Giving to Wright State


“My father inspired me to choose education as a career path. I recall a time in the fourth grade when I received high marks in a class, but my teacher said I needed to control my chatter with other students. My father wasnʼt mad at me for talking with my peers, but he didnʼt like the fact that I was distracting other kids from learning. He suggested that I talk to them about the work instead. This advice led me to focusing on a career in middle childhood education. At Wright State, I have received scholarships that will allow me to graduate debt free. I have professors that believe in me and give me opportunities that allow me to prosper and be successful.”
