June 6, 2012 – On May 30, Thomas M. Cooley Law School's Ann Arbor campus hosted 14 Ypsilanti High School (YHS) students as part of the "A Woman's Worth" mentoring group. This mentoring group pairs Ypsilanti High School students with Cooley Law School students, whose focus is to educate and encourage young women about their worth.
Students toured the campus and participated in Professor Alan Gershel's Criminal Procedure class. Cooley law student Tamaris Henagan-Sprow gave an inspiring, motivational speech about believing and achieving as she shared how she conquered the many adversities in her life prior to attending law school.
