TC alumni who contribute to the TC Annual Fund can now read about their dollars at work by logging on to www.tc.edu/supportTC. There, they'll find accounts of life at TC blogged by four students--Jessica Cruz, Omari Keeles, Joe King and Sarah Norris--all of whom receive some Fund support. l "Who better to communicate the importance of contributing to the Annual Fund than the people who benefit directly from it," says Michael Sclafani, Director of the TC Fund, who intends to keep tracking the students until they start to use their degrees in the real world. Cruz, who arrived in the U.S. speaking no English, is part of the International Education Development Program and is focusing on bilingual/bicultural education with a geographical concentration on South America. Keeles is a Howard University grad who wants to use his TC degree to return to Howard as a psychology professor. King, who uses a wheelchair, is pursuing a degree in social/developmental psychology and is interested in researching perceptions, stereotypes and stigmas associated with disability. Norris plans to return home to Seattle after completing her Master of Arts in Higher and Postsecondary Education with the goal of working in development or admissions and transforming her knowledge into positive change when she reenters the workforce.
