Letters regarding the “Hoʻi I Ka Piko” Scholarship
Dear Friends at Keawalaʻi Congregational Church,
On behalf of the Cal Lutheran community, I send you greetings from the University. Your financial support of Ryan Brem through the Congregational Partners in Education (CPE) program is evidence of your support for this student’s pursuit of higher education.
The benefits of directing your money in support of this member in this way are numerous. First, your gift is matched dollar for dollar up to $2,500 by the University, which maximizes your faithful effort to make a wise investment in this student’s future. This award also allows congregations to support young people who have demonstrated a commitment to the life and work of that congregation and allows the University to show its support for those efforts.
At the very core of California Lutheran University’s mission is the mentoring and education of leaders who are “strong in character and judgment, confident in their identity and vocation, and committed to service and justice.” We believe that a college of the Church provides an excellent setting for the development of such future leadership for our society. Your contribution to the Congregational Partners in Education program is an affirmation of that conviction and a strong sign of support for this member of your congregation.
The Rev. Arne Bergland
Director of Church Relations
California Lutheran University
Thousand Oaks, California
