To help our high school seniors attend our quality schools, the Assemblies of God institutions and departments created the Riggs Scholarships, named after former General Superintendent Ralph Riggs, an early advocate for higher education in our AG Fellowship. Riggs, a formal faculty member at two of our colleges, believed that every high school graduate should have the opportunity to attend an AG endorsed college.
* For the Superintendent’s award to continue, the student must maintain a 3.5 GPA and continue attendance and active involvement in an AG church while enrolled in school.
Erin Gaddis, daughter of James and Tammy Gaddis, is a graduate of Steelville High School in Steelville, Mo., and is attending Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, Texas.
"I am sincerely thankful for the AGTrust partners and scholarship committee who provided me this scholarship," Gaddis says. "Because of your generosity, I am attending Southwestern. God has certainly shown me favor during this time of transition in my life, and I can't wait to see what He has in store for my future."
Mason Rozean, son of Rev. Eric and Shelley Rozean, is a graduate of Kearney High School in Kearny, Neb., and is attending Evangel University in Springfield, Mo.
At his local church, Rozean is a member of the youth preaching team and drama teen children's ministry and a worship leader. He plans to major in church ministry.
"The class structure for each and every ministry major at Evangel is designed for the purpose of sending the student out ready to be a minster," Rozean says. "I look forward to receiving the education that best prepares me for my life's calling to the ministry."
