Michelle Fry | First Vice President
Michelle Fry was born and raised in rural North Dakota. She
met her husband Dan through mutual friends during her college
years, although they attended rival schools. Marrying a
servicemember and living all around the world may not have
initially been in her plans, but the experience has been
wonderful and rewarding in ways Michelle had never imagined.
She married Dan a week after her college graduation, and they
spent their honeymoon driving to Columbus AFB, Mississippi,
Dan’s first assignment on active duty. They are now
approaching their 19th wedding anniversary and, in their
journey together, have completed nine PCS moves. They have
four children: Toby, high school sophomore; Zach, 8th grade;
Matt, 5th grade; and Isabella, 3rd grade.
Joining Scott Spouses’ Club became a great avenue for friendship for Michelle when her family moved to Illinois in 2021, and she is grateful for the club members who were so welcoming at the first social she attended. She has enjoyed serving on the Board of Governors as Parliamentarian the past two years, and in her desire to keep serving, is ready to take on the challenge of 1st Vice President.
When she’s not attending an SSC event or assisting in the library at her children’s school, you’ll likely find Michelle out at the soccer fields, cheering on her children as they do what they love. While her faith and her family will always remain her priorities, Michelle also enjoys reading, writing, and running. One of her favorite memories from her time living overseas was crossing the finish line at the Athens Marathon in November 2018. Training for and running that race was a grueling experience, but crossing the finish line in the ancient Greek stadium brought her to tears when she realized her hard work and dedication had brought her to that moment. Life is not always easy, but the result of perseverance is worth celebrating.

Margaret Johnson | Charitable Treasurer
Margaret Johnson is from Hampton, VA. She has been an Army spouse for 14 years, adventuring thus far to 9 duty locations. She met her husband, Brian, at Campbell University where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. If you speak to her for any length of time, you’ll know that she’s crazy about her daughters, Katherine (6) and Juliana (4). She enjoys early morning Bible study
followed by workouts in her garage gym with her husband
and evenings with hot tea and a good book.
One of the things she loves about the spouse’s club is that it’s an opportunity to make friends instantly while also serving the community. Scott Spouse’s Club has the warmest, most welcoming members. The mini clubs she’s enjoyed being a part of are the wellness club, lunch bunch, craft club, and coffee and conversations. It’s a great opportunity to get to know members better and form closer friendships. She is applying to take the treasurer position because she would like to be more involved in giving back to the community through this organization. Her work ethic can be summarized by Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.” Her previous spouse’s club volunteer experiences include Scholarship Chair at Fort Stewart and Ways and Means at Fort Knox. General volunteer experiences include Battalion
Senior Spouse Advisor for Division Sustainment Troops Battalion at Fort Stewart, Master Resilience Trainer in Grafenwohr, Germany, Family Readiness Group leader in Germany, and Red Cross

Jill Akins | Secretary
Jill Akins has been married to her husband, Isaac, for 17 years.
They have three children: Piper (15), Bria (14), and Bo (9). She
is originally from a small town in Indiana where she learned
the importance of supporting her community and has always
sought to do so. In her spare time, when she is not
chauffeuring her children to and from their activities, she
enjoys running, reading, cooking, volunteering, and being
Before moving to Scott AFB, She worked at a large retirement
community, Swiss Village Inc., as a Healthcare Office manager
for 15 years (2005-2021). In this position, Jill worked closely with several different departments throughout the facility. Once a month she would record the minutes for the Healthcare council meetings. Each quarter,
she was in charge of recording the minutes, compiling, creating, and distributing the reports for the Quality Assurance and Assessment Committee meetings. Since May 2022, she has served as the Administrative Coordinator for the Protestant Women of the Chapel. The duties of this position are very similar to that of the SSC Secretary such as taking the minutes for all board meetings, answering/sending emails, and recording all volunteer hours each month.
Her family is fairly new to the military, as her husband has only been active duty for about 2 years. When they arrived at Scott in May 2021, she realized how much they had to learn about military life. One place she has learned quite a bit is by attending the Scott Spouses’ Club. One thing she really loves about the Scott Spouses’ Club are the Mini Clubs. There is a club offered for just about any hobby or interest you have. It is a great way to get to know the members on a more personal level, relax, have fun together, and become
familiar with the surrounding communities and what they have to offer. The Scott Spouses’ Club continues to have a positive impact on Jill’s military experience and she is excited to pay that forward to other military families.
