Back in April, I wrote about how students at my alma mater might have to pay for room and board. Unfortunately, this is now a reality. As a result, I’m sending the MSMS Foundation $55 every two weeks [$1350/26 > to the nearest $5] for the next year. I’m only doing it this way because I’m not sure what the state will do next year. I’ll see what they do and adjust accordingly.
Fellow MSMS alumni, I urge you to consider doing something similar. You may not be able to afford to throw $55 at the Foundation every paycheck—but figure out what you can. We were given a great gift, and we need to propagate that gift through the generations.
