greenhouse graduate scholarship

This scholarship was birthed by a generous gift from David and Susie Lindner, GreenHouse volunteers and board members who loved The GreenHouse from the beginning. The goal of this scholarship is to support GreenHouse Graduates as they pursue education beyond high school, whether through college or vocational school. That journey looks different for everyone, and we want to support you in pursuing your unique dreams for the future!

 

Psalm 1 says that a person who loves God’s word is like “a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season, and whose leaf does not wither.” This is our prayer for you: that like a healthy tree, your roots will sink deep and your branches will spread wide as you discover God’s unique plan for your life. We believe that your life will in turn touch other people’s lives for the good. We are with you all the way!
