You have paved the way for me.
Thank you for supporting the University of Tennessee! The campus
mission and spirit are energized with your involvement.
My classmates and I are fortunate to have access to the faculty,
facilities and resources supported by generous alumni and donors. As
a senior in the College of Social Work, I am following your path in
pursuit of my dream of a career in mental health counseling.
This is a career goal I wouldn't have dreamed possible without the
support and encouragement of my professors and peers. The College
of Social Work has provided the invaluable opportunity to complete
several field placements, including the Helen Ross McNabb Center's
Changes Program for children and adolescents and, most recently,
the Knox County Public Defender's Community Law Office.
Outside the classroom, my special involvement with Project LIVE has
allowed me to serve my local community. The Knoxville-area
organization aims to keep older adults in their choice of residence as
long as possible. It's real-world experiences like these that have
solidified my passion for public service.
Your gift can make real-world experiences like mine possible. Alumni
contributions sustain scholarship aid, faculty support, technology
and academic opportunities outside of the classroom.
On behalf of all of my fellow students, we are grateful for your
support. Go Vols!
