Per our bylaws, the Nominating Committee presented a slate of qualified candidates at the March general membership meeting. A vote on the following candidates will be held at our April general membership meeting.

Rebecca Hughey | President 

Rebecca Hughey believes that families are the heart of the military

community. She is a champion for military spouses and families,

working to support them in achieving their goals by promoting

resiliency, unit support and a special sense of military community.


Rebecca currently serves as the Charitable Vice President for the Scott

Spouse Club Executive Board. As a member of the Scott Spouse Club,

she supports multiple organizations through volunteer service and

fundraising activities such as Wreaths Across America, local food

pantries, Scott AFB Unaccompanied Airmen support, Fisher House, the

base library, SSC Scholarship Trivia Night, and many others. In her

tenure as 2nd Vice President, she has helped the organization raise

thousands of dollars for our charitable causes. She oversees a large team

of board members and oversees all charitable committees. Previously,

she served as the Social Treasurer for Scott Spouse Club and participated as a general member.

In this position she has supported families, worked to increase unit support, and helped improve quality of life for families.


Rebecca is also involved in other capacities outside Scott Air Force Base. As a survivor of postpartum depression and anxiety, she saw a need within the military community for more support. She created a monthly support group for mothers suffering from postpartum mood disorders that reaches beyond the base community. Rebecca is a graduate student working on her Masters in Accounting at Southern New

Hampshire University, which she plans to use to benefit the US Military by working in a capacity that provides financial assistance to military service members and their families.


Rebecca is the spouse of Captain Matthew Hughey of the 375th Medical Group and mother to Margot. In

her free time, she enjoys traveling with her family, staying fit, baking, and giving back to her community.

Before moving to Scott, Rebecca was a Middle School Educator and Realtor in Indianapolis.

Michelle Fry | First Vice President  

Untitled design-3.jpg

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

Volunteer in the Physical Therapy Department at Fort Knox.

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

with friends.


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.
