Adam Lebbs was awarded the 2012 AFHE Scholarship
"In the fall, I will attend Patrick Henry College where I will pursue a degree in Government and will participate in their Moot Court program. Patrick Henry is renowned for its excellent preparation in the fields of politics and law. Politics has interested me since I took American Government and Economics courses. My interest continued growing after participating in Youth and Government and in Team Policy debate. Law has interested me since I completed Dr. Farris’ Constitutional Law class and my interest grew this summer at Moot Court Camp. After Patrick Henry, I plan on pursuing a law degree."
Philip Ormand was awarded the 2012 AFHE Scholarship
"My desire and ultimate goal in life is to fight for the Kingdom of God. Since I have a keen interest in media, computer graphics, and philosophy, my chosen tactical direction is that of communications. I want to spend my life working to spread ideas and infuse biblical principles into American culture. I will attend Patrick Henry College, majoring in Political Journalism. I greatly respect their academic quality and their discipleship-minded community. I dream of training/organizing a dynamic, skilled group of Christian media professionals—a network of able writers, artists, etc.—and revolutionizing 'dominion through multimedia.'"
Kaitlyn Tylor was awarded the 2012 AFHE Scholarship
"For a long time, science has been a passion of mine. At age 16, I took Biology 181 and 182 at Glendale Community College and received an Outstanding Student Achievement Award. My success solidified my desire to obtain a degree in a cell-related science and work toward a PhD in microbiology, specifically in research and development. I have a desire to use my future, career included, for God’s glory. I plan on using my doctorate to help others through cancer research or other forms of medical study. I want my passion for biology to have a positive influence in society."
Garrett Peelen was awarded the 2012 Mona Peller Scholarship
"For the short term, my plan is to develop into a skilled, prepared, and trained workman – a tool to be used by God as He sees best. I have chosen to study Mechanical Engineering because it is a diverse and challenging field in which I have interest and ability. I will be studying at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma. For the long term, my goal is to love God and love my neighbor in all that I do so as to personally impact the world for the glory of God."
Jonny Woodbury was awarded the 2012 Wilberforce Scholarship
"As I peer into my future, my hesitancy is not due to myopia, but an acceptance that I will travel a road yet unseen. Rather than a specific career calling out to me, I hear individual problems crying for solution. I plan to earn degrees in math and computer science not for their own sake, but because I feel they will enable me to confront those challenges. To address political reform I hope to democratize democracy through online political platforms, and to protect the unborn I hope to build a network both on and offline of pro-life youth."
