Theodore Roosevelt Honors Program
About the Students
The TRHLP is made up of a very diverse group of students from eight states and five countries. TR Scholars and Associates are pursuing a number of different majors, including education, nursing, social sciences, sciences, agriculture, business and math. On top of being excellent students, TR Scholars and Associates are also active participants in Bluehawk athletics and a wide variety of different on-campus clubs and organizations. The TR Program is unique in its focus on bringing together such a diverse group of young people to come together in a learning community.
Student Assistant Directors
Student Assistant Directors serve as student representatives in the administration of the program. Their responsibilities include planning and running all student meetings, events, and activities. They also help mentor TREC and assist the Program Director and Office Manager.
TR Executive Committee
Student representatives from each class encourage positive participation, oversee student initiatives, and organize student events. The executive committee helps shape the program and ensures continuous improvement.
In 2013, the TR Scholars and Associates chose to renew program involvement in KIVA, which is a microlending system for individuals in third-world countries. The KIVA committee is involved with raising funds for the TRHLP account and with distributing those funds to individuals in need.
Each year, a number of returning TR Scholars volunteer to mentor incoming freshman to help ease their transition into the TR Program and college life.
