Malik Stroughter graduated from Cass Technical High School in 2016. He utilized the Detroit Promise to help him attend Macomb Community College where he studied Business Management. Malik later transferred to the University of Michigan - Dearborn where he is studying Mechanical Engineering. He also has an internship with Walbridge that allows him to gain first-hand knowledge and exposure to engineering by working on active construction sites. After he graduates, Malik is interested in staying in Detroit and working for Walbridge in a role that lets his passion for CAD Software thrive.
If you are a student that isn't sure where you want to be in the future, or don't have a course of action to get there, the Detroit Promise is a great opportunity. My first year at Macomb Community College I met people and heard ideas that helped guide my interests and map a plan for them. College helped me find out more about myself as well, which is a priceless benefit.
