Hello! My name is Spencer Myers. I am originally from Saginaw, Michigan. I am a graduate of Saginaw Valley State University (‘19). Currently, I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English Education. I have always been a lover of books and words. One of my favorite stories is by Oscar Wilde titled “The Devoted Friend”. It is a tragic fairytale that reminds readers of the important qualities in a healthy friendship. I highly recommend it. It is my goal to help learners discover their academic potential and see the value in a good education. A popular quote from one of my favorite authors (George Eliot) that echoes my values is this: “What do we live for if not to make life less difficult for each other?” In other words, we ought to be driven to offer our skills to the world so that others can hopefully prosper. I find this to be an important reminder personally and professionally. I am happy to be a part of Western Michigan University as the Academic Services Specialist within the TRIO program. Here, students are supported by staff and faculty that lend their talents to ultimately help WMU students develop as scholars, people, and professionals.
