What do you like most about being a Hunt Scholar?
The Hunt Scholarship first and foremost gave me the opportunity to attend a university that has culminated my innate talents and helped develop me as a leader and a student. I have gained genuine friendships, worthwhile experiences and an education and professors who have helped me understand and utilize my specific abilities. The Hunt Scholarship pushed me to be a leader and eventually follow the calling to be a Marine Corps Officer, a path of which I could not be more eager to blaze. There is not one aspect of the Hunt Scholarship with which I am most pleased but rather it is what the scholarship has made my college experience that makes it such a blessing.
