HardMoneyHome.com Fall 2018 Volunteerism and Entrepreneurship Scholarship Winner
The HardMoneyHome.com Volunteerism and Entrepreneurship Scholarship winner for Fall 2018 has been chosen. Cheyenne Clopton, who is attending the University of Southern California, will receive a $1,000 scholarship for her volunteer experience and passion for entrepreneurship.
Cheyenne took on a very important role at her high school by volunteering to be the debate coach for a full year. Her school was left without a debate coach and as a student, Cheyenne decided to step up and volunteer to teach and coach her fellow students so that they could learn and participate on the debate team that year. Her actions were unprecedented and she took a huge risk since she had other duties as a student that year as well, but she picked up the responsibility of being the coach. She communicated with administration and taught herself and other students debate materials. Her fellow students were able to learn debate, and build relationships, knowledge, and confidence due to Cheyenne’s role. Cheyenne said that she, “used to underestimate herself, but now she knows that if she puts her mind to anything she can definitely achieve it, and it’s not too early to start making change.”
Cheyenne is interested in becoming an entrepreneur by giving back to underprivileged communities. She wants to start a non-profit aimed at younger people so that they can help realize their fullest potential. Cheyenne is going to study Political Science, Social Change and Nonprofits in college. Congratulations, Cheyenne!
