Honors alumni make us proud and inspire us to strive even harder. They continue to carry the Ferris torch wherever they go, and their bright lights are spread throughout the state of Michigan and the world.
We at Ferris have been changed by their involvement, stimulated by their questions, impressed by their academic prowess, and touched by their volunteerism. The same qualities that made them shine here, continue to be the ones that cause them to shine in their careers. These are the people who made a difference. We believe they will continue to do so.
