Samantha Burks serves as the admissions counselor for the Southeast and students transferring from the James River Leadership Campus. A native of West Memphis, Arkansas, she graduated in May 2012 with a major in Music and minors in Psychology and Biblical Studies.
As an Evangel student, Samantha was involved in leading worship in Chapel, singing in the chorus and serving as a Spence Hall residence assistant. One of the highlights of her time at Evangel was her coronation as the 2011-2012 Homecoming Queen. She also has fond memories of Spiritual Emphasis Weeks, President Spence’s birthday buffets and late-night conversations with the girls on her floor.
Samantha says the best thing about Evangel is the people. “I’ve had the incredible opportunity to meet some amazing people throughout my years at Evangel,” she says. “The friendships I had made a huge impact on my life and will be something that I carry with me for the rest of my life.”
Along with being an admissions counselor, Samantha is also a credentialed Assemblies of God minister. In her free time, Samantha enjoys hanging out with her friends, reading, camping and spending time outdoors.
