The week of April 6-10 marks Wayne State University's first Graduate Student Appreciation Week (GPSA).

This nationwide event aims to highlight and acknowledge the contributions, impact and value of graduate students. Throughout the week, Wayne State's Graduate School will feature stories of students making an impact on Detroit and beyond. 

Among those students is Amber Harrison (pictured), a Graduate Student Assistant in the School of Information Sciences. Harrison, a native Detroiter, has been recognized for her efforts to preserve the city’s history and unique voices.

Harrison is currently in the MLIS/MAPH (Master in Public History) dual degree program, and is also pursing a Graduate Certificate in Archival Administration and hopes to graduate next year. She is already a Wayne State alumna, having earned both a bachelor's degree in Music Education and a master's degree in Music History at the university.
