On Friday, July 3, Marygrove College will begin hosting a weekly Youth Entrepreneurship Program (Y.E.P. Detroit) designed to teach aspiring business owners between the ages of 6 and 14 about financial literacy, money management, and the essentials of becoming an entrepreneur. This is a five-week program that runs each Friday in July and costs $100.
Y.E.P. Detroit was designed and will be led by Sherika Cheney, M.Ed, in response to a still-sluggish job market, which is making it challenging for young people and recent college graduates to find financially-sustainable careers. “The Y.E.P. Detroit program is preemptive” said Cheney, “in that it teaches young people ages 6 to 14 how to develop, brand, and market their ideas, giving them access to transferrable skills that they will use in the university classroom and in the marketplace itself.”
Each Friday, grades 1-4 will meet from 10:30 a.m. to noon; Grades 5-8 will meet from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on the campus of Detroit’s historic Marygrove College. Students will engage in hands-on lessons and activities designed to teach creative idea generation, book keeping, marketing and branding, as well as skills and strategies to help them develop a mission statement.
These classes are part of Marygrove’s Kids College Camps sponsored by the college’s Academic Success Center and Continuing Education departments. For more information and registration, contact Theresa A. Jordan by email at email@example.com or by phone at (313) 927-1261. Additionally, Sherika Cheney can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We are so proud and pleased that Tim received this year’s SID of the Year award,” said Marygrove athletics director Steve Bloomfield. “His creativity and passion for our student-athletes and teams are instantly apparent in everything he does and Marygrove is fortunate to have him as a member of our team.”
Johnston received his Bachelor’s degree in sports management and marketing from Rochester College (Mich.) and earned a Master’s degree in Human Resources Management from Marygrove. It’s education Johnston put to good use to build a larger fan base for Marygrove’s 12 varsity sports through social media and local media outlets.
In a very tough Detroit market that features four professional sports teams along with coverage of four NCAA Division I programs, Johnston and crew were able to get Marygrove highlights featured on metro Detroit television stations as a result of introducing live video streaming for the first time in school history this year.
In addition to his SID and game day operations duties for Marygrove, Johnston sits on the WHAC’s ratings oversight committee for men’s basketball and serves on the conference’s Honors Task Force. Locally, he is a guest speaker for the Student Broadcast Foundation. Johnston is also active at the national level, participating in this year’s convention as a table topic presenter for NAIA-SIDA and a panelist at CoSIDA. This year, he will be a tri-chair of CoSIDA’s New Media Committee.
“It is an honor to be named this year’s Mike Dean WHAC SID of the Year,” said Johnston. “I would like to thank the great SIDs in the conference, Marygrove’s administration, and extend a huge thanks to Jeremy Otto and our outstanding student staff for helping to improve our overall presence.”
The award, named after longtime WHAC statistician Mike Dean, has been given to just four people. Dean (2007-08), Aaron Sagraves of Davenport, now at Cornerstone (2008-09), Madonna’s Patrick Moore (2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12), and Ryan Wronkowizc of Lourdes (2012-13, 2013-14).

The Marygrove String Ensemble of 30 players performed classical and movie music. The Student and Faculty Music Recital found another thirty players playing piano, violin, cello, guitar, singing and playing in a jazz ensemble.
The universal language of music was passionately expressed by young and old alike. Bravo to all that shared their gift of music.
Please find excerpts from the Marygrove String Ensemble which was celebrating its 12th year under the Artistic Direction of Anida Margariti.
Through its grant-making to thousands of nonprofits each year, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) promotes opportunities for people in communities across America to experience the arts and exercise their creativity.
The NEA recently announced that it will make a $20,000 award to Marygrove College for “Arts Engagement in Northwest Detroit: Celebrating Neighborhood Artists”.
NEA Chairman Jane Chu said, “The NEA is committed to advancing learning, fueling creativity, and celebrating the arts in cities and towns across the United States. Funding these new projects like the one from Marygrove College represents an investment in both local communities and our nation’s creative vitality.”
Marygrove College will use in-place programs at the College to engage the community and provide a truly unique arts experience. “In partnership with Marygrove College OnStage! and the Institute of Music and Dance at Marygrove College, we are excited to highlight and collaborate with local artists,” said Marygrove College Visual and Performing Arts Division Chair, Jordeen Ivanov-Ericson. “Our plan for community engagement is a yearlong series of arts events on campus and in the Northwest Detroit community, culminating in a Festival of the Arts, scheduled for September 2016.”
This grant is part of an NEA funding round that will provide $74.3 million nationwide to over 1,000 groups and organizations. To join the Twitter conversation about these NEA grants, please use #NEASpring2015. For more information on projects included in the NEA grant announcement, go to arts.gov.
