Tay Ford
Tay Ford - Class of 2008 My favorite memory at Henry Ford Academy was the International Food Fest. It was during this time I was exposed to cultures I was not knowledgeable of. On this particular day throughout my time at Henry Ford Academy I was able to look forward to the experience of food, language and ethnic clothing that made me appreciate how diverse Henry Ford Academy was and still is. It gave me the global mindset I needed for this world and my future What did you do after high school? After High School I attended Michigan State University for my Bachelors of Arts in Communication. I graduated from Michigan State University in 2013 with a degree in Communication and two minors in Sociology and Women and Gender Studies. I was recruited as a Manager of Kohl's Department Store in 2013 at the age of 23 to Lead over 60 Team Members. During my time there I led the Kohl's Care Volunteer program and supported over 25 different organizations and schools with grants and volunteers. During the same time, I decided to follow my dreams in supporting the community and went back to school for my Masters at Central Michigan University. I graduated from Central Michigan University May 2016 with my Masters in Science of Administration with a concentration in Philanthropy and Fundraising. This helped me to established my Nonprofit organization A Village of Wings. This was a mission of mine to bring back the village atmosphere of love and support to the Metro Detroit Community for Parents and Youth. In 2016 I transitioned my career towards servant leadership and joined Title Source where I support 233 Technology Team Members under the Leadership of the CIO Jeff Hu. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D in Human Services
