Emma's attending Earlham!

Emma 2009

Dear Friends,

Emma Condori, former scholarship student, English teacher at Colegio Emmanuel, English program coordinator,  volunteer coordinator of volunteers in Bolivia, editorial board member of QUIP's Quaker Youth Book Project, FWCC-trained translator, and willing office assistant to Bernabe (I'm quite likely leaving something out here - did we mention she's also served on BQE-Bo's scholarship committee?), has been awarded a full 3-year international student scholarship to Earlham School of Religion's Masters of Divinity program.

Emma arrived in Indiana in July, and reports she's feeling better now, after a two-week period of adjusting to the difference in season, climate, altitude, etc.

Emma worked very hard to earn this opportunity, and deserves full credit for attaining it. But she, and we, know that without the support of generous donors like you, the initial BQEF scholarship which made her ensuing studies and professional choices possible would not have come to such joyous fruition. For that we all thank you.

We wait with delight and anticipation to see how this experience enhances her already rich gifts of dedicated service to Bolivian Quaker education.
