Big Sean Is Fighting College Homelessness In Detroit In A Big Way
Big Sean is no stranger to giving back.
After partnering with adidas last year and building a recording studio in his Cass Technical High School, in an effort to aid in the fact that "education is changing," the rapper is ready to do more. Through his Sean Anderson Foundation, the "Blessings" artist recently donated $25,000 to Wayne State University to aid in establishing an endowment for their HIGH (Helping Individuals Go Higher) Program.
The three year old program was designed to help "financially stressed students at Wayne State University reach their goal to graduate" by providing "housing support, textbooks and other school supplies, clothing, transportation, and child-care assistance."
In a statement to Daily Detroit, the foundation's president, Myra Anderson - Sean's mom - stated that, "We see the HIGH Program as an important component of ensuring success at Wayne State, and we are proud to help strengthen its mission. We aim to boost graduation rates at the university by providing support to students facing hardship."
With the cost of college on the rise in the country, this proves to be not only a much needed contribution but an extremely noble one. To learn more information about the program, click here.
