Marvin Logan Jr. is a Warren native, a graduate of Kent State University, and a member of the first Inspiring Minds class in 2006. Marvin will never forget the life-changing experiences he had as a student of Inspiring Minds, from the early days meeting for homework help with 3-4 other students at McDonald's, to the Milwaukee exposure trip that lead to an internship and job opportunity working for Usher’s New Look organization.
In 2017, Marvin brought his knowledge, passions and experiences to the IM team as our new Transition Coordinator. In this role, he supports and advocates for current IM students and IM graduates through their individual college and career journeys.
"Helping youth has always been my passion, and I'm extremely excited that I now get to serve students from my own backyard. IM has been there for me since 2006 and now it’s time for me to pay it forward."
Imagine receiving a surprise letter in the mail from Harvard University inviting you to attend a prestigious medical conference you've never heard of. Multiply that by 10, and that's how IM Senior, Mellreanna, felt this summer when she received an academic nomination from the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists to attend their Congress of Future Medical Leaders at Harvard University.
The Congress of Future Medical Leaders is an annual gathering of America's high-achieving high school students aspiring to become the next generation of medical leaders. Mellreanna had the opportunity of a lifetime to attend the 3-day conference, where she heard from some of the brightest minds in the medical field, made new friends from around the world, and got to watch live surgeries!
“It doesn’t matter what situation or circumstance you are in, if you believe in yourself you can achieve anything you strive for.”
When Torin joined IM in 8th grade, he probably didn’t think that 5 years later he would be giving the commencement speech at his school, inspiring his fellow graduates as they enter the next chapter of their life.
Through his time with IM, we saw Torin grow academically, personally and professionally. So much so that Torin’s Mom, Tina, explained that “last month, I felt completely confident putting Torin on a plane alone to go to boot camp because he had traveled without me before with Inspiring Minds.”
