Hayleigh Hallam, a sophomore in the College of Sciences and Mathematics (COSAM), is majoring in biomedical sciences, and has worked hard to be in the position she is in today. When unfortunate life circumstances created financial hardships for Hallam and her family, she managed to remain earnest. “I knew higher education was the key to success,” Hallam explained at a Samford Society event, “I put immense value on my performance in school.” Her performance was favorably rewarded with multiple scholarships, including the Goizueta Foundation Scholarship.

During her time at Auburn University, Hallam has been involved in COSAM’s STEM Summer Bridge program, which led her to later serve as a student ambassador for COSAM’s Office of Inclusion, Equity, and Diversity. This position “helps spread the mission of cultivating a diverse STEM workforce,” she explains. Hallam is also heavily involved in the Honors College, moving in early to partake in the Week of Service, both as a participant and a counselor, and becoming the vice president of the college’s service organization. 

With the help of her current scholarships and her array of experiences while at Auburn, Hallam plans to further her education by attending pharmacy school, after earning her degree in biomedical sciences and minor in leadership.
