Academic & Extracirricular Highlights:

  • 3.64 College GPA


“I was a senior in high school for the school year of 2021-22 and started college this year. I have been very thankful for this scholarship, especially as an out of state student. At school, I have become involved in Operation Smile, serveUTK, and Alpha Delta Pi sorority, which have allowed for me to serve the Knoxville community in so many different ways. My sorority is likely my biggest involvement, and we’ve raised thousands of dollars for Ronald McDonald house, and we are also so fortunate to have the opportunity to serve them hands on at their Knoxville location.

As far as academics go, the first semester was all general education classes, but this semester I have the opportunity to take a once-a-week “Introduction to Law” class where each week there is a different lecturer, usually from the Tennessee Law School. I have really loved all my classes so far, but this one is my favorite. I feel confident in my career path and major.”
