Hope College seniors Camille Borst of Allendale and Katelyn Lengacher of Nappanee, Ind., have each received the Servant Leader Award presented by the college’s Center for Faithful Leadership.
The awards were presented on Saturday, Jan. 18, at the Richard and Helen DeVos Fieldhouse during halftime of the college’s home men’s basketball game with Olivet College.
The college’s Center for Faithful Leadership provides academic courses for students in leadership, runs a student consulting program and equips students with entrepreneurial development opportunities. The Servant Leader Award is designed to honor students who serve their community but also have a lasting impact. Recipients are chosen from among students invited to apply for the award after having been nominated by others.
Borst is a nursing major and member of the college’s chapter of the Sigma Theta Tau nursing honorary society. A member of the college’s cross country and track and field teams, she served as a co-captain of the cross country team this past fall, and was praised for the way she encourages and supports her teammates.
Borst is the daughter of Douglas and Annette Borst of Allendale. She is a 2010 graduate of Allendale High School.
Lengacher is a biology major and aspiring physician. In addition to her involvement with the department of biology, she is active in the college’s Campus Ministries program, with activities including leading a Bible study group and assisting the chaplain of discipleship in planning and organizing events for women. She has also served the community beyond Hope’s campus at The Rock and Engedi church.
