John "JT" Timmons Scholarship for Exemplary Leadership Application

RSA recognizes members who have an impact on their campus community in many ways including through a scholarship known as the John “JT” Timmons Scholarship for Exemplary Leadership.

This scholarship was established in 2006 by the Resident Students’ Association to honor advisor-emeritus, John “JT” Timmons. Mr. Timmons served the RSA as advisor from 1992-2005.  During that time RSA accomplished many goals, including regional “School of the Year” for the South Atlantic Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls.  The leadership that Mr. Timmons brought to RSA was that of stability, continuous recognition of superior student effort, and a steady increase in residence hall community building.  This scholarship is to be awarded to a current active RSA member who, among other things, strives to improve the quality of the residential living experience in University residence halls.
