Stories that Inspire

“When I think about my legacy at TU—it is my mentors who moved me to give back. It’s a privilege. Being civically engaged in the community makes you think about how to help those who come after you. My gift funds Model UN, conferences and research positions for students.”

“The A-List is really like a family. The community and mentorship from A-list is what got me through school. I felt like I had value—putting passion into things I cared about. I have my job at Howard County Library directly because of being an A-List.”
