Huston Hastie, son of Eric and Bennett Hastie, and Sydney Ryan, daughter of Andrew and Scarlett Ryan, members of First Christian Church in Winchester, have been awarded Phillips University Legacy Scholarships for 2007-08 from the Phillips University Legacy Foundation.
Hastie, a junior at Transylvania University, and Ryan, a freshman at Transylvania University, received the scholarships based on academic excellence and Christian leadership in their church, vocation and community.
The undergraduate scholarships are intended to provide leadership training and academic support for promising young Christian leaders pursuing a liberal arts education.
The students recently participated in a four day all-expense-paid Leadership Development Conference hosted by the Legacy Foundation. Author and motivational speaker Patrick Combs was the keynote speaker at the November conference. Scholars also perform an annual 48-hour volunteer service project.
