It’s Wednesday and time for our Neighbors in Action segment, when Current State features people and organizations working to make Greater Lansing a better place. Today, we hear from Fostering Academics, Mentoring Excellence, or FAME, an organization at MSU that helps students who have aged out of the foster care program be successful in college.

Current State speaks with FAME life skills coach Andrea Martineau and  MSU junior and FAME student Sharonda Chaney.

Current State is looking for more nominations for our “Neighbors In Action” feature. Please help us out and e-mail us your suggestions to currentstate@wkar.org. Put ‘Neighbors in Action’ in the subject line, or tweet us: AT KARCurrentState and tell us a little about why you think they should be featured for the great work they do.
