McClain Robinson Receives
Missional Involvement Scholarship
On Sunday, May 3rd, the Mission and Service Team at Highland Park UMC was pleased to present the 2015 Missional Involvement Scholarship to McClain Robinson, a member of the church and student at Oklahoma State University. McClain was also the first recipient of this award when it was established in 2012. This scholarship is meant to recognize the good deeds of a young person as they reach out into our community and world.
The nomination form we received included the following recommendation: McClain serves the church (local, district, and international) and the community diligently while pursuing his degree at OSU, on his own financially. In past years he has made mission trips to Bolivia and the Philippines, he was a part of PB&J to raise money for Kenya, he served on the District Transition Committee for OKUMC, he has served as chair of SPRC, he teaches Sunday School, he serves as a counselor at New Day Camp and works with the Kairos Prison Ministry at the prison in Cushing, and he is active in Big Brothers/Big Sisters (most recently serving on the BB/BS Event Planning Committee, being selected as the Payne County volunteer of the Month, and being named the 2014 Big Brother of the Year). As I said, I don’t think you will find any other young person in our congregation who can top this resume of service. Congratulations to McClain on a job well done.
