Truett Sparkman

The Albert Baker Fund (ABF) Board of Trustees is delighted to announce the Adam Messer Sustainability Scholarship to recognize his 9-years of inspired service to our Board and the ABF community.

“This special scholarship in Adam’s name is a fitting tribute to his deep commitment to our students and ABF’s mission to serve Christian Scientists,” said Alistair Savides, Chair of the Board. “We are excited to name Truett Sparkman, a first year Master’s student in Environmental Management at the Yale School of the Environment, as the recipient. Truett is a dedicated Christian Scientist, an accomplished student, and plans a career in corporate sustainability, where he will focus on helping businesses design and implement innovative processes to help sustain the environment.”

Truett recently shared with us his gratitude for the support of ABF and his Christian Science community, saying, “The inspiration and feeling of Love shared within my Christian Science network is both motivating and sustaining. I’m so grateful to ABF for investing in me as an influence for good in the world.”

Alistair added, “Congratulations, Truett! This scholarship is well-deserved and I’m sure you will do great things for mankind.”
