KeVon'te's Story

KeVon’te Hall, a senior at the University of Montevallo double-majoring in political science and history on a pre-law track, is on track to graduate and has been nominated to become a member of the UM chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success.

The first-generation college student has interned with the Alabama State Legislature and currently works for Sen. Clyde Chambliss from Prattville, which is Hall’s hometown. He formerly worked for state Sen. Bobby Singleton.

KeVon'te HallHall said he’s able to attend Montevallo because of a GI Bill through his mom’s military service and the Deborah D. and William Denson III Scholarship.

“Having a scholarship, Pell Grant and the GI Bill really helped me out,” he said. “I don’t have to worry about paying for college. It removed the stress from my shoulders.”

“It’s important to continue to fund scholarships because it gives students who aren’t financially stable another option besides taking out student loans. When students get scholarships, other people invest in them, which means a lot.”

Hall said Montevallo is the only college he applied to. God led him here, he said, and since then everything’s fallen into place.

“The slogan ‘You belong at Montevallo’ is an understatement because UM prepares you for a lot more than just college,” Hall said. “It teaches you how to network, the small classroom sizes help you have very good relationships with your professor.”

“UM is a blessing. Looking back, I can easily say that I wouldn’t have gone to any other college but Montevallo.”
