Scott and Valerie Hanson receive Faith and Service Award
ROCKLIN, Calif., - Scott and Valerie Hanson, were honored at William Jessup University’s 6th Annual University Fund Dinner. The couple received the Faith and Service Award, presented to honor their commitment to Christian faith and education as well as recognize their exemplary professionalism, leadership, volunteer, humanitarian and philanthropic service locally and globally.
Pastor Brad Franklin of Lakeside Church in Folsom paid tribute to the couple, sharing stories of their service to a crowd of 350 people.
Scott is a senior partner and founding principal of Hanson McClain Advisors Inc. A nationally known financial expert, Scott has been identified by Investment Advisor magazine as one of the 25 most influential people in the financial services industry nationwide.
Featured in The Wall Street Journal, Kiplinger’s, and on various news channels, Scott is the author of Money Matters: Essential Tips & Tools for Building Financial Peace of Mind. He also co-hosts a weekly call –in talk radio show on NewsTalk 1530 KFBK covering investment and financial topics.
Scott serves on the board of the Sacramento Regional Community Foundation, the Pride Industries Foundation and the advisory board of the Salvation Army. He and Valerie support over 20 organizations.
After working at Intel, Valerie became a full-time mother dedicated to raising the couples’ two children. During this time, she followed her passion to develop a vibrant women’s ministry at Lakeside Church where she served as Director of Women’s Ministries for six years.
Scott and Valerie have participated in missions to Costa Rica, China, Mexico, Russia and within New York’s inner city. Additionally, the Hanson’s partnered with World Venture in Colorado to aid in making an idea become a reality.
The result was a self-sustaining business involving a 10,000 chicken farm in Maputo, Mozambique allowing profits to be invested back into the farm and the local region.
Married for 18 years, the couple met while attending Chico State University.
All proceeds from the event benefit student scholarships. WJU is the first and only WASC accredited private, four-year residential university to have its main campus located in the greater Sacramento area.
