Words from the Director

March 2019

Daylight Savings starts March 10 - an extra hour of light!

March is also the month when spring officially begins… at least on the calendar. But in Michigan, March could mean shoveling snow one day and literally smelling roses the next.

Spring means there is hope in the air too. For Wayne State University’s underprivileged students, spring can also bring new challenges such as impending graduation, facing homelessness, food insecurity.

March is also National Women’s History Month. I would like to take a moment and express gratitude to all the women who have fought for equality; the better conditions you have created have helped shaped women’s goals and rules all over the world. It has even led me to me position at the HIGH Program.

Let me end with a quote by Aung San Suu Kyi, “You should never let your fears prevent you from doing what you know is right.” You can achieve your goals. Sometimes, you just need help. The HIGH (Helping Individuals Go Higher) Program can provide that help to students in need on their way to success.
