The Faith Danielle Hedgepeth Award seeks to celebrate and honor the life of former Tar Heel, Faith Danielle Hedgepeth. Established in 2015, the award serves to support current Tar Heels along their academic journey while providing an avenue for impact outside the classroom through extracurricular engagement, as Faith did during her time on campus. The Faith Danielle Hedgepeth Award will pay for book expenses, supplies, and basic living expenses for a sophomore student interested in pursuing a career in a helping or health profession serving American Indian populations. Interested students should also be able to demonstrate a record of service to the American Indian campus community. The selected recipient will be recognized at the Faith Danielle Hedgepeth Luncheon on September 20th 2016.
**All registration fees and any other donations will go to the Faith Danielle Hedgepeth Award. **
