It is with great pleasure that the Pooler Lions Club announces the winner of the 2019 $1000 College Scholarship. Annie Twibell of Pooler received the scholarship check at the April 23rd Pooler Lions Club Meet and Greet at Lovezzola’s Restaurant. Annie is a home schooled student and has also been enrolled at Point University during her senior year, earning 38 college credits and maintaining a 4.0 average.
Annie has volunteered for a variety of activities at the First Presbyterian Church in Pooler and has been secretary for the Point University Student Body Committee. She plays the cello, took judo lessons for eight years and dance lessons for four years. Her work experience includes childcare, maintenance worker, head waitress and sous chef. She was selected as the Chatham County Representative for the 2019 Distinguished Young Women Program at the local and state levels, where she was selected by her peers as the Spirit winner.
Annie has been accepted at Georgia Southern University as a nursing student and stated in her application, “Nursing has been a dream of mine since I was fifteen. I have always marveled at the beauty of life and the precious form it takes through infants. As a future nursing student I long to help mothers bring new life into the world. All of my life my parents have taught me the importance of respect, responsibility and caring for others. Nursing will provide me with that opportunity. C.S. Lewis once said to not think less of yourself, but to think of yourself less.”
The Lions Club International motto is “We Serve” and the Pooler Lions are proud to award this scholarship to a young woman who understands service. Ms. Twibell stated, “Community service has reminded me how blessed I am and how great the need is for caring for others. It has inspired me to give back to my community and my country. Every small deed counts, and my mother always told me, we should be intentional in our actions for the service of others and for the ultimate glory of God. Community service has inspired me to work even harder for nursing school so I can best prepare myself to give back to my family, community and country.”
