Former Homeless Teen Earns Law School Acceptance

Her young life sounds more like something you would see on an afterschool television special than the formative years of someone who has been accepted into five law schools.
But some 17 years after finding the strength to overcome the challenge of being a homeless teenager – a girl who was on her own and pregnant -- Jamie Lee Lawler has graduated magna cum laude from Southern. And this fall, she will attend the University of Connecticut School of Law with a full scholarship.
The 33-year-old Guilford resident has earned a Bachelor of Science degree in political science. She also has a double minor – history and psychology. Read more about this outstanding young woman.

Lending Their Voices to Haiti

The volunteer work of two Southern students will be music to the ears of many Haitian children this summer.  Jessica Coppola and Allyson Kaechele will make a return trip to Haiti from June 21 to July 5 as part of "Sound for Haiti," a group dedicated to helping orphans and street children of that Caribbean nation.
Members of the organization teach music to the youngsters, as well as help feed, play with and otherwise care for them. Among the activities in which they engage with the children are interactive Creole songs and games. Read full article.  Additional article.
