“My scholarship opened the door to so many opportunities that would have been inaccessible to me,” he says. “Traveling has given me so much more appreciation for what the world has to offer and has broadened my perspective.”
“UT is what I would call ‘the full package,’” says Lucious. “There’s a club or organization for everyone and if there’s not, there’s a faculty sponsor willing to help you start it. Joining organizations helped me figure out what I am passionate about.”
Even the brightest of futures present some uncertainties, but Lucious knows one thing for sure — as soon as he’s on his feet, he’ll open doors for future Longhorns.
“Donors don’t only support students, they also inspire them,” says Lucious. “Knowing what my scholarship enabled me to do is motivation for me to give back.”
