Kyle Barnett

Goodwill Scholarship Winner

I first want to thank Dr. DeSimone and the Charity for Champions team for awarding me this scholarship for all of my hard work throughout my four years. This recognition means so much to me in so many different ways. This scholarship allows me to make the very most out of my

four years at college by giving me the financial independence to take my learning overseas, take interesting classes, and become a more well-rounded individual. This scholarship could not have come at a better time as my mother's law firm recently had to downsize which resulted in her losing her job. This award has helped to alleviate some of the trauma my family has faced. In addition to the aforementioned reasons, this scholarship empowers me to do more, it means that my effort and unwavering determination in all things has been recognized and it is the best feeling in the world. While the university I am attending has changed from Florida State University to The University of Florida, my future plans remain constant.  At UF, I plan to become a part of student government (I plan to run for a position in my first year), I want to engage in deeper learning through research with a professor, I want to found a fundraiser/group at my university, and I would love to experience my Jewish roots with a birthright trip to Israel with my university.  

Lauren Peter

Goodwill Scholarship Winner

I can’t thank Dr. DeSimone enough for selecting me as the recipient for the Goodwill Scholarship. It’s an honor that he would consider me to be one of his candidates for his Charity for Champions and an even bigger honor to that I became a recipient. This scholarship will assist me to further pursue my life goal of becoming a veterinarian. It will help to significantly contribute to the cost of books and supplies that I will need at the University of Florida.

Camila Tussie

Academic Achievement Award Honorable Mention

I'm currently attending Stanford University where I am majoring in Biological Engineering. After my undergraduate studies, I dream of attending Dental School. Charity for Champions has proved to me the importance of balancing both athletics and academics, opening my eyes to both being not only possible, but complementary to each other. I am extremely grateful for being recognized and am so incredibly thankful to Dr. DeSimone for the honor.

Tiffany Su

Academic Achievement Award Honorable Mention

I am thankful and honored to be recognized and awarded a scholarship for my academic achievement. I will be attending Georgia Tech and majoring in  either environmental or biomedical engineering. After I obtain my college degree, I not only intend to pursue a career in engineering, but also participate in Engineering Without Borders. I believe in giving back to community, and I want to dedicate my time and efforts towards service in the future. I am extremely grateful that the scholarship will help cover some of the financial cost of my tuition, because it will lessen the financial burden on my family. Charity for Champions has made it possible for me to pursue my dreams of a college education.

Kevin Iber

Most Improved Athlete Award Winner

I have always wanted to be an accountant or businessman. I plan on becoming an accountant for a well-known business. This scholarship means the world to me, and I am so glad to have received it. It makes it even better that it is titled "Most Improved". This scholarship really motivates me and pushes me to improve even more, and become the best person I could be.
