   Title: Doing homework pays off for AU student

Little did AU student Cara Warfield, a native of Alexandria, IN, know that for once, doing her homework would pay off. Literally. She was recently notified by the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities that she was the recipient of the 2001 Carl F.H. Henry Scholarship in the amount of $5,000. Founded in 1990 by the AMY Foundation of Lansing, Mich., the scholarship is awarded annually to a student who writes and has published an article in the mainstream media. The article must demonstrate how biblical truth relates to an issue of public interest. The Council for Christian Colleges & Universities coordinates the scholarship.

Warfield's winning article addressed the effect neglect has on children. Titled "Nurture the Gift of Parenthood," her writing was published in the Herald Bulletin in, Indiana.

The contest is open to full-time undergraduate students at CCCU colleges and universities.

The AMY Foundation also sponsors the prestigious AMY Writing Awards. Mr. James Russell, founder and president of the AMY Foundation, created both awards out of his concern for the seeming anti-biblical bias in the national media.

The scholarship is named for world-renowned evangelical theologian and author Dr. Carl F.H. Henry, founding editor of the magazine Christianity Today.

The Council for Christian Colleges & Universities is an association of 101 member institutions, all with comprehensive curricula rooted in the arts and sciences, and committed to the integration of scholarship, biblical faith and service.

Anderson University (Anderson, IN) is a private, four-year, Christian liberal arts institution of approximately 2,400 undergraduate and graduate students. Established in 1917 by the Church of God, the university offers over 60 undergraduate majors and graduate programs of study in theology, business and education.
