Soliant is proud to sponsor our Sunrise Scholarship, through which we award a one-time educational scholarship of $1,000 to a student who best answers the question presented for our Spring 2018-Fall 2018 program.

How has a mentor had a positive influence on you and in what ways has that affected your life?

Starting a new job is exciting, but can be overwhelming. When new employees join Soliant, they spend time with their manager to review internal systems, processes, and relevant reading materials. Our culture is one of continuing to improve; one way to follow that path is to pair an employee with a mentor who can help them advance their skills. Mentoring has lasting benefits for the employee and our company.

However, it’s not only jobs where mentors can make an impact. Perhaps there is someone in your life who helped you achieve something you didn’t think was possible. Be it a teacher, friend, parent, or relative, tell us about a mentor who has had a positive influence on you and how they affected your life.

Congratulations to our Fall 2017-Spring 2018 Award Recipient

Victor Moody - Soliant Sunrise Scholarship Fall 2017-Spring 2018 Winner

Thank you to Victory Moody, who is a Criminal Justice major with a minor in White Collar Crime at West Chester University. Victor was born in the Overbrook section of West Philadelphia and graduated from Northwest High School in 2014. In five years, he plans to be practicing criminal or entertainment law.
In additional to school, Victor has worked with kids ages 4-12 for the past six summers at the Max Myers Playground. The benefits of helping to teach children are two-fold: they learn valuable lessons and, in turn, they have increased his love of being a big brother to as many children as he can.
Victor’s other interests are dancing, singing, and acting. He is passionate about the importance of music and its power to unify people of disparate backgrounds across the world. Victor is a strong believer in self-development, as well as gaining social and professional experiences from any opportunity as it presents itself.
