When Trey Conner (physical education, ’11) was approached about the opportunity to flip his education skills into community outreach that would help build a new Piston’s minor league farm team in 2013, he felt it he couldn’t turn it down. Six years later, he’s worked his way up to Vice President of the Grand Rapids Drive and is still using those skills to help engage kids in the community today.
Every year, Broncos majoring in education have the opportunity to head to Auckland, New Zealand to complete a portion of their student teaching internship requirement. The experience gives pre-service teachers, like Nina Amicarelli, a senior majoring in elementary education, a chance to prepare for their own classroom while expanding their idea of what classrooms can look like.
Did you graduate from WMU? We want to hear from you! You’re invited to participate in a survey that will help us learn more about your experience as a WMU alumnus/a. How can we improve YOUR Alumni Association? Your voice, opinions, and ideas matter! The survey will close on March 29.
Students who study abroad receive more job offers and make higher starting salaries. Coupled with the fact that you get to see the world, it’s not surprising that many students are eager to experience global travel as a part of their studies. Many rely on financial aid to make their trips become a reality, which is when scholarships like the Bruce W. Mesara Study Abroad Airfare Fund become game changers for students.
