May 2018 Scholarship Winner
The Human Resource Committee of the Hands of Hope NW Advisory Board has selected Isaac Mitchell as the recipient of the $500 Elizabeth Murtland World Impact Scholarship. Isaac graduated this spring from Northwest Nazarene University with a 4.0 GPA. In the fall he plans on beginning his first year at Loma Linda University School of Medicine.
In addition to helping at Hands of Hope NW, Isaac volunteered weekly at the Lighthouse Rescue Mission answering phones, receiving donations, and working with the residents. He has also helped out at the Hope House and Boise Rescue Mission. As part of the NNU Cross Country team he traveled to Kenya and helped out at orphanages and hospitals. The trip to
Kenya played a vital role in his decision to become a missionary doctor.
Isaac has served as Captain of the NNU Men’s Cross Country and Track teams where he led weekly devotionals. Isaac also served as President of the NNU Pre-Health Club and offered academic and interview help to underclassmen who are pursuing careers in medicine.
We look forward to what God has in store for this young man.
