A champion of love, acceptance and equality.
Michael Henson was a member of the MSLS class of 2007. He was a joyful, energetic, kind and passionate sustainability advocate. He passed away suddenly on September 18, 2012, at far too young an age.
Michael’s thesis work at BTH focused on the campus sustainability movement – evaluating how higher education was and could be educating the next generation of citizens. He was an active supporterof LGBT rights.
As his obituary stated:
Michael's soul soars high because of his generous spirit of giving himself to human rights advocacy, environmental awareness… He was a champion of love, acceptance and equality. We will all be better people because of him.
In loving memory of Michael and his legacy, Stratleade is proud to announce the naming of The Michael Craig Henson Memorial Scholarship.
Each year, this grant will be awarded to a deserving student, who would not otherwise be able to study at the MSLS programme at BTH. It will support individuals with a passion for promoting equality, acceptance, and human and civil rights to reach their full potential as sustainability effective champions.
We are nearing the end of the 2012 Annual Campaign -- just two more days until Sept. 30th. And while we are getting closer, we need one big final push to get to our goal of $12,500.
As of today, we've raised $8,271 ... that leaves $4,229 to go. Please donate today to help close the gap!
The MSLS alumni have stepped up with 15% of the aluni network participating -- a very strong show of support, especially when you consider that this is a young program with only volunteers to support fundraising efforts.
We're encouraging everyone to reach out to friends and family, encouraging them to chip in whatever they can to bring us closer to our goal over this final weekend. Please help by sharing the following messages on facebook and twitter:
