Marshall University program reaches historic milestone
They majored in biology, English, history and liberal arts. They minored in chemistry, criminal justice, music and psychology. In the next few months, the administrators and staff of the College Program for Students with Asperger Syndrome at Marshall University will watch as four students they served and mentored receive bachelor’s degrees. “This is the largest group of graduating seniors we have supported since the program began in 2002,” says CPSAS coordinator Marc Ellison. Marshall’s program is one of the best known in the country and has been featured on network and cable television as well as in The New York Times. Among the services available to students: tutoring, social skills training, counseling, and internships for upperclassmen. “It’s been a pleasure watching each student progress in their academic endeavors, and mature into young adults. I anticipate success for each, and wish them a life filled with happiness,” Ellison says. Marshall University is in Huntington, West Virginia.
