Dr. Rosalind Reaves - part 1

Dr. Rosalind Reaves currently serves as faculty at OCC’s Academic Support Center (ASC) at the Royal Oak Campus. Regarding her first endowment, she writes:

It is often said that “it takes a village to raise a child.” In my case, the proverbial village was the place where I was born and bred: Detroit, my beloved Motown and Motor City.

The Dr. Rosalind Reaves-Detroit Legacy Endowed Scholarship was created to pay tribute to the city of my birth and to honor OCC students from Detroit who share a commitment to academic excellence and community service. It is my hope that each scholarship recipient, upon completion of their studies at OCC, will pay it forward and undertake the kind of giving back and service that inspired me as a Detroiter..
