Recently, we have been catching up with our Student Service Program (SSP) alumni.

The goal of the Student Service Program is to help shape and mentor the next generation of servant leaders in our community. Through the program’s leadership curriculum and service projects, it is our hope to ignite a spark in the students so they experience a renewed sense of purpose that will reflect in the service work they continue throughout Tampa Bay and beyond.

In today’s “Where Are They Now?” series, we hear from Hunter Croslin.

Update us! What has been going on with you since you went through the Student Service Program (SSP)

I am currently earning my undergraduate degree at the University of South Florida in Architecture.

How would you say the SSP influenced your life?

It truly sparked my passion for service. I’ve continued to volunteer locally and have stayed in touch with the other students from my class.

What have you learned from SSP that you continue to use on a regular basis?

The Student Service Program allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and develop my social skills.

What is your favorite memory from SSP?

Our hurricane relief service trip to Panama City

Anything you would like to tell future SSP members?
