“I’m so excited to have found you on here. I wanted to thank you and the EWI for my scholarship when I was at HFCC. I’ve since graduated with Honors from UM-D (2013) with a major in English and a minor in Linguistics. I am currently the administrative assistant to the principal at Stout Middle School in Dbn. I could not have done this without your support and help. Being a nontraditional student, I was very intimidated to go back to school at my age, and competing with the younger students. Your scholarship and support helped me overcome my fears and gave me the confidence I needed to succeed. A million thank-you’s to all of you incredible ladies!” – Pina Prather 2012 ASIST Scholarship Winner EWI Detroit-Windsor Chapter (1 of 3)
“I thank god for this moment. I appreciate being chosen for the scholarship program, never applied for one, this like a dream come true for me. I was at the maximum allowed for Pell Grant, didn’t know which way to turn. As a single parent of two and one with a mental condition, and guardian of four from a deceased sister from cancer. I’m trying to make ends meet with the assistance from welfare. This will benefit me in achieving my career. Now I can be on my career path once again thanks to every individual and organization who helped make a dream come true thanks.” – Joan Williams 2013 ASIST Scholarship Winner EWI Detroit-Windsor Chapter (1 of 3)
