HUNTINGTON, Ind.— On May 1, the Friesen Center for Volunteer Service named the winners Huntington University Servant Leadership Awards.

The winners were Emily Carbaugh, a biology pre-med major from Orbisonia, Pa., and Abby Goering, a social work major from Carol Stream, Ill. Each winner will receive a $750 scholarship and $250 to gift to a charity of their choice.

The purpose of the award is to promote the ideals of servant leadership in the Huntington University community, both on and off campus.

Only juniors with a 2.5 GPA average can receive the award, and first must be nominated by a community member.

The awards are given to honor the hard work both students put forward in working to serve the township of Huntington, their fellow students and their churches.
