Your Impact

Kersten Taylor, a junior from Wichita, Kansas, was confident she wanted to attend The University of Alabama after her sister’s exceptional undergraduate experience at the Capstone. The atmosphere and the support system within the School of Social Work made her area of study equally clear.

Scholarships, including funds from the Gundy and Hill Crest Scholarship, have allowed Kersten to establish herself as a leader within the School of Social Work as she works towards a career working with at-risk juvenile females.
