For 2020 we’ve been asking students and alumni of Kentucky’s independent colleges and universities to share something about their college experiences in a series we’ve been calling AIKCU Voices. We pressed pause on these for a bit as we dealt with the immediate ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic, but it’s important to keep celebrating the students, alumni, and faculty who make our institutions such special places. If you’d like to share your story, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When I was in elementary school, my older brother taught me the quadratic formula. He always pushed me to accomplish more than what was expected, and showed me by example to pursue life-long learning. I looked at about 20 different colleges, applied to a handful, and visited one—that’s all I needed.
I signed to Thomas More as an athlete and accepted my spot in the honors program. In my last year of my undergraduate education, I am finishing a degree in mathematics and English with a minor in environmental science as the Student Government Association President and a two-sport athlete.
The professors, advisors, coaches, and friends I have made at Thomas More have pushed me to accomplish more than was expected of me. Attending college here was one of the best decisions I have made. I will never stop learning.
