Omar Davidson

Degree Completion Scholarship
2017/2018

I’ve been blessed to live a purposeful and fulfilling existence since leaving the University of Michigan in 1989. However premature my departure, I have never given up the hope and expectation of one day completing my college degree. My tenure as a student athlete was a challenging journey when combined with the rigors of competing both in the class room and as a track athlete. During that span of time I have managed to forge many lifelong relationships and experiences at Michigan.

 

One of my chief regrets in life to date is not completing my college degree sanctioned by the University of Michigan. Therefore my family and I view this opportunity as the ultimate final sprint towards the finish line.

 

A college degree is highly beneficial, for one never knows what the future may bring with regards to potential career changes or modifications. I simply want to finish what I’ve started years ago, and the Degree Completion Program was the final motivating factor towards accomplishing this goal.

LaTara Chaney

Degree Completion Scholarship
2012/2013

LaTara Chaney’s motivation to succeed the second time around in Ann Arbor comes from being a mother. Four times per week, her husband drops both her and her eight-year-old daughter, Kamryn, off at school — Kamryn at Elementary School and Chaney on the University campus. Chaney’s new life with her family in Ann Arbor is a far cry from when she last lived in Ann Arbor nearly 20 years ago. Then LaTara Jones, she left Ann Arbor for the last time in December 1995 after redshirting her sophomore year due to a knee injury and losing her scholarship as a junior. Without a scholarship and unable to afford tuition, Chaney moved back to her hometown of Chicago and joined the Village of Park Forest Police Department.

In June 2010, after 14 years with the police force, she was chasing a burglary suspect on a midnight shift and injured her knee — the same injury she had suffered as a sophomore in college. With permanent knee damage making future patrol work difficult, she started to look at colleges to finish her degree.

After learning about the Degree Completion Program fund, Chaney applied and was re-admitted to the University. She took 12 credit hours in the fall semester and is taking 12 this spring, and is on track to graduate in May with a degree in sport management. She takes classes in the morning and works at the Ross Academic Center in the evening.

 

Shonte Peoples

Degree Completion Scholarship
2011/2012
Shonte People arrived on the University of Michigan campus in the fall of 1990 as a highly recruited football player from Saginaw, Michigan.  He was the first in his family to receive a college scholarship.  While there, he earned many honors for his athletic ability on the field.  However, Shonte left U-M just a few credits shy of his degree due to an office campus incident.

Shonte played for a few years for the Canadian Football League, but in 2000 he suffered a career ending injury and returned to his hometown.  He worked at various low-wage jobs, but after numerous rejections for jobs, he began rethinking his life and his future.

Shelly Kovacs, Shonte’s undergraduate counselor, encouraged him to complete his degree.  Shonte knew it would be tough, so he first enrolled at Delta Community College to study radiological technology.  One of his proudest moments was earning an “A” in one of the toughest classes in his curriculum.  With the support of his friends and family, Shonte applied for and was granted readmission to the University of Michigan and will complete his Bachelor’s degree in General Studies.  He hopes to pursue a Master’s degree in counseling or psychology so he can help troubled youth and their families.
