#Play4Sam collection was created
to honor Samuel John Hanna '24

Sales from #Play4Sam merchandise will support The Samuel John Hanna '24 Memorial Fund at Independence.

Established in 2023 by family and friends to honor Samuel John Hanna ‘24, an Independence School student from 2017 (2nd Grade) until his return to God over Christmas, 2022, the Fund will provide partial scholarship(s), to a rising seventh-grade student who best exemplifies the wonderful qualities of Sam and his connection to people.

A brave, passionate, and resilient young man, Sam enriched the lives of everyone he touched with his attributes of kindness, love, humility, joy, faith, wisdom, and determination. Sam’s grace and love of life was gifted to his family and friends, along with the lessons he taught us, measured well beyond his 13 years. Sam was a spiritual warrior who modeled humility, team spirit, integrity, and happiness. #Play4Sam #Live4Sam #Love4Sam

In addition to the scholarship, the Fund will also provide support for the Character Development Program (CDP), the Athletics Program, and/or the Economics & Entrepreneurial Education Program (E3) at Independence.
