Like many students, Angela Watley discovered Marygrove College via community college. She was attending classes at the downtown campus of Wayne County Community College (WCCC) when a counselor recommended she consider Marygrove to complete her degree in Social Work.
“Marygrove has changed my life,” says Angela who expects to graduate in December 2010. “I appreciate Marygrove’s strength-based approach to learning.” She was impressed that Professor Jann Hoge called her on a Sunday evening to describe Marygrove’s program and to encourage her to enroll. Angela was selected for the Alumna of Tomorrow Award because of her excellent academic performance, leadership in campus and community organizations and because she has overcome a great deal of adversity to earn her degree. She exemplifies the highly motivated, mature students who return to school decades after high school.
