ALTRUSA Foundation Report, April 2013

The School of Aging studies would like to congratulate USF Senior and Gerontology Major, Taylor Jean Prickett, for being the inaugural recipient of the Altrusa International of Tampa Wilma B. Hogan Foundation Scholarship. The Altrusa International of Tampa, established in 1953, was built upon the desire of local professionals to "volunteer their energies and expertise in projects dedicated to community betterment." Prickett, a first-generation college student and the only one of her six siblings to attend college, is an active Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement (CLCE) Student Leader who has not only participated in CLCE initiatives such as the Gandhi Day of Service and the Stampede of Service but is also pursuing a minor in Leadership Studies through the CLCE. Prickett was able to personally thank her benefactors at a recent Altrusa Club meeting and luncheon.
