Southeastern Student Tori Hoover strives to promote school spirit through her business, Obsession Boutique.
In 2013, Tori took initiative to pursue her dream by purchasing Obsession Boutique from the previous owner. Although she was only a senior in high school, Tori was determined to make an impact on the Hammond community and decided attending Southeastern would be the best way to do it.
“There’s no better way to understand a community than to be a part of it,” said Tori, “Southeastern is such a big part of Hammond, we wanted to be as involved as we could possibly be on campus.”
Obsession Boutique interacts with students on campus by sponsoring Greek organizations and participating in philanthropy events. Tori and her employees are proud supporters of the Alumni Association who attend events such as Champagne Bingo and Chef’s Evening.
Obsession Boutique continues to show support by donating items for auction and being one of the only locally owned stores with Southeastern gear and apparel. Tori plans to continue growing her business through the expansion of its website and opening a second location.
Tori said, “We may be getting bigger, but our hearts will always belong to Hammond.”
