Welcome to ASF’s Student Spotlight page!
Check back here often to read about our residents that are living in Asher Houses around the country. Periodically, we’ll also be featuring Asher alumni or LAC members.
This month, meet Donna Huston, a member of the Local Advisory Council at Asher House, Tallahassee!
Donna Huston (LAC) – Asher House, Tallahassee
“The Asher idea is a right idea,” exclaims Donna Huston, a member of the Local Advisory Council (LAC) at Asher House, Tallahassee in Florida. “It’s a divine idea, so it is complete and includes everything necessary for fulfillment and success. It’s a blessing!” This month, we are delighted to spotlight Donna and the Tallahassee LAC.
Donna grew up in Tallahassee and graduated from Florida State University with a degree in finance and accounting. Although she has lived in several different places, including Alabama, Georgia, and other parts of Florida, she loves Tallahassee and always returns. Donna worked as a CPA for many years before retiring last summer. She now enjoys spending time with her children and young grandchildren, and is an active birder and gardener.
The LAC at Asher House, Tallahassee, like all Asher LACs, consists of a group of volunteers, like Donna, from the local Christian Science community. It offers an “on-the-ground network” of support and resources to the House Manager and student-residents. LAC responsibilities include metaphysically supporting Asher Student Foundation and the local house, backing up the House Manager as needed, being available as mentors to the residents, and looking for opportunities to represent and promote Asher in the community. LACs play a key role in the success of Asher Houses around the country.
Donna has been a dedicated member of the Tallahassee LAC for nearly 10 years because she loves to support the Asher House residents. She especially enjoys the quarterly LAC meetings at the House that are usually coupled with lunch with the House Manager and catching up with the residents. Her prayers include the idea that Asher provides a sense of home, harmony, security and support to all its residents. The metaphysical work that Donna and the Tallahassee LAC have done has certainly been effective: the house is at full capacity and thriving!
Thank you, Donna and the rest of the members of the Tallahassee LAC (and all Asher LACs), for the wonderful support that you provide to Asher Student Foundation!
