Annie Aeschbacher, a graduating senior at Whitworth University in Spokane, Wash., has won the 2012 Presbyterian Outlook Church-College Partnership Award.The competition was based on college seniors’ essays on the topic, “How my education at a PC(USA)-related college has shaped my faith and prepared me for significant service and leadership.”
Aeschbacher, who hails from Woodinville, Wash., earned a B.A. degree in Spanish.
