Journalist Martin Snapp is my college classmate. Here is his recent online column (May 14) about Lily, a young woman who overcame enormous odds to go to college and then to law school. To read more about Lily, please click here.
These article lead me to think about our students who come from backgrounds where they received an inadequate education and have not enjoyed the same cultural advantages that many of our students have enjoyed. At my school, most of our students come from comfortable middle class and upper middle class backgrounds. The students who have not enjoyed these privileges need our support and guidance. If they lack the intellectual fire power of someone like Lily, they are in particular need of our support.
