Lighthouse Scholarship recipient

Kristin Vanderwell

According to Kristin’s nominating professor she fits the requirements of the Lighthouse Scholarship perfectly. As her professor notes, through mission trips to Haiti and the adoption process of her sibling, Kristin has seen the suffering in Haiti, and “rather than just ignore it, she continues to act on her desire to serve people in Haiti, not just by going herself, but by organizing groups to travel and serve. She understands the love she shows to children in Haitian orphanages as an expression of the hands and feet of Christ to children most of the world has forgotten.”
