William Jewell College has announced the recipients of the John and Mary Pritchard Humanitarian Service Award recipients for 2007. This year’s award winners are Julie Bramon of Columbia, Mo., and Lauren Hale of Tulsa, Okla.

Bramon is a junior art major at William Jewell. She plans to work for six weeks this summer with the Peace Rehabilitation Center (PRC) in Kathmandu, Nepal. PRC is Nepal’s first official AIDS hospice and a leading anti-trafficking organization. While at PRC, Bramon will conduct art therapy sessions for the women at the rehabilitation home and will use her experience as a nurse’s aid in the AIDS hospice. She will also serve as an English teacher, helping the women and girls develop writing and speaking skills.

Hale is a first-year student at William Jewell pursuing a major in International Relations with a double minor in Spanish and Non-Profit Leadership. She plans to live in Antigua, Guatemala, for two months this summer working with Escuela Integrada de Los Ninos Trabajodores, teaching English to children in grades one through four. Hale will also teach art classes to fourth-grade children. Escuela Integrada provides education to children who cannot afford to attend school. The school also provides children with daily nutrition, free medical attention, medicine and counseling.

The Pritchard Humanitarian Service Award is provided by and named for the founders and nurturers of Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City, a provider of affordable housing for low-income families. For more than two decades, the Pritchards sought strong and effective ways to interact with people in need. The award goes annually to William Jewell students who commit to engaging with people in need, developing relationships with people different from themselves in all fundamental aspects while learning about their own unique gifts and calling.
