After receiving thousands of scholarship dollars to attend her dream college Samantha Rodriguez-Osorio, alumni from West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science, was eager and prepared to launch into the next phase of her educational journey. Sam is intelligent, bright, and caring – all she needed was to find a support group as she had at West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science. When she arrived on campus, she partnered with the Central Michigan University Charter School Office to help create a mentorship program where charter school graduates can connect and navigate adjusting to a larger school setting together.
My time spent at WMAES provided not only academic excellence but also meaningful relationships that have impacted who I am today. The school has taught me so much about how important it is to help others along the way.
