The Michigan Ross Consortium Volunteer Weekend event this past weekend was a major success! 🌱 🌱
33 CGSM members volunteered up to 9 hours of their time with two organizations. Two groups spent time delivering meals to home-bound adults in Ann Arbor with Meals on Wheels. Another group volunteered with Growing Hope—an organization whose mission is to help people improve their lives & communities through gardening and increasing access to healthy food. 🌱 These volunteers certainly planted an impact on the community last weekend!
Friends, it’s really happening! This girl from Southwest Detroit is graduating from @uofmichigan with her masters fully paid for ✊🏽 I couldn’t be prouder of my community and my Mexican heritage. I am who I am. I’m an immigrant, a queer woman, who doesn’t take shit from anyone and who loves her community hard. I’m excited to walk across that stage this Saturday and I invite you all to join! No ticket required, and I’ll be recording my speech live because I’m speaking at my graduation! Here’s to my mami, my friends, family and Detroiters. I love y’all. We got this. Let’s get to work ✊🏽❤️ PS thank you @the_zamarron for your amazing work! And thank you @eltonmonroy for letting me crash your beautiful mural ✊🏽💕 #supportyourfriends#GoBlue#insidesw#latinasinhigherbaybeeee
Hoje é dia do famoso #tbt e vale a pena lembrar da minha experiência no laboratório do sono da Universidade de Michigan, em Ann Arbor. Lá conheci profissionais incríveis e professores excepcionais. Ensinamentos que levarei para o resto da vida! #sleepmedicine#michiganmedicine#goblue
As we near our first scrimmage, we invite you to meet our coaches!
Left to right: Meghan Veiga, Asst. Coach; Daniel Ellman, Head Coach; Mark Bacon, Asst. Coach.
🏀Coach Daniel is an 'old pro' when it comes to w/c basketball. He played 3 years in high school, reaching the national semi-finals in 2 of those 3. 🏅 He also happens to have the most wheelchair experience of all the coaches! 😂 Daniel loves all #detroitsports and worked in sports journalism in Chicago for 11 years prior to moving back to MI. He calls himself 'the king of puns' (even if he's laughing at his own jokes). 😉If you want to get to know him better... try finding Coach Dan at the local 7-11 where he is known personally by the cashiers due to the amount of slurpees he buys.🥤
🏀Coach Meghan has been coaching sports for the past 7 years including HS & college lacrosse, and now joins the w/c basketball ranks with the Rollverines. Originally from CA, ☀️she thinks surviving nearly 10 winters in the state ought to give her some sort of MI street cred.❄ In the summer, you'll find Meghan out on the bike trails, or competing in triathlons. Year-round, you might spot her wrangling her 2 dogs and 1 small child on various family adventures. 🐶 She says her hidden talent is packing suitcases and wrapping presents. So look her up if you're planning a holiday getaway! 🎁
🏀Coach Mark is an Ann Arborite through and through! Born and raised here, he says he feels privileged to now be working with the Rollverines. Also, we're pretty sure we've never seen him in anything BUT U of M gear #goblue... 💙💛 Mark's best offensive basketball coaching advice is: "Keep shooting until someone tells you to stop." 👍We'll take his word for it (since he does have 30 years worth of youth coaching experience!) Although he golfs way too much to enjoy winter, he *will* take a cold scoop of peanut butter cup ice cream any day of the week. 🍦
