Community Congregational Church of Elburn announces scholarship winner

in Faith/Hometown by

ELBURN—Community Congregational Church (CCC) of Elburn is proud to announce that Jeremy Fairve is the winner of its scholarship, awarded on June 14. The scholarship is open to youth who have been active in the church and have graduated from high school within the past two years.

The scholarship was formerly known as the Bob Miller Scholarship. Bob loved Elburn, the church and children. He believed that the education of every child—be it spiritual, intellectual or social—is the responsibility of every adult, whether they are the child’s parent or not. Because of these loves and beliefs, Bob Miller gave as much time to the community, church, School District and children as his busy career allowed. The Elburn congregation will carry on the mission of the Bob Miller Scholarship by re-establishing it for the benefit of its youth.

Fairve is a Kaneland High School graduate who currently attends Waubonsee Community College. He has been very active in the church, especially working with the youth group. He has been invaluable in keeping contact with CCC youth and aiding in the youth group ministry. The church prays that he will continue in his journey of faith at the church, and wishes him many blessings and success in his future endeavors.
