Providence House Scholarship

Ruth C. Samuelson loved – and served – her state, her community, her church and her Lord. On January 23, 2017, Ruth entered into the presence of her Lord. Before her passing, Ruth and her family made arrangements for a significant gift to RTS Charlotte. This commitment, one of the largest scholarship gifts in the 25-year history of RTS Charlotte, will be used to create the Providence House Scholarship.

Ruth’s indomitable spirit, generosity, intellect and selflessness are well-known in Charlotte and beyond, as is her love for God, His word and His church. At RTS Charlotte, we are blessed to have had Ruth as a friend and we are very grateful to Ruth, Ken and the entire Samuelson family for their generosity to us.
