Andrea Martinez Matey is the summer intern at Newnan Presbyterian Church.

She is a familiar face to many of NPC members who have had the opportunity to serve on our mission trips to Mexico and through the church’s work with Seguidores de Cristo in Sitpach.

Martinez Matey, 20, is the granddaughter of a Presbyterian pastor. Since she was a little girl, has shadowed him on his visits to the many churches in which he served. 

From Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, Martinez Matey is currently enrolled in her third semester at San Pablo Presbyterian Seminary and serves at Seguidores de Cristo in Sitpach.

Martinez Matey has been actively involved with Newnan Presbyterian’s mission trips since
2014, when she first began helping Dr. Kay Crosby with translations for her medical clinics. She has also actively worked with the other missionaries, in particular, as a translator for Bible School.

Her work with NPC eventually led her to assist missionaries from other churches and presbyteries.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church has awarded the Mary Kate Parks Mason Scholarship to five students.

Mason was a long-term St. Paul's parishioner who was a champion of young people as a friend and teacher and believed very strongly that adults must do all in their power to open doors of opportunity for young men and women.

Mason left a bequest to establish a scholarship fund at St. Paul's for young women and men seeking the benefits of a higher education.

This year’s scholarship recipients are Madison Brown, University of West Georgia; Peyton Hopkins, Montana State University; Stella Janas, University of Mississippi; Sarah Paschal, Georgia Institute of Technology; and Elise Wendelburg, Rollins College.
