WAVERLY TWP. — Tyler Johnson, son of Jennifer Johnson, of Clarks Summit, is the 2017-2018 recipient of the Bonnie D. Huber (Helen Huber) and Ferdinand V. Grayson Scholarship, established by the Waverly United Methodist Church.
Recipients are chosen based on their scholarship ability, leadership qualities, Christian activities and service. Applicants are judged by the Waverly United Methodist Scholarship Committee contingent upon their college enrollment, participation in a United Methodist Church in NEPA and a GPA of at least 3.0.
The amount and number of scholarships awarded each year is dependent upon the number of applications received and the monies available. Preference is given to active participants of the Waverly United Methodist Church.
Johnson is pursuing a degree in Physical Therapy at Clarks Summit University. He chose this specialty because of his interest in the inner workings of the human body and the potential to help those who have been injured or who are in the process of recovering from an injury. He also feels his natural patience can help foster personal relationships with his patients. Those relationships will allow him to better encourage his patients and use each interaction as a ministry opportunity.
