33_20131028221328_1492549_large[fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=Tyran Hill is a social work major at A&T who has big plans. After graduating this year, he plans on getting his masters in social work, with a concentration in child and family. He then wants to come back to Greensboro and open a group home for abused and neglected children. For now, Tyran is focusing on finishing his degree and enjoying his senior year. Despite his busy life, he also finds time to volunteer for BackPack Beginnings.

Tyran came to BackPack Beginnings (BPB) to volunteer one time and was so moved by the “welcoming” feeling of the organization he decided to become more involved. Time and time again BPB has turned to him when they needed a volunteer they can count on. For this year’s Human Race, Tyran was a fundraising coordinator. He made presentations to area businesses and organizations, raised money, and signed up other students to participate. He even carried the BPB sign for the entire course of the race. He has also helped pack food bags and organize the food donations at the office. His latest endeavor is a Christmas toy drive to benefit the Comfort Bag program.

The biggest impact Tyran feels is in “helping the children unable to help themselves.” With his heart in social work and helping children, he understands how important the BPB mission is. He hopes to continue his volunteer relationship with BPB once he has finished grad school and is back in Guilford County. He sees it as “somewhere I could volunteer my entire life.” BPB is lucky to have such a dedicated volunteer in their ranks!
