Philip L. Huizenga
This scholarship was established by Philip L. Huizenga in honor and recognition of his sisters, Ann Huizenga, Myrtle Wells, Eunice Odom, Faith Hondorp, and his wife, Marie Houtman Huizenga, for the love, care and guidance they provided to him while he was growing up and during his marriage to Marie. Dr. and Mrs. Lee S. Huizenga were CRC medical missionaries to China from October 20, 1920 to the end of World War II in 1945. Philip became part of their family as an infant in June of 1938 when he was “rescued” from a Shanghai orphanage by Myrtle who worked there as a nurse. The Huizenga household was very busy but in spite of their schedules and the hardships inherent with being a medical missionary family in a foreign land, they made time to take into their lives a newborn. The scholarship is intended to assist women students pursuing careers in the fields of medicine and social work with an interest in missions or service work. Thanks be to God!
