Decatur, GA.—Leah Ruth Hrachovec, member of First Presbyterian Church in Owasso, OK, received the Master of Divinity degree and was presented the Harold J. Riddle Memorial Book Award and the Columbia Graduate Fellowship on May 14 during commencement exercises of Columbia Theological Seminary. The Riddle Award is given to a Master of Divinity student who has shown high distinction in the field of pastoral care, especially with terminally ill patients. The Columbia Graduate Fellowship is awarded annually to a student who has demonstrated exceptional academic ability. The fellowship may be applied to any advanced degree beyond the Master of Divinity. Hrachovec, who holds the B.A. from Grinnell College in Grinnell, IA, begins a two-year residency as a Lake Fellow at Second Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis, IN, this fall. Hrachovec is one of 92 students who received diplomas from one of Columbia’s five degree programs during commencement exercises. Columbia Theological Seminary, established in 1828, is one of 10 theological institutions of the Presbyterian Church (USA). xxx
