Kenny Throop, a senior marketing major at UAH, continued a family tradition by deciding to enroll in classes at UAH. "Both of my parents graduated from UAH," the Huntsville native explains. "That fact combined with multiple other reasons made UAH the best option for me." During his freshman year, Throop became involved with Theta Pi, the UAH chapter of Alpha Tau Omega (ATO), a fraternity dedicated to the improvement of collegiate men on campus. He enjoyed it so much that he decided to run for treasurer his sophomore year. "I wasn't initially planning to run for such a big position so soon, but one of my ATO brothers convinced me to go for it," says Throop. He won the position, and went from managing a bank account that usually had barely $100 in it to managing one with a balance of thousands of dollars.
