Samantha Fischer started with the board in March of 2015.
She works as Staff Accountant for Mayer, Porter & Nelson, LTD. Samantha is also involved with the Todd County, Minn., Area Jaycees, where she’s served as treasurer and secretary. She previously served as treasurer of Crew from 2008-2012, and as a member and coordinator of Alternative Break Experience in 2011 and 2012. She received her BA from College of St. Benedict.
She said she was interested in board service due to her belief that everyone should graduate with as little debt as possible.
“I understand the additional stress having a job creates,” she said. “I feel that ‘workhorse’ scholars do not get recognized enough for their hard work and think a scholarship is a great way to recognize them for their commitment to getting an education.”
