The daughter of an active-duty Army Warrant Officer stationed at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, Keili Keoho was awarded a $3,000 Heartland 4 Heroes/ThanksUSA scholarship to continue undergraduate studies at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga.
Majoring in Business with an Accounting concentration, Keili looks forward to completing the CPA exam and working as an accountant while attending law school. “My ultimate goal is to use my familiarity with the law and business to become a politician. I believe I have the capability to truly make a difference in the future of America.”
In addition to her studies, Keili serves as historian for the Chi Omega sorority, is a member of the Circle K Club, and is furthering leadership skills through the Women's Leadership Academy. She works as a Customer Service Representative for the UTC Aquatic and Recreation Center and enjoys tutoring Accounting and Economics. "As my time at UTC progresses, I hope to continue to get further involved in the University and take advantage of all the opportunities before me."
“I want to personally thank you and tell you how deeply grateful I am for this award. Receiving the Heartland 4 Heroes/ThanksUSA scholarship allows me to maintain the focus on school. Thank you again!”
