Making a Difference: Jacob Taylor
Jacob Taylor has a strong belief in helping our students succeed. As an alumnus, veteran, employee and MBA candidate, he gives back to the university out of pride for where we are now and where we will be in the future.
"As an employee, it's been my personal goal to do everything I can to give students a helping hand. In my position, I have the chance to interact one-on-one with students from every college and program. I feel I have a personal obligation to help them along in their academic journey—not only through my work, but as a supporter of student scholarships.
"As a prior recipient of the award, I choose to give to the Greg Wolf Global Logistics Scholarship. I know the challenges of balancing schoolwork, a full-time job and family life. The extra support provided by a scholarship made all the difference in assisting me in reaching my academic dreams. Today, I'm proud to be in a position where I can give back."
