University of Tampa Bonner Leaders Work to Serve

Arielle Pollock ’20 spends two days a week tutoring children, helping them with their homework, reports or just sitting and reading together. 

As a Bonner Leader, she has been working with the R.I.C.H. House, a safe haven for at-risk children, since day one as a first-year student, an opportunity she said has given her a quick connection to her new home.

“Within my first couple weeks in the program I was fully immersed in not only the University but the Tampa community. Already, I have made connections with countless nonprofits, conducted interviews with potential new (Bonner) members, served as chair on a committee, organized retreats and been elected to represent our program nationally,” said Pollock, a biology major from Wilmington, NC. “Bonner presents me with endless opportunities, and I'm excited to see where it takes me in the years to come.”
