HPU’s largest cohort of 1,470 new students represents a wide variety of academic achievement, service, backgrounds, cultures and geographic locations. Below is a snapshot of a student whose initiative and passion to lead shine both in and out of the classroom.
Name: Amanda Lambert
High school attended: North Hunterdon High School in Clinton Township, N.J.
Accomplishments: Lambert is a Presidential Scholar and has an array of nonprofit service and leadership experience. She serves on the National Youth Advisory Board for the nonprofit Souper Bowl of Caring, and was the the recipient of her high school’s Gold Level Community Service Award four years in a row. Additionally, Lambert recently completed a development internship at The Angeletti Group in N.J. this summer, where she learned the ins and outs of fundraising for nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations. With more than twelve years of volunteer and internship work already under her belt with America’s Grow A Row (AGAR) – a nonprofit organization that provides fresh, healthy produce to those in need – Lambert is looking forward to forming an AGAR branch of her own on the HPU campus and adding to the already 100,000 volunteer hours of service the HPU family contributes each year.
Why you chose HPU: “I chose High Point for a number of different reasons. For one, the small class size and the mentoring opportunities are such attractive attributes to the institution. The atmosphere is such a caring and extraordinary one that I am really looking towards being a part of! The extra fourth credit hour of hands-on experience in each class is wonderful and I cannot wait to participate in and learn from it. High Point is such a wonderful place, and I cannot wait until I can be a part of the university!”
What you’re looking forward to at HPU: “I’m looking forward to exploring my academic interests at High Point and the great student life opportunities on campus.”
