“The HIGH Program, through its support and encouragement offered to students, is making a difference in their lives. We are excited to offer our support through the foundation.”
-Myra Anderson, Executive Director of the Sean Anderson Foundation
It is with great joy that we can announce that the Sean Anderson Foundation is continuing our support of Wayne State University’s Helping Individuals Go Higher (HIGH) Program. In the form of a $15,000 donation, our contribution will go towards providing short-term support to Wayne State students experiencing homelessness or precarious housing situations.
Wayne State’s first lady Jacqueline Wilson founded the HIGH Program in 2013 when she met a Wayne State student who had experienced homelessness while attending school. With reports indicating that homelessness is a nationwide issue, students in the HIGH Program receive short-term assistance, with the goal of returning students to long-term stability and helping them complete their degree.
This is the second gift from our foundation in support of the HIGH Program. In 2016, we created a $25,000 endowment for the program, and we are thoroughly appreciative of the ongoing work and efforts by the HIGH Program, to offer meaningful resources to deserving students when they need them most.
