Three students at Southern Adventist University were awarded the 2021-2022 Rita Vital Endowed Scholarship for Faith and Service-Learning last week.
Chosen for demonstrating a deep desire to serve others during their time in college, this year’s honorees are junior business administration majors Sarah Velez and Justin Tanguay, along with junior finance major Jared Chandler.
The scholarship was established by Southern alum and State Representative Greg Vital to honor his mother, Rita Vital, and her dedication to service and Christian education.
