Family of the Year
Each year during Family & Friends Weekend, the Office of Parent and Family Programs honors a USF family who shows unwavering support for their students and demonstrates what it means to be a part of the USF Bull Family.
2018-19: Meet the Powers Family!
This year, we were delighted to recognize the Powers Family, from Jacksonville, Florida. Parents Steve and Margaret Powers have three Bulls enrolled at USF: triplets Kirby (Business Management), Courtney (Business Management) and Phillip (Mass Communications), who are thriving on campus in their respective academic programs and co-curricular involvement experiences.
Steve and Margaret, nominated by their students, are described as advocates for the education and academic pursuits of their children. They attend track meets, travel to football games, bring meals during finals week, proofread papers and offer extra encouragement to the triplets as they navigate their individual goals.
It is an honor to have this family as a part of our USF community and a we are thrilled to recognize them with this award.
