Bright Horizons Bright Futures Scholarship Wannetta
Wannetta is currently working towards her Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education at Baker College and has previously received a bachelor of General Studies from the University of Indiana and her Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Charles Mott Community College. Wannetta is active in volunteer work and community outreach. She teaches Sunday school, sings in the church choir, and participates in a monthly food and clothing give-away. She has also participated in the Flint Water Crisis, distributing water and filters to the families in her community and the surrounding areas. Wannetta has had to overcome many obstacles toward reaching her dream of teaching children. “I had to convince myself that I had the courage and stamina to re-enter college some twenty years after graduating from high school. Juggling going to school and raising two children was stressful and exhausting, but I have stayed committed to my education.” Congratulations Wannetta!
