First Presbyterian Church Member Receives Book Fund Award at Columbia Seminary Commencement
Decatur, GA.—Stacy Jennifer Welsh, a member of First Presbyterian Church in Kirkwood, MO, received the Master of Divinity degree and was presented the James T. and Celeste M. Boyd Book Fund Award on May 14 during commencement exercises of Columbia Theological Seminary. The Boyd Book Fund Award is given to a Master of Divinity student who, in the judgment of the faculty, would be a good steward of a theological library and has demonstrated a desire through studies to build a personal theological library. Welsh who is from St. Louis, MO, holds the B.A. from Millikin University in Decatur, IL, and the A.M. from Washington University in St. Louis, MO. This fall she begins a year-long residency in clinical pastoral education at St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield, MO. Welsh is one of 92 students who received diplomas from one of Columbia’s five degree programs during commencement exercises. Columbia Theological Seminary, founded in 1828, is one of 10 theological institutions of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
