The Linda S. Campanella Scholarship
The servant of Christ gives without counting the cost. The servant leader gives as though their organization, and every person in it, might themselves be Christ. Linda Sachsse Campanella is a model of Christian servanthood and servant leadership.
For 11 years, Linda served the Andover Newton Board of Trustees with wisdom and faithfulness. For the last four, a season of dramatic change for the historic theological school, she has served as chair. Linda is also a faithful member of the Asylum Hill Congregational Church. She and her husband Joe raised their three adult children in the church, and Linda held key leadership roles, including that of Moderator.
Linda is a management consultant serving the nonprofit and higher education sectors who supports organizations in strategic planning, governance, marketing, and fundraising. She is the owner and principal of SOS Consulting Group, LLC. Before launching her consulting practice, Linda was a senior vice president and chief administrative officer at Trinity College in Hartford, CT; this following many years in the private sector.
Linda wrote the award-winning memoir When All That’s Left of Me is Love: A Daughter’s Story of Letting Go about walking with her mother through life’s final stages. She is a passionate advocate for compassionate end-of-life care and values creating supportive environments for conversations about death and dying.
Among her many commitments to service, Linda has significant knowledge and excitement for fundraising. She was the founding chair of the Andover Newton board’s Development and Outreach Committee, and for more than a decade she proposed and supported measures that professionalized the school’s approach to fundraising. As she was rotating out of the role of Chair of Andover Newton’s board, staff and trustees were pleased to announce the creation of an endowed scholarship in Linda’s name.
Through this Linda S. Campanella Scholarship, an Andover Newton at YDS student will receive funding each year, along with a letter telling them that they have received a financial benefit named for Linda. They will already have reaped the benefits of Linda’s leadership by virtue of the fact they are receiving a world-class education in ministerial leadership through Andover Newton at Yale.
