Green Team Southwestern and Discipleship recently awarded their Heart of Leadership awards which includes a $500 prize.
Discipleship awarded their Heart of Leadership award to the First United Methodist Church youth group in McPherson.
“They were given the award because of the diligence and passion for their service,” say Mallorie Coffman, Southwestern College Discipleship team administrator. “They are participating in mission throughout the Midwest and other missions in Africa.”
Green Team Southwestern presented their award to the Eureka JSHS Green Team.
The $500 prize will go towards the construction of a TerraCycle wall with gabion walls in Eureka.
“The impact of this project will be to show community members that there are alternatives to 'throwing away' certain items and keeping them out of the waste stream,” says Stacey Hart, adult supervisor for the Eureka JSHS Green Team. “We also think that by participation in these types of projects we foster stewardship responsibilities when it comes to the environment and personal decisions.”
Every year Leadership Southwestern awards three Heart of Leadership awards recognizing an environmental service project, a community service project, and a church mission project. Earlier in the school year, the Winfield High School student council earned the Leadership award for their work on raising money for breast cancer awareness.
