CRCDS is pleased to share the news that the American Association of University Women (AAUW) has awarded Master of Divinity student Laura Bachmann (CRCDS ’18) a Career Development Grant. These grants, which help women advance in their careers, were developed to promote education and equity for women and girls. Laura, who interned this year with South Presbyterian Church and its Acts of Faith model of ministry, is a member of the Presbytery of Genesee Valley of the Presbyterian Church (USA). She plans to continue exploring ways to bring justice issues to the forefront while building the church at a grassroots level. Laura says, “Winning this grant was a great honor. I feel especially grateful to have this extra support which allows me to explore innovative ministry opportunities I might not otherwise have been able to consider.” Congratulations, Laura!
