MICA Aims To Rally Support in Annapolis

Students and Staff members make their case before legislators during MIHED in Annapolis

During this day, the students and administrators emphasized the necessity of the Sellinger Program to state legislators. The Sellinger Program awards state aid to independent colleges, with more than 85 percent of the funds being used for student financial aid and the remaining applied to other higher education goals, such as increasing minority enrollment and revitalizing local neighborhoods through community outreach.

The students met with key legislators to inform them how they were personally affected by the Sellinger Program and to encourage their continual support of it. Maryland state aid reduces or eliminates the students' need to take out loans, thus allowing them to pursue their education at the College.

This year's student representatives were Jennifer Liu '12, Stephen Sheredy '15, De Andre Britton '13, Johnetta Queen '13, Jessica Powers '13, Amelia Stinnette '12, Morgan Frailey '12, Heyhee Choi '14 and Julie Tae '15. They were joined by President Fred Lazarus IV, and staff members Michael Franco, Doug Mann, David Hart, Sara Warren, Erin Chrest, Carolyn Stratford-Younce, Trish Turc and Cally Brandt, who also served as coordinator.
