Young alumni give back for future Honors College Spartans
David Hill (’05, Honors College and Business) and Elizabeth “Liz” Kidd-Hill (’05, Honors College and James Madison) have a passion for Michigan State that is evident in the volunteer hours they devote to helping current students. But the Spartan Scholarship Challenge steered them to give back more than time and commitment. The young couple recently established a Spartan Scholarship Challenge endowment to benefit members of the Honors College at MSU.
Liz and David understand that staying connected to their alma mater enriches their lives and strengthens ties to their colleges and to their university. As members of the Honors College at MSU, their campus experience afforded them not only a rigorous academic program but also the opportunity to enjoy a small college atmosphere at a world leading research institution. Since graduating from Michigan State University in 2005, David and Liz have stayed connected to and participated in several Honors College alumni events which include career panels, connecting with alumni and attending service day events. They are always willing to help and promote the Honors College.
According to the couple, “The Honors College was an integral part of our college experience and we found that establishing an endowed scholarship enabled us to give back to MSU and the Honors College by creating a lasting gift which would assist Honors College students, particularly those with financial need. We are grateful for the unique opportunity the Spartan Scholarship Challenge offered us to begin a scholarship fund as young alumni and look forward to remaining engaged with the university to support future Spartans as they pursue their education.”
