TCU honors local girl
From Staff Reports
Texas Christian University senior Effie Husbands has been named winner of the inaugural 2014 Faith & Service Award given by Dallas-based Juliette Fowler Communities.
The award is given to a TCU student who has demonstrated leadership, excellence, and a humanitarian spirit that reflect the life and legacy of the organization’s legendary namesake, Juliette Peak Fowler.
Juliette Fowler Communities was founded as a not-for-profit organization more than 120 years ago to fulfill the vision of Dallas pioneer Juliette Peak Fowler to create a faith-based community for the elderly and children.
Effie is the daughter of Mary Scopas and Charles Husbands of San Marcos. She is a senior nursing major at TCU. She grew up attending First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in San Marcos and is currently a member at Ridglea Christian Church in Fort Worth.
Effie has been an active member of Disciples on Campus and serves as a tour guide to prospective students.
Working as a patient care assistant at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Effie hopes to become an emergency room nurse and, one day, a nurse practitioner.
Juliette Fowler Communities will present the award to Effie at its 2014 Visionary Women Luncheon on May 13 at the Omni Dallas Hotel.
