UAH Success Story

Kayla Smith -UAH Success Story

Words cannot begin to express the gratitude I have for you all.

Just when I thought I would need to take a semester off to work and save up for my last term, I got the email, and a scholarship from UAH solidified that I would graduate in April 2020. Since starting my collegiate career in 2016 I held at least two jobs to pay for school. During my last year, on top of two jobs and 18 hours of classes, I was able to support the Chargers by joining both the cheerleading and dance team, along with multiple on-campus organizations. I started my dream job earlier this year as a Geospatial Analyst doing work for the National Department of Defense. Because of the generosity of donors, I no longer had to question if I would be able to finish my degree. I am grateful for donors and the graciousness they hold and am so thankful.
