David Hunt, a Charlotte native and Myers park high school alum is kicking things up a notch. He recently graduated from Drexel University in Philadelphia with three degrees in Finance, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship and was the commencement speaker. He has been awarded with multiple accolades including first place one national case competition, a technology competition hosted by his university, and an incubator competition for his new business, Spor. The thing about David is that all of these things simply mean that he is living into his mission of making the world a better place. When David graduated middle school, he was diagnosed with the rare blood disorder, Aplastic Anemia. Hospitalized for 10 days and undergoing a brief treatment of chemotherapy, he says he was forced to question the implications of his existence.
“Do for this world, not simply for yourself,” says Hunt.
