If I can donate for a current student and contribute to their development, I see it as the best means I can help both the student and the institution that gave me so much.

Coming to the United States from a town called Watford in England, I stayed in Superior with my aunt and uncle, who encouraged me to make my dream of furthering my education a reality. My experience at UW-Superior was better than I could have imagined. I majored in Sociology and Communicating Arts with a minor in Political Science, graduating in 2008. My main involvement was in student government, which allowed me to grow professionally and personally in ways I didn’t know I would coming in.

From UW-Superior, I went on to get my law degree and PhD in Higher Education Administration from Michigan State University. I now work at UW SystemAdministration as the Special Assistant to the Vice President for Administration, helping shape policymaking across the system. I also serve on the UW-Superior Foundation board.

I am acutely aware of the cost of higher education, and I was fortunate to receive scholarships that helped me defray some of that cost. If I can do that for a current student and contribute to their development, I see it as the best means I can help both the student and the institution that gave me so much. This is why I give to the Superior Fund. Even a seemingly small contribution can make a big difference to students. I hope you’ll consider doing the same.
