Spartan Basketball Reacts To Lacey Holsworth's Passing

MSU News - April 10, 2014 - 12:59pm
Michigan State basketball lost one of its greatest supporters late Tuesday night when Lacey Holsworth passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. In a relationship that first started away from the spotlight and cameras, and later was initially documented by Big Ten Network's "The Journey", Holsworth developed a special bond with Adreian Payne. Holsworth was at Payne's side on Senior Day, and then again as she helped cut down the nets after MSU's victory in the Big Ten Tournament. As MSU advanced through the 2014 NCAA Tournament, Holsworth captivated a nation as her story was told through numerous outlets, including Good Morning America and The Today Show. Just last week, Holsworth was in Dallas as Payne competed in the College Slam Dunk contest and then joined him as a celebrity judge for the high school slam dunk contest.

Remembering Rwanda

MSU News - April 9, 2014 - 2:59pm
"What was your favorite place?" I got asked that a lot when I returned from traveling to 11 countries in eight weeks for the MSU President's report last year. Anyone who knows me well knows I hate making decisions and picking favorites. (Right now my husband is laughing). I can tell you a bunch of my favorite movies, but don't ask me to pick just one. Same with songs, bands, television shows, actors, meals, ice cream flavors-you name it. I just can't choose. The same went for my trip. The places were great, but the experiences in each place were absolutely amazing. There is no way I could ever pick just one place. Or even one experience. It's like picking a favorite child-which I actually can do. My first-born is my absolute favorite, hands down. She also happens to be my only. So let me get back to the question about my favorite place. Though I still can't choose, my answer has always been that I was most surprised, in a good way, about Rwanda. Before my trip, thinking about Rwanda brought up images of a horrible genocide, poverty, despair and tragedy. I would guess that's how many people think of it. I knew that MSU had projects there, but for the most part, in my head it was still a scary, dangerous, ugly place.
