your GIFT TODAY . . . Empowers Students to Alleviate Suffering and Declare Truth to the Powerful of this World.
“I want to be a bridge between the people who make policy for hostile areas and the people who are most affected by violence.”
—Jill Baggerman, United Methodist Student Day Scholarship recipient
your GIFT TODAY CHANGES THE WORLD
United Methodist Student Day scholarship recipient Jill Baggerman is studying to be a peacemaker as a graduate student at the United Nations University in Tokyo.
Baggerman credits her home church with the first stage of preparation to change her world: “The church gave me plenty of training and practice in leading.” She led Bible studies throughout high school and an adult mission trip to India.
“My long-term goal,” she explained, “is to . . . make a significant contribution to preventing a conflict by bringing solutions to the root causes.”
EMPOWERED STUDENTS ARE PREPARED STUDENTS.
But Baggerman couldn’t have done it without help. She received a United Methodist Student Day scholarship as she worked her way through the University of Texas. “It was difficult to study for classes and work at the same time,” she said. “But if the church doesn’t help, then who will? That is why this scholarship is significant.”
