Everyday Champions are HCC student athletes like Walter Covington, whose grit and strong work ethic will help lift both him and his family out of the cycle of poverty. This fall, we have created our first campaign to support students like Walter, and we are proud to announce that our very own HCC alumnus and Hillsborough County

Commissioner Ken Hagan is personally offering a dollar-for-dollar match. Donors of $50 or more will have their donation matched up to a total of $1,000, making your gift go farther and making even more of an impact on our students! Click on the Give button on the left now to make your contribution and make a difference for a student like Walter!

Walter recently said: “HCC changed my direction in life. Everyone from the coaching staff to my teammates embraced me and helped mold me into a better player and a better student. If it wasn’t for the immense generosity of HCC donors, and the sense of community HCC offers, I would not now be the first person in my family to get a degree and a full ride basketball scholarship to a Division I program.” Walter attends Prairie View A&M University and plans to become an engineer.

You are the reason hardworking athletes like Walter are able to go the distance, and we are so grateful for your support. Click here if you have questions regarding our Everyday Champions Campaign.
