It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Susan Lowe, a dear friend and member of ANTSHE. Susan was a non-traditional student studying at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. She was an advocate for non-traditional students and co-founded the ANTS student organization at UM-Dearborn. She was also an advocate for environmental issues and was hoping to pursue a degree in environmental law. Susan once said, “I believe that working toward an enhanced recognition of nontraditional students at UM-Dearborn helps me make a difference on campus.”  She was truly a difference-maker and we will miss her smile and genuine kindness.
