When artist make it to the big leagues it’s always good to see them give back to the city that made them. An artist very familiar to this particular act of kindness is Detroit’s own, Big Sean.
Big Sean’s Sean Anderson Foundation recently donated $25,000 to Wayne State University’s HIGH (H.elping S.tundents G.o H.igher) program to provide short term support to students that attend school but have problems balancing the workload of school and food, shelter, & childcare needs.
Big Sean’s mother, Myra Anderson, who’s president of the Sean Anderson Foundation stated in a press release, “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.”
The program was founded in 2013 by Wayne State’s Jacqueline Wilson, who said in the same press release mentioned above that the Foundation’s contribution shows their “commitment to assisting those in need,” later stating, “With this gift, we will be able to help Wayne State students who are experiencing homelessness work toward a brighter future.”
