Student of Temple

Graduating senior Matt Cahill, EDU ’15 was among those featured in Temple University's Hire an Owl campaign. The campaign shows how students have flexed their muscles both inside and outside of the classroom while at Temple. Cahill, diagnosed with dyslexia at a young age, founded a Temple chapter of Eye to Eye, a national mentoring organization that pairs young students who have ADHD and other learning disabilities with college students who have the same disability. “Some people work to fill up their resume,” Cahill said. “I work to make an impact in the lives of people around me.”
