Seven is a magical number. 

That’s the number of Southeastern High School seniors who were accepted by the University of Michigan during a recent on-site admissions visit.

“Being accepted to a prestigious university like the University of Michigan-Flint allows students to see that hard work pays off,” said Allan Washington, assistant principal at Southeastern. “And underclassmen can see their peers succeeding and that hopefully motivates them to want to succeed.”

After listening to a comprehensive presentation from U of M-Flint about their campus, programs, and admission process, students submitted their portfolios for consideration. Within minutes the following students received word of acceptance: Jada Brewer, Destiny Grey, Deanna Dawson, Dominique Martin and Tiara Oliver, Joi Morgan and Lauren Reed. 

Morgan said this boosts her confidence.

“The college acceptance letters have been slow,” Morgan said. “So this acceptance letter makes me feel better about the college process.”
