From Michigan With Love
Zakiya Polk ’07, the current recording secretary and community outreach chair, spearheaded the effort to send care packages to Michigan Spelman students.
Forty-one care packages were prepared and shipped to Atlanta for students, just in time for final exams. The gift bags which varied in content included a mixture of gift cards, homemade cookies, candy, chips, and hot chocolate. Each also contained a letter from a local Spelman alumna wishing students well.
Thank you to Lisa Davis-Patterson ’09, Jessica Gibbs ’11, Thameka Hall ’09, Christina Inman ’07, Alicia Lane ’07, Heather McCowan ’98, Zakiya Polk, Dr. Angela Rogers ’77, Eleisha Teasley ’10, Crystal Willis ’08, and Dr. Joslyn Witherspoon ’00 for contributing to the contents of our gift bags. Many of these same ladies assisted in the letter writing and construction of the care packages.
A special thank you also goes to Mr. and Mrs. Larry Polk and Ms. Loretta Hull for hosting alumnae to prepare the packages!
Upon receiving the packages, students were pleased and grateful.
