Hey Facebook Friends and Family! I am riding the 2017 WSU Baroudeur to raise money for scholarships at Wayne State. No surprise that I would sign up to ride 100 miles on a bike...but here's why: I went to Wayne State University on a full academic scholarship, which covered four years of tuition for my art major. They kindly extended it when I was admitted to the Honors English program to allow me to complete a double major. When I applied to graduate school in education, Wayne State hired me as a teaching assistant so I could pay my tuition and receive my 7-12 teaching certification. I had no college money from my family. I needed to rely on those scholarships. Thanks to them, I had no student loan debt. Time to pay it forward for the next generation- will you help?
