Dear Southwest Family,

I hope that you have all enjoyed your holidays, and got plenty of time in with your family. I am so ready for my spring semester! I am also excited to make some amazing memories this year that will last a lifetime.

We have had an amazing time these past couple of months. Braving the cold, at all of the community festivals and parades. Everyone has been so welcoming and friendly to us.  

We had our goodwill tour for Christmas, in December, being able to see all of the wonderful residents was so heartwarming. My favorite part was when we would give them our hand made gifts, they were so excited. You could truly tell that they loved them!

I am also continuing to raise awareness for my platform. “Little Feet, Big Imprints” Awareness for Congenital Heart Defects (CHD). I would love for you to join me. I am still working with the C.S. Mott Childrens Hospital at the University Of Michigan Hospital. I am also planning new ways to earn money to support my platform. Also my crocheting of red hats is in full swing, as those will be donated to hospitals in the month of February, to help spread awareness of CHD’s.

If you would like to be an official sponsor and help me reach my goal to give back and raise awareness, please contact the Southwest Michigan Scholarship office.

Thank you,

Brianna McQuistine Gleason
