Central Michigan University junior Jennifer Eskridge of Lapeer will undergo a peripheral blood stem cell donation procedure Wednesday, March 5, to help save a 47-year-old man’s life. He’s a man she knows nothing about.
Eskridge’s inspiration comes from her mother, a cancer survivor, and former church member, Thomas Daley, who lost his life in February 2011 during a tree trimming accident. After his death, their church, Immaculate Conception, started an annual bone marrow drive in his honor.

The Alpha Leadership Experience is a five-week course offered by CMU’s Leadership Institute. The final session for the 80 participants took place last week. Here’s what a few of them had to say:
“Alpha was a very hands-on collaborative environment that I found to be very engaging.” – David Burney, freshman Leader Advancement Scholar
“Alpha was the best thing that has happened to me here at CMU. It brought out my understanding for leadership as well as my own personal style. I would love to return as a facilitator someday.” – Freshman Joshua Gostlin
“I’ve learned how to come out of my shell and help others find their true leadership potential. Alpha has inspired me to become more involved on campus.” – Alpha Facilitator Nicole Szachta
“Alpha provided the tools and experiences necessary to cultivate greater leaders out of CMU students. I’m proud to be one of those leaders.” –Freshman René Osorio
