Serve Medford

in the city for the city

At “Redemption Hill Church”, we ask if we had to close our doors today, would our city even take notice?  As a community of faith, we seek to add value to the life of our city, beyond the four walls of our gatherings, through a corporate lifestyle that we call “SERVE Medford”.  Extending beyond a special day or a specific program, it is an attitude of considering the needs of others and then taking action with our heads, hearts, and hands to make a difference. 

Check out some of our yearly efforts below! If there is a tangible way we can serve you or your business or if you would like to more information about partnering with us in the Medford community, please contact us!

Serve Medford Scholarship

We see many students in our city dedicated to bettering their lives through education and serving others through community service. We want to recognize students who live out the “SERVE Medford” lifestyle contributing to our community. Because acting with compassion towards others is a value recognized by all of us, this scholarship is open to all students regardless of any specific faith tradition.

The SERVE Medford Scholarship Committee will review applications to select two graduating seniors to receive:
- SERVE Medford Scholarship: $3,500
- Honorable Mention: $1,500

Congratulations to our 2023 winners. 

Baban Gill, $3,500, SERVE Medford Scholar

  • And if you haven’t been impressed so far, let me tell you about our first-ever SERVE Medford Scholar. She has been the life behind an initiative called Seeds to Feed, growing fresh fruits and vegetables right here at Medford High. The produce is donated to the Mystic Community Market, a food pantry run by the Mystic Valley YMCA. One of her teachers shared that the project was successful because of her exceptional dedication and follow-through, never missing a delivery promised to the market. Her leadership and labor tangibly help our neighbors facing food insecurity.

Danny Diskin, $1,500, Runner-Up

  • This year’s runner up for the SERVE Medford Scholarship has dabbled in all sorts of community service. From teaching sports camps in the summertime to volunteering at food drives, and from tutoring elementary school students to being a lifeguard at the local Y, this student truly has a heart for serving others. The review committee was impressed with his commitment to volunteering even when he gets to college this fall, and he’s even researched the organizations at school that he wants to volunteer with.

Vaibhav Saini, $1,000, Honorable Mention

  • Our next awardee has served the community in many ways from behind a computer. He was instrumental in developing an app called “Shovelers” for residents to find people to help shovel snow in the winter and also a key designer of the district’s website. Though programming and web development may seem less tangible than being out in the community, this student made meaningful connections with many others through his community service.

Lorena Ferrera, $1,000, Honorable Mention

  • This next awardee brought her authentic self to school. Whether it’s by connecting with students through Common Ground or organizing Diversity Week to spark unity among the student body, she recognized the importance of relationships in all that she has done. We were impressed with her enthusiasm for creating change by making new friendships and inspiring others with her concern for other people.

Teagan Mustone, $1,000, Honorable Mention

  • Some of you may know her as the Drum Major of the marching band. But, she wears many more hats than that. She has been involved in Model UN, as an MHS tour guide, and directed the Democracy Drive where hundreds of students were registered to vote. She has, time and again, used her voice to engage her peers and the administration here at MHS for the better.

Applications for the 2024 SERVE Medford Scholarship will be open in February 2024.
