Meet Courtney Hopson

Major: Elementary and Early Childhood Education

Why Behrend? I knew I wanted to go to a Penn State campus because of the rigorous, hands-on programs offered.

What makes you unique? My level of motivation when facing a challenge. I am always trying to improve myself in every aspect of my life. I love to set goals and strive to reach them. I am a really competitive person, and I love the process that goes into getting great results.

What’s your passion? I am passionate about inspiring children like I have been inspired through my life. I have such a great support system in my family and in my church, and it really bothers me to know that some children don’t have that support. I want my students to know that they have someone who cares for them and is rooting for them to succeed.
