Class of 2016
Bachelor of Arts, Business Administration
Truman State University
For the past two years I have been lucky enough to receive an interest-free loan from The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis to help pay for my education. During the spring of 2014, one of their representatives told me about a paid internship opportunity with College Summit-Missouri. …[During my internship] the people I worked with are some of the most passionate people I have ever met. I was privileged to post on social media as students went through [College Summit’s] four-day workshops over the course of the 2014 summer. It is amazing to me the perseverance that College Summit students have to succeed. Thank you to anyone who has been a part of my College Summit experience. I can’t wait to give back after I finish undergrad. —excerpt from Jacob’s College Summit blog post
