Hobart and William Smith Colleges

Saoirse Scott, a first-year student at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, is an active member of the Posse Program and has contributed to the Geneva community through involvement with Tools for Social Change, America Reads, and in two service-learning classes. I am thrilled to nominate Saoirse for the Newman Civic Fellow Award, and believe that Saoirse's demonstrated commitment to civic engagement and and community advocacy will continue to be an inspiration to her peers.

Personal Statement

My passion for social justice came from my family, and I was attracted to Hobart and William Smith Colleges because I could see how I could purse my civic engagement interests inside and outside of the classroom. As an America Reads tutor, I was honored to be a role model to kids who may have come from a similar background as me, and show them how to persevere so that opportunities for higher education are attainable, these interests inform my curricular aspirations and long term career and social justice oriented goals.
