Donna Lynn Schmitzer Memorial Scholarship
Donna had so many talents and gifts.
This scholarship honors Donna Lynn Schmitzer, who was called to heaven by her Lord at an early age. Like the Apostle Paul, Donna, through most of her life, was afflicted with illness. Yet, she never wavered in her trust and devotion to Jesus. Many fellow students of hers, fifteen to twenty years later, attest to Donna living her faith and commitment to her Lord, even though she could not participate in many normal activities.

The blessing of Donna being able to attend a Christian Day School helped lay the foundation for her strong faith, with which she faced every day adversities adn with which she was sure, without a doubt, of her crown of glory awaiting her when God would call. Through this scholarship, we pray that more workers for the Lord's Kingdom can be trained to preach and teach that saving love of Jesus that Donna so happily professed.
