Belmont University senior Tim Harms has received the 2010 Harold Love Outstanding Community Involvement Award. This notable distinction is awarded annually by the State of Tennessee Higher Education Commission to five students and five faculty or staff members in higher education in Tennessee to honor significant public service.
Harms is a double-major in finance and accounting and has maintained a 4.0 grade point average. He is the president of Belmont’s nationally recognized Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team, which was recently named SIFE USA Regional Champions for the fifth consecutive year. Harms was one of six Belmont SIFE students who presented at the competition and will again join the Belmont team when they advance to the SIFE USA National Exposition May 11-13 in Minneapolis.
Harms mentors at-risk African-American students in Metro Davidson County high schools, teaching them financial literacy and helping with ACT preparation. He also leads a business ethics essay competition in more than 15 local high schools.
