/// KAYLEE WILLIAMS — Student Kaylee Williams, a sophomore studying social work at Adrian College, had an upbringing much unlike the majority of her fellow Bulldogs. “I was adopted when I was 12 years old with my younger sister Jenna,” Williams said. “Together, we had moved between seven foster homes — from the time I was seven to age twelve — until we got placed in the lovely home we are in now, with our two adoptive parents and their family of eleven children, ranging from ages four to 34.”

“THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME KEEP AN OPTIMISTIC ATTITUDE THROUGH EVERYTHING, AND FOR ALWAYS THINKING OF THE GLASS AS HALF FULL. I KNOW THERE’S MUCH MORE TO LIFE ­— MUCH MORE TO FILL MY GLASS AND HELP OTHERS FILL THEIRS AS WELL.” — Kaylee Williams

ADRIAN COLLEGE

Williams credits her ability to attend college in spite of her unique situation to the College’s financial aid assistance and Mrs. Bet Godard, who funds the Godard scholars. “Now, I am in the social work program here, and it has been a dream for me to become a social worker who really makes a difference in helping children overcome the many struggles I had to growing up,” Williams said. “Adrian College has brought me this much closer to my dream, and I could not be more thankful.” “I have gone through many families throughout my life, and the one I have been blessed with here at AC is one I am lucky enough to add to the list.”
