2012-Present Years of Service
The first in her family to attend university, Hailee navigated her way through school when her dad unexpectedly lost his job at the start of her junior year. Already working three part-time jobs and struggling to find time to study, financially it didn't seem possible to continue her education. With the help and support from this grant, Hailee continued at USU and graduated with a degree in human development in 2017. Feeling loved and appreciated by receiving this grant, she was inspired to work with the homeless for the Catholic community.
“I thought I was going to drop out of school and put my dreams on hold, but this grant gave me a second chance. While my own family was not in a position to help, my Aggie family was and I will always be grateful for the love and help I received when I was in my darkest moment. Those who donated not only changed my life, they changed the life of my family and future family generations. They gave me the support I couldn't receive anywhere else. I work every day to pay it forward not only in my work but in my everyday life. Every day I work to supply that support and compassion I received to the homeless, my family and friends because I have never experienced compassion and support like that.”
