A group of University of Michigan faculty, staff, students and alumni recently visited Battle Creek Central High School as part of the Wolverine Express, a program designed to promote higher education at under-resourced high schools across the state.
Organized by the Center for Educational Outreach, Wolverine Express gives members of the U-M community a chance to share their academic and career journeys and help other students in the state see college and U-M as a possibility.
“The whole goal is to inspire,” CEO Director Kim Lijana said. “I think sometimes we underestimate the power of all of our stories and what got us to where we are today. To give that to a student is really a gift.”
