Liz Lewis, Birmingham Christian Family’s (BCF) 2021 $1,000 College Scholarship recipient, planned to attend Judson College this fall where she also had a softball scholarship. However, while healing from a wrist/elbow injury this summer, she received the news that Judson College was closing. “I was devastated when I learned that my plans had been turned upside down. However, I had forgotten that my plans may not be His plans and Jeremiah 29:11 was continually put on my heart.” Lewis shares that after looking into several colleges, she did not feel at peace with any of them until a friend mentioned that Jacksonville State University (JSU) was offering scholarship opportunities for Judson students. “I decided to fill out the application and go for a visit. I loved the campus’ atmosphere and a few weeks later after much prayer, I made the exciting decision to become a Gamecock. I would have never considered attending JSU unless God had closed the door to Judson, but His plan is always better.” Lewis is excited about pursuing a degree in accounting! BCF wishes all the best to Liz Lewis in her future endeavors.
BCF will begin accepting applications for 2022 scholarships in early January 2022. Click here for more details!
