2019 Trojan Heart Challenge kicks off

March 11, 2019

Compassion and service have always been a part of Troy University’s mission. It’s even in the University’s founding motto: “Educate the mind to think, the heart to feel and the body to act.”

In its second year, the Trojan Heart Challenge aims to find the individuals who best embody that motto.

A joint effort of the John W. Schmidt Center for Student Success, Student Involvement, Student Government Association, Tropolitan, Service Learning and Civic Engagement, and TROY First Lady Janice Hawkins, this challenge aims to collect and share the stories best reflecting the Trojan Heart of Troy University students, faculty and staff.

Each submission should name a person who has done a good deed for someone else and briefly state why this act deserves recognition.

The winner of the TROY Trojan Heart Challenge will be asked to choose a non-profit charity to receive a $1,000 prize donation provided by the Dr. and Mrs. Jack Hawkins, Jr. family.

Nomination forms, which are due by April 5, can be found at
