But, to fulfill those dreams, financial aid is essential every year. For some students, aid comes in the form of the MSU Promise Endowed Scholarship.

We had just come back from touring the clinic in a tiny Zambian village where very sick children were fighting for every breath. We had walked through the crowded town market where clouds of flies buzzed around the produce and fish. The roads were dusty and rugged. The sun was hot and unforgiving. As I sat down to talk with the doctor, she paused to look up on the roof of her small, dingy clinic to look for the boomslangs (a large venomous snake) that she said hung out there. She then proceeded to tell me about the cobras in her yard and worst of all, the children in the clinic who never make it.
I asked her why she did what she did. Why on earth had she chosen this place to do her work instead of some clean, modern hospital in the United States? Why wasn't she taking care of colds and flu instead of malaria, malnutrition and epilepsy in the middle of nowhere? She was a bit taken aback, smiled and said, "Because this is what I'm supposed to do." Yep. That seems to be the Spartan way.
This is what I'm supposed to do. Every single day all across the globe, you'll find other Spartans saying exactly the same thing. With little thought to their own comfort or the status quo, they're giving up the easy way and taking the hard road. They sacrifice plenty and ask little in return. They work tirelessly to help and to heal. They build and they fix. They teach and they learn. They never stop trying to repair wrongs and find new rights. They are Spartans and this is what they're supposed to do.
