 ***UPDATE 2015***

Kenneth is a 2nd year, 5-year MBA major at Hampton University. He says: "My freshmen year at Hampton was a very blessed and successful learning experience. Transitioning to college was difficult for me at first. I had to adjust to my new found freedom.

Extracurricular activities were exciting, but I had some trying times too that made me doubt that I was truly ready for college. Later in the semester, I found a renewed focus with my studies. I managed to balance everything, dipping into some activities on and off campus. I finished my freshman year with a 3.21 GPA and made the Dean's List. I participated in a school wide talent show called Battle of The States, involving dance, fashion and music; my group came in second place. During the summer, I had two jobs: a summer counselor at Hampton University for a weeklong youth program called the Young Diplomats and an overnight stocker at Walmart. I am now back at Hampton to continue my success from freshmen year and strive to do even better by getting involved in more activities and improving myself overall. A huge thing I learned last year was to give everything time and not let others influence me, and God would make a way. I want to thank you, Mrs. Stith and the Martha Mason Hill Memorial Foundation, for contributing to my education and for your ongoing support. Please keep me in your prayers as I keep you in mine. I truly thank God for all that He has blessed me with, and I tell myself every day that I am nothing without Him which helps me to keep pushing with my academics and striving in all the other areas. As long as I am working hard and doing what I am supposed to do, then God will lead me to my own path of success. I know He has placed me at Hampton University for a greater purpose because I really do love it here and am excited for my future as a Hamptonian."
