It was quite the homecoming for Morgan Moses when he returned to the University of Virginia’s Scott Stadium for the football game versus rival Duke University on October 7. UVA handily defeated the Blue Devils to extend their winning streak in the 89 game historical series to three wins. It was also the UVA Bicentennial Week celebrating 200 years as a public university and so many alums came back to the college in-force.
To celebrate the new progress for the Morgan Moses Foundation educational program Homework Help!, it was only fitting that Morgan return to his alma mater to share the news of the first 50 students signing-up. Only this time, Morgan was celebrating during the Second Quarter GEICO show alongside a fellow Cavalier, Todd Hitt.
Todd Hitt, a native Virginian like Moses, is a fellow NCAA All-American athlete. Hitt visited the UVA men’s soccer team in February to talk about the transferrable skill sets athletes can take from the soccer field to the workforce. During the GEICO program, Hitt talked about the importance of education to all American kids – not just student athletes – and why he made his initial challenge grant to the Morgan Moses Foundation. Dedicated to their craft and to helping others, Moses and Hitt are quite the match-up. The two teamed-up to elevate the tutoring program Homework Help! with Hitt’s challenge donation of $50,000 back in August and a promised match at the end of the year with new funding.
While at UVA, Moses and Hitt shared the importance of supporting the nation’s youth and their educational goals. Since both have strong ties with the University, it was important to start a dialogue with their own academic community. Through partnerships, like the one with Todd Hitt, the Morgan Moses Foundation is now enrolling over 50 students into the Homework Help! Program this fall.
The Homework Help! program is a partnership with The Princeton Review’s Tutor.com online tutoring platform. Students who apply will be eligible for a yearlong online tutor that can be accessed 24/7 and provide tutoring in any subject. Through the partnership with The Princeton Review, and Morgan and Todd’s underwriting, the tutoring for these students comes at no cost.
