DUNWOODY: Church gives seniors scholarships

DUNWOODY: Church gives seniors scholarships

DUNWOODY, Ga. -- Seven high school graduates from Dunwoody United Methodist Church are receiving college scholarships based on their active participation in the church youth group.

"These Senior scholarship recipients are special precisely because of the sincerity of their faith and their loyalty to this church," said DUMC Youth Director Lane Davis.

"They have been on mission trips to jungles and to inner-city communities," Davis said. "They have sung and they have danced in youth choir. They have asked tough questions in Sunday School and wrestled with what their faith means in the context of their lives during Wednesday and Sunday night worship."

FMSA Students Raise Funds to Benefit Japanese Victims

FMSA Students Raise Funds to Benefit Japanese Victims

Janice Roberts' students at First Montessori School of Atlanta were concerned about the destruction in Japan after the tsunami and asked what they could do to help the victims. One of the ideas the kids had was to make and sell jewelry.

Although it took them a while to make enough jewelry from clay and beads to sell, that's what they did, raising approximately $200 in one day to benefit the Japanese victims.

Located on Long Island Drive in Sandy Springs, First Montessori School of Atlanta serves the needs of students ages 18 months to 14 years old.
