Winona State University, Major: Public Administration
St. Paul Central, 2009
Service-to-Children Project: Big Brothers Big Sisters
While working towards his Public Administration degree at Winona State University, DeShawn Woods also participated in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program and spent a considerable amount of time with his “little brother” Zach. DeShawn undoubtedly has set lofty vocational and educational goals, a master’s degree in Public Administration leading to a position as either an attorney or a US Senator. Yet DeShawn's ambition and ability, coupled with the experience and assistance he gained as a Page Scholar, have made his dreams for the future an attainable reality. "I just want to personally extend my gratitude to Mr. and Mrs. Page and the entire Page Foundation for believing in me and investing in my future," he says.
