Tim Semonich '11

Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Scholarship and a Student Senate Scholarship Recipient

If you've met Tim Semonich, you know he's going places. He is what some might call a born leader. To Tim, leadership is not about power. It's about service. That attitude and his gift for working collaboratively made him highly effective during two terms as president of Student Senate at NCC. After transferring to Moravian College, he was elected president of Student Government there, too. Not bad for a young man who left home at 16, barely graduated from high school, and dropped out of college on his first attempt. What made the difference? A dead-end job in a warehouse, newfound motivation, a scholarship that gave him a second chance at college, and the encouragement and opportunities he found at NCC. Now as a district sales manager for the largest steel producer in the United States, Tim is setting up a scholarship to benefit future students. He's paying it forward.
