Many would also point out she’s a wiz with a needle and thread, making countless costumes and formal attire for her family and friends. We can see her various crafts every Sunday morning during Sunday School Breakfast and other church events. After retiring from DISD Mary began creating culinary delights through her Sunday breakfast ministry at St Mark Missionary Baptist Church. In addition to serving in the Food Ministry, she also taught Vacation Bible School, Adult and Children Sunday School, and orchestrated a community block party for St Mark. An important aspect of Mary’s life is family: her beloved husband, Bobby Jackson has been her sunshine for 27 years whom she enjoys traveling and gardening.
God and church activities have been a part of my weekly routine for as long as I can remember. If it is nine o’clock on a Sunday morning, I will definitely be in a church pew at Highland Baptist Church. My parents make sure that I understand the importance of going to church and trying to exemplify the spirit of Christ daily. I have been given the amazing opportunity to be raised on Godly morals in a strong Christian household. Because of this, God has always been the center of my life, or at least that is what I thought.
Diversity Statement My current field education placement at the vineyard church of Evanston, which is a part of my master of divinity program bring people from fifty-five different nations. These people come from different socioeconomic backgrounds. This is my second year at this placement which ends in the May of this year. Most of the time, I am surrounded by my Caucasian friends and colleagues, therefore, this was enriching experience to listen to the stories and struggles of the people of diverse backgrounds. I wish I had training to offer them some help while empathizing with them in their situations.
For my first diversity event I decided to attend the 43rd annual Mankato wacipi (Powwow). I chose this event because I attended some like it when I was younger. I always have admired Native Americans and their deep connection with their spirituality. I remember in fifth grade my elementary school hosted a Powwow that my mother and I attended. This was the first time I have ever been exposed to the Native American culture and the memory has stuck with me till now.
You have good programs and degrees based off of my career interests. As well as, the fact that you guys are a Christian-based university. When I went to the Patriot Preview, this past year, the very first thing that we did as a group was worship in the chapel. It set the mood for the whole day. As we pulled up the long road leading to the chapel, I remember thinking about how beautiful Dallas Baptist University’s campus was.
Even when I get home from work late, I still give 110% to my studies. Besides my family, my academics are the most important thing to me. I also feel that I am the right person for this organization because of my leadership roles at Dairy Queen. Every time that a new employee is hired I am expecting to train and mentor them. Not only have I been a leader at work, but I have also been a teacher at my church every summer and during vacation Bible school.
In the middle of metro Detroit stands a small city, only about a mile square and half of that consumed by the Detroit Zoo and Rackham Golf Course. Nicknamed The City of Homes, Huntington Woods is a tight knit neighborhood consisting mostly of families, many who have lived in the city for several generations. The city boasts many annual neighborhood events such as the Fourth of July Parade and Ice Cream Social. Neighbors constantly appear at each others homes asking for advice, support, assistance, or to simply chat a while. Growing up with this strong sense of community is something I have carried with me throughout my life, from being highly involved in high school musicals to building a supportive academic network in my major at Michigan State.
No matter your age, your background, or your religious affiliation, service is a crucial part of our everyday lives and everyone should get involved in this and do a service out of the good of their hearts. Throughout my three years of being in St. Thomas Aquinas High School, I have participated in a few different acts of service. For every year in my high school career, I did service at my old elementary and middle school, All Saints Catholic School. During Presidents’ Day weekend, I provided help at their Church’s carnival for four days--Thursday to Sunday. All Saints Catholic School’s mission statement states “The Mission of All Saints Catholic School is to provide an atmosphere rich in the Catholic faith where each child is challenged to grow in a safe environment.

One of the five items in my treasure box is my St. Martha sweater I received for my graduation. I chose this item because the experiences at St. Martha has shaped me into the individual I am today. This sweater is important to me because it represents an era of my life that I won’t ever forget. I grew up in the school and the sweater is a reminder of how much I’ve grown throughout the past ten years. I’ve spent the past ten years of my life at St. Martha and I’ve learnt countless life lessons from my experiences, teachers, and students from the school.
