We Have Selected a Blessing Hands Intern.

Megan Mraz, daughter of Chuck and Joni Mraz of Morehead, has been selected as Blessing Hands’ Morehead State University intern for the summer and fall of 2007. Megan is a junior at MSU majoring in Elementary Education. She is interested in photography, art, theatre, science, languages, reading, tutoring, and being with people. All these hobbies and abilities will serve Megan well when she travels to Yangshuo, China for two and one half weeks next summer to represent Blessing Hands.

Megan will be visiting schools and meeting the children that Blessing Hands supports in Yangshuo. She will also meet the college students that Blessing Hands pays tuition for at Guangxi Normal University. Megan will be participating in a service project, living with a Chinese family, and perhaps teach an English class or two.

When Megan returns to the USA, she will advocate for the Blessing Hands students on the MSU campus and assist Blessing Hands with various projects and duties as a fall intern. She will be getting a grade for her service under the supervision of the Morehead State University School of Education and Blessing Hands.

A fund to help pay for Megan’s summer travel expenses has been established at the MSU Foundation, and supporters are encouraged to make tax deductible contributions by mailing their donations to the Blessing Hands Internship Fund at the MSU Foundation, Palmer Development House, Morehead, Ky 40351.
