy into ministry with the United Methodist Church. His home congregation is Broadway United Methodist Church in Council Bluffs.
Humberto Gonzalez Santana is a student at St. Paul School of Theology in the Kansas City area. He is a certified candidate for ministry in the United Methodist Church. He was prepared for this new stage of ministry through participation with his local church, Trinity Las Americas United Methodist Church in Des Moines.
The United Methodist Student Day offering is received each November. Ninety percent of those gifts go to support scholarships throughout the United Methodist connection. The remaining ten percent is rebated back to the Iowa Conference for distribution.
