How did Hendrick help you get where you are?

JAIRO - The Hendrick Scholarship Foundation helped me by providing more than just financial aid. Hendrick provided me with a group of people who support me with academic advising, real life advise, and they helped me prepare for my move to Austin from Plano.
Why did you want to go to UT? Why do you like it?
SABRINA - I wanted to go to UT because I knew they had one of the top journalism programs in the country. (which I’m proud to say is still true!) I love UT because of the loving community, the plethora of opportunities I’ve been given and the atmosphere of learning.
JAIRO - The University of Texas provides the most diverse music setting I have ever experienced. The professors here care more about understanding than grades. The teachers also make it crystal clear that they are always there for you and they really share their love of music with all students. I wanted to come to UT because of the amazing diversity and the sense of pride. I found both and love every second here. - What Starts here Changes the world. Hook em!!!
Thank you to you both! Congratulations and good luck. Hook 'em Horns!
