Keep Moving Forward by Marissa Bickels

There is no denying that knowing a second language and becoming intimately familiar with another culture has changed my life in overwhelmingly positive ways, and I can do nothing but recommend you do the same.


The William H. Thompson Scholars Learning Community is united by our diverse experiences and backgrounds and we are empowered through our individual and collective education. We are leaders, engaging as active citizens in our local and global community. We are the change we want to see in the world today and the foundation for a better tomorrow.

Belonging. Learning. Engagement. Success.
