Jessica Powell Loftis Scholarship for Acteens®
Jessica Loftis was a lot like most of you. She lived life to the fullest, active in school and church. She loved Acteens and participated in missions projects. On October 30, 1993, Jessica and her father were killed in a car accident. However, Jessica’s legacy lives on in the lives of other Acteens through the Jessica Powell Loftis Scholarship Fund for Acteens. Scholarships are given to provide training and leadership experiences for Acteens and their leaders, and may be used for academic preparation.
The Jessica Powell Loftis Scholarship for Acteens was established in January 1995 by WMU upon the initial gift by Miss Loftis’s mother and her grandparents. Scholarships are given to provide training and leadership experiences for Acteens and their leaders, and may be used for academic preparation.
To be eligible, you must be:
• An Acteen who plans to attend college and has completed the MissionsQuest program.
• An Acteen for at least one year who will attend an Acteens event.
• An Acteens leader who is pursuing academic or leadership training to lead an Acteens group.

Did you know that Acteens can be eligible for scholarships at many Southern Baptist colleges and universities? Often the scholarships are based on the Acteen’s participation in MissionsQuest, the individual achievement plan designed especially for Acteens.
