Jeremy founded Never Settle during his college years at Purdue University. Today, he is being recognized as a Classy Award nominee for Most Influential College Student. Focusing on outstanding philanthropic achievements by charities, businesses, and people, the Classy Awards is one of the most prestigious recognitions in the nonprofit industry. Our mainstream media seems to almost exclusively highlight “bad news” and problems in the world. Instead, the Classys tell the stories of thousands of people fighting for solutions to these problems. Jeremy is doing just that, and we couldn’t be more proud of what Never Settle has accomplished this year.
But Jeremy will be the first person to tell you that this award isn’t about him at all. While the personal honor is great, we are way more excited for the incredible opportunity to share our story and impact with a national audience. Our vision is to empower everyone to use their passions to change the world. To do this, we must reach a wider audience. The CLASSY Awards will help us do just that!
The CLASSY Awards is the largest philanthropic awards ceremony in the United States. This year’s nominees are expected to receive more than 250 million media impressions including top media sites like Huffington Post, MTV and CNN. This is a BIG deal!
