LTS names Presidential Scholar

Master of Divinity student Jessica Braxton is the 2019-20 Presidential Scholarship recipient. The award is a four-year, full-tuition scholarship.

Braxton graduated from Barton College in May of 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in Religion and Philosophy. She began her studies at LTS in August. Currently, she serves Mill Creek Christian Church in Bentonville, N.C., as their interim minister and is “loving every second of it,” as Braxton describes it. She was a Disciple from youth at Bethel Christian Church and Ayden Christian Church. Camp Caroline in Arapahoe, N.C., is where she truly felt a call to ministry and where she began her discernment process. She hopes to work in congregational ministry and one day pursue Military Chaplaincy. When she’s not doing homework or working with the church, you can find her at a coffee shop or taking spontaneous, middle-of-the-week road trips.
