We were delighted to present Monique Miller with the Melvin and Lois Lurie Student Award. Monique, like many MHRLR students returned to school part-time while continuing her career. She reported that her graduation and the Lurie award should be encouragement to others. It is never too late to further your education no matter the circumstances. As Monique says, “even with all the challenges of the last 18 months, working students rose to the challenge.” They, like Monique, persevere.
