Marge Hollingsworth School Adoption Award

 
The Three Rivers Chapter has established a new award to both honor the chapter's first director, Mrs. Marge Hollingsworth, and local churches which have faithfully adopted a school to establish after-school Good News Club. Marge was a godly woman with a deep passion to see boys and girls come to the Lord Jesus for salvation. She worked tirelessly and has left us with a heritage of love and faithfulness.
 
In order to express gratitude to local churches for their work in our public schools with Good News Clubs, the Marge Hollingsworth School Adoption Award, will be presented each spring to the churches which have completed five consecutive years of ministry.
 
 
On May 13, 2011, the first two awards were presented:
 
        First Baptist Church of Morris, Illinois for 15 years of service to the children of  Morris Public Schools.
 
Members of First Baptist Church with Mr. Paul Hollingsworth (Marge's son)
 
        Second Baptist Church of Joliet, Illinois for 10 years of service to the children of Joliet Schools.
