Freddy
I am tremendously grateful for the generosity of the donors that fund these scholarships. The scholarships have definitely taken a load of stress off of me as a student.
Freddy set his sights high at HCC, focusing on criminal justice and a future career in law enforcement. His path led him to the Silas Craft Collegians, Phi Theta Kappa, and other honors.

“Getting into Phi Theta Kappa is by far my greatest accomplishment at HCC. That was one of my main goals that I strived for from the moment I came into the school.”

From the beginning of his college journey, Freddy had set his sights high. He wanted to focus on criminal justice, learn about the law, our justice system, and prepare himself for a career in law enforcement. But he was concerned about his high school performance. “I did not earn the grades that I had hoped for throughout high school and knew that the grades you’d see on paper did not necessarily reflect my true academic potential,” Freddy said. So after some research, Freddy learned about the Silas Craft Collegians program at HCC. With help from scholarships, he is now proud to call himself a Phi Theta Kappa honors student and has been honored by Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.

“I am tremendously grateful for the generosity of the donors that fund these scholarships. The scholarships have definitely taken a load of stress off of me as a student. I am very fortunate that the scholarships have been able to cover both my tuition and books, thus allowing me to focus more on my academics rather than working many hours to afford attending college.”

Freddy is studying criminal justice, but adds that some of his favorite classes include economics, business, psychology, and sociology. He plans to transfer to the University of Maryland after graduation.
