CONGRATULATIONS to Sallianne Roher, who has been chosen by the Scholarship Committee of Friendswood Friends Church to receive the Patricia Spencer Allen Scholarship for 2019-2020. Our best wishes go to Sallianne as she begins her studies at the University of Houston Honors College this fall, where she plans to prepare for a possible career in medical missions. The scholarship committee was also deeply impressed by the other outstanding students who applied for the scholarship this year, and extends congratulations to them on their achievements during their high school years. Our church is blessed to have so many young people who have worked hard not only at their academic studies but also at ministering to others through this church and other organizations. Please remember ALL of our new and continuing college students in your prayers.
