"Lake State is a local University that gave me the option to earn my education while be located close to my family.  My short-term goal is to gain as much experience as possible in the community and to possibly continue my education toward a Masters Degree.  I’d like to continue my work within the city and take advantage of opportunities to be more involved in local politics.  In the long term, after I’ve made myself as competitive as possible the marketing field, I’d like to get a job at a medium to large size company and work more with individual products or brands as opposed to marketing a company itself."

" Currently I am a Board Member on the Sault Ste. Marie Downtown Development Authority, in which my marketing background has been beneficial.  Also, I work with the International 500 Snowmobile race as the Chairperson of the Non-Race Events Committee and I work in the pits doing timing for the race and other tasks.  I am studying snowmobile mechanics to eventually become a race official or snowmobile technician.  I compete on the Soo Co-op Credit Union bowling team and I’m continually involving myself in various community events."

April is National Humor Month

Calling all April Fools! It’s National Humor Month—a time for joking, joshing and just plain laughing out loud. And while, yes, April can be a stressful month, a dose of humor may be just what your student needs to make it through.

Here are a few ways to share the mirth:

  • Send along a “Chuckle Chow” care package. It can include anything funny like a Snickers (tee-hee!) bar, those smiling Oreos, Laffy Taffy, smiley lollipops and more. Feed their laughter while also providing fun treats!
  • Stick a book of Mad Libs or a goofy joke book in an envelope and send it along. Cover the envelope with smiley face stickers for a real Humor Month package.
  • Sign emails with funny wordplays such as “Jest thinking of you!” or “Hope you get some smileage out of this.” Your student will think you’re a cornball yet she’ll probably love it!
  • Suggest to your student that you think about some creative, funny ways to respond to people’s polite question: “How are you?” Answer them with something like “If I was any better, I’d be twins!”
  • At your next family gathering, firehouse, PTA or Junior League meeting, ask group members to pose for a photo. The catch? Have everyone wear a bright red clown nose! Then, send a digital photo to your student. He’ll think you’re all off your rocker! Yet, chances are that he’ll show that photo to his friends, proudly.
  • Trace a roll of masking tape on bright yellow paper and cut out a bunch of smiley faces. Have everyone in the family—or in the neighborhood—write a joke or note on the back of a smiley. Then send an envelope full of the good feelings to your student at school. It’s a Smile Attack!

Have fun with the funny stuff!

"Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our irritations and resentments slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place."
