"I love Ferris State University and have made it a point to take advantage of as many opportunities as I can. I'm a member of the Alpha Kappa Psi Professional Business fraternity, the National Organization for Women, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the Black Student Union. I also volunteer as the assistant cheerleading coach, at the Big Event and the annual Christmas food drive. I am so grateful to Mr. Shapiro for his generosity and financial support of my college education. Receiving the Mickey Shapiro Opportunity Endowed Scholarship allows me to concentrate on what is important to me: my education in the classroom and involvement in student activities. Words can't express my gratitude for being selected as a recipient of the scholarship."
