Becky Weima

Rebekah Weima was the recipient of the Edna Greenway Scholarship for 2005-2006. This scholarship is currently worth $1700 and is awarded to a Spanish Education major entering the junior or senior year. As part of the application process, students are asked to reflect on and articulate the importance of the integration of faith in their own lives and careers. The following is an excerpt from the essay she wrote.

“My commitments as a Christian...impact not just the way I treat students but also the content of what I teach them about the Spanish language and Hispanic culture. Breaking down negative stereotypes, creating a sense of respect for cultural differences, and encouraging students to take on another perspective are all ways to demonstrate the truth that each of us are image bearers of God and that we have a responsibility to treat others in a Christ-like manner.”
