LeAnn Marie Santiago Scholarship Fund


The reason for the LeAnn Marie Santiago Scholarship Fund is to honor her Christlike example in every phase of her life. From our early days of courtship through the unfolding years of motherhood (while our children were still in the womb, she would read to them about the love of Christ) and a spouse she exemplified the fruit of the Spirit like no one I have ever known. When deciding whether to follow the call to pastoral ministry she was not only there to support the decision but encouraged me that it was the right one. Her desire to honor God gave here the strength to leave the comfort and security of her familiar surroundings and venture out not really knowing how things were going to work out. She had a strong faith and even a stronger godly love that flowed out to her family and all whom she associated with. While at Southwestern we received a scholarship award that came at a most critical juncture, and I will never forget the joy in her heart and praise on her lips for how God had provided once again! I know that LeAnn would be in full support of the decision to establish a scholarship fund and would be there to encourage it to be done because it is the right one. LeAnn took great joy in being a blessing to others and I pray that her legacy can in some small way be carried on through the establishment of the LeAnn Marie Santiago Scholarship Fund.
