Tiffany Nicole Underwood entered the University of Alabama as freshman in the fall of 2010. She completed her first semester at UA in December 2010 with an overall GPA of 4.0 and is now classified as a Sophomore.
Tiffany completed her high school studies at Vestavia Hills High School where she had a 3.98 overall GPA. She also completed 17 hours of dual enrollment classes which qualified for college credits. She served as the Girls Vice President of her senior class and Captain of the Competitive Cheerleading Squad where they won the 2010 National Championship Super Large division.
Tiffany is continuing to excel at the University of Alabama with a 4.0 GPA for her first semester. Her efforts and hard work has garnered her several awards including Black Faculty and Staff Association Award for the highest GPA. She was one of 13 Black Sophomore students at UA that were recognized Sunday, April 3, 2011 for their exceptional GPA and she received the Ernestine Tucker Award. She has also been inducted into the Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society and Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society. She received the Department of Economic, Finance and Legal Studies Freshman Achievement Award and has been admitted to UA Honors College. She will be classified as a Junior in the Fall of 2011 after only being at UA for one full year which is outstanding and impeccable performance.
Tiffany is the daughter of Macaroy and Lora (Kirkland) Underwood of Vestavia Hills Alabama. They are both products of the Greene County School System and they were both excellent students. Lora said “We are proud of Tiffany because she has worked hard and deserves all of her awards and accomplishments. We have tried to instill in her good work ethics and we have taught her to always keep God first and all things are possible”.
Mac and Lora’s son, Christopher Underwood, is also attending the University of Alabama where he is on a football scholarship. He was a part of the University of Alabama’s 2010 National Championship Team. Chris should graduate in May 2011. He has one more year of eligibility on his football scholarship and he plans to continue his education and get a Masters Degree in Finance.
Lora stated “We have encouraged Tiffany and Chris to use their talents and ability to accomplish their goals in life and not to take anything for granted”.
These are two good examples of black students that are excelling in different ways and that shows these youngsters are on the right track.
