Samantha Hatch received a $3,000 USA Funds/ThanksUSA scholarship to continue a Christian Ministries major at San Diego Christian College.
A proud Navy spouse and mother of two, Samantha will enter Seminary school after completing her undergraduate studies. “After Seminary I plan to enlist in the United States Navy as a chaplain. I want nothing more than to be on the front lines with the Bible in my hand and love in my heart.”
Samantha has devoted much of her free time to supporting military families. She is Vice President of the San Diego Chief Petty Officer Spouse Association, volunteers with Fleet and Family Support, and serves as Receptionist for the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society. Most recently, Samantha became Welcome Committee Chairperson for the San Diego chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution.
“There are no words to truly express the amount of gratitude I have for USA Fuds and all ThanksUSA donors. This scholarship award provided such a huge financial relief to our family and we will not overlook this amazing gift. On behalf of everyone that will be touched by this blessing, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. May everyone involved with ThanksUSA know how grateful I am!”
