Two William Jewell College students have received the first Projects for Justice and Sustainability Grants through the College's Center for Justice and Sustainability.

Alaina Barclay, a junior non-profit leadership major from Kansas City, Mo., received a grant to travel to Mozambique, Africa for three weeks this summer to work at the Carolina Belshe Orphanage. Her experience in community service includes serving at homeless shelters, cleaning debris from buildings and tutoring youth. She has worked with the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, Ronald McDonald House, the Ali Kemp Educational Foundation and the Friends of Parkville Animal Shelter.

Abigail Pratt, a sophomore religion major from Liberty, Mo., received a grant to travel to central and eastern Uganda for three weeks with a group of undergraduate students sponsored by the "student.go" program of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Pratt is in the Pryor Leadership Studies Program; serves on the Christian Student Ministries cabinet; and is a member of the women's tennis team, the handbell choir, and the sorority Alpha Gamma Delta. She has participated in service trips to Helena, Ark.; Pearlington, Miss.; and the Cheyenne River Lakota Reservation in South Dakota.
