Why do you want to support Belmont?
I want to support Belmont because I love being a part of this student-centered campus. Belmont has been very good to me so I wanted to give back and support the students I work with and love.
Why are you supporting scholarships specifically?
As an undergraduate I received scholarships that made it possible for me to attend college. I’m an alum from MTSU. Belmont’s College of Pharmacy often recruits strong students from that institution so this scholarship was developed to specifically help a student who chose to attend both MTSU and Belmont.
Is there a specific experience you’ve had with Belmont that inspired this gift?
As a faculty member at Belmont you get to enjoy all the amazing things our students do and scholarships can enrich a student’s experience while providing opportunities that might not otherwise be possible.
Why would you encourage others to give to Belmont?
I chose to endow a scholarship at this stage of my career so that I could witness and enjoy the difference it made in the lives of my students. Starting the scholarship now allows me to know the recipients and see the difference it makes in their professional lives.
