The $100 Difference

  1. 1. It started with $100…<br />
  2. 2. Maria was the first person in her family to graduate from high school.<br />Her family was so proud they came up with enough money to pay for one class at Washtenaw Community College.<br />However, she couldn’t afford to pay for the book.<br />
  3. 3. Maria went to talk to Edwina Jarrett, a WCC Counselor.<br />Edwina was able to give her $100 to buy the textbook.<br />
  4. 4. This made all the difference.<br />
  5. 5. Maria earned her Associate’s degree in two years.<br />This year, she will earn her Bachelor’s degree in Art History.<br />She has been to France and Italy and plans to continue her studies by applying to a Master’s program in Europe.<br />
  6. 6. The Counselors at WCC started a fund several years ago, paid for through their own contributions, to help students like Maria whom they see every day.<br />The WCC Foundation has been providing a grant to this fund each year for the past six years to help even more students like Maria.<br />
  7. 7. Gifts from generous donors make it possible for the Foundation to provide this support.<br />
