Peter T. Schock, 23
School: University of Massachusetts Dartmouth
Schock's path to UMass included several serious health setbacks at a young age. In school, he has been an active member of the student government, as well as with the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. He has been hired by EMC, but intends to remain active on behalf of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation at Children's Hospital in Boston.
