Project Inspire Scholarship Recipient Spotlight
Timothy Hill – Third-Year Student at University of Central Florida
At Project Inspire, we continue to be grateful for all that we’re able to do to support the students we’re serving. Our Project Inspire Scholarship recipients, who receive a $2,000 scholarship, are supported throughout their time in college through personal, professional, and academic development programs, including guidance on finances, college success strategies, career strategies, and more. We get to interact with them often and know how amazing they are, but we wanted to share their awesomeness with you, so we’ll be posting an update every few weeks to let you know how our amazing Project Inspire Scholarship recipients are doing.
Learn about the great things Timothy is doing below with an update that came directly from him along with a quick update from me about Timothy at the end of this post:
This semester, what organizations are you currently involved in on campus?
This semester, I currently serve as President of the UCF Chapter of the International City/County Management Association. Furthermore, I have recently been selected for the UCF Legislative Scholars Program. This program allows the opportunity to live in Tallahassee, to work at the Florida Capitol, and to serve a member of the Florida House of Representative or Florida Senate during the 2018 Legislative Session.
What community service have you participated in this semester?
This semester, I have participated in various volunteer events within the community. One specific event that I would like to highlight is the Volunteer UCF Knights Give Back event. This is the university’s largest volunteering event, and I had the opportunity to work with Keep Winter Park Beautiful. This organization assists in efforts to remove invasive snail species from local Orlando lakes.
What is one awesome thing you love about college (and maybe even your college specifically)?
One of the greatest things that I love about being in college is simply the opportunity to become a better person through the power of education. During my time at UCF thus far, I have met many amazing and influential individuals. Without attending college, I am certain that I would not have made these important connections with those in my career field.
What would you like to tell our funders?
To the funders, I want to give an incredibly huge thank you for believing in my potential. With your support, you are continuing to invest in the future of young professionals who are bound to change the world.
A huge round of applause for Timothy for doing great things on campus! This is often what our Project Inspire Scholarship recipients are doing—making a huge impact on and off of their college campuses in amazing ways!
A quick update from me: Timothy is one of our most active scholarship recipients and really has been doing huge things on UCF’s campus. I’ll actually be personally visiting his parents’ home later this month to see him off to Tallahassee for this legislative session with his family and friends.
Thank you for reading about our amazing Project Inspire scholarship recipient, and expect more great updates about our Project Inspire Scholarship recipients to come!
