I’m around 5’2” and my head was titled up, talking to a taller friend when I rounded the corner and ran face-first into a dumpster lid.

  I recently had the pleasure of getting to know Yolonda Lavender. She is a real WMU campus celebrity and in my opinion, a great community leader. Her musical talents, as well as her passion for the community make her a great Western Michigan representative in the streets of Kalamazoo. Yolonda Lavender is studying social work at WMU and has big plans to attend either U of M or the University of Texas-Austin to attain her Masters in Social Work degree. Though academics are very important to Lavender she still makes time to volunteer in the community and really step out and be a great community leader. I was privileged to ask Yolonda some questions, diving into what makes her tick, and what keeps her motivated.     Q: What do you do?...
