Each year the Southern Union Conference Women’s Ministries accepts applications for the Emerging Women Leaders Scholarship Award from students attending the Union’s three universities. The 2020 awardees are Robin Davis from Oakwood University, and Alejandra Loayza who attends Southern Adventist University.
Robin Davis is a remarkable spiritual leader who delights in helping others. She has served as a literature evangelist and a Bible worker. Currently, she serves as residence hall assistant and campus ministry leader.
Davis says the scholarship award assisted her with the financial challenges of completing her degree. She plans to utilize her knowledge and skills to serve others in her community, church, and within her social spheres using Christ’s method as a guide.
She believes women all around the world are waiting for the right person to help them gain enough confidence to step into their God-given calling.
Alejandra Loayza loves helping people in the area of their health. She is a member of the varsity team, works in Vacation Bible School as song leader and games leader, and serves as a student ambassador.
In the community, Loayza works with Maranatha building houses, and with the “Be A Buddy” program for children with special needs. Her life goals are to graduate and work toward becoming a nurse practitioner.
The scholarship award helped with tuition and purchase of textbooks. She believes that having women’s ministries in the churches is truly important because women’s lives are impacted by their example.
